Need Help With Your Book? My Editing Services

That question is harder to answer than people think.  A more important question we should ask first is,

Where Are You At?

If you are still in the planning stages … if you haven’t considered a proposal or the overall narrative arc of your fiction/nonfiction book … we should talk strategy and figure out your next step.

If you are at the proposal or manuscript stage, that involves a different conversation.

Either way, email me and let’s set up a time to talk.  I can help you with:

 

QUERYING AGENTS

FINDING POTENTIAL PUBLISHERS

COPY-EDITING YOUR MANUSCRIPT

CREATIVE EDITING OF YOUR MANUSCRIPT

SERVING AS A SOUNDING BOARD

AND MORE

 

Who Am I?

  • For many years, I served as critic and editor for a major newspaper book section receiving 400-500 galleys and finished books per week
  • I was part of a team that produced an amazingly successful literary festival every year (and still does)
  • Both roles have given me connections to the publishing industry
  • I’m an author with a novel-in-progress (that is another story, and I’ll share my journey with you during our opening phone consultation).
  • I’m an experienced editor of published manuscripts, from short form to book-length.

(Google me.)

  • I’ve decided to draw on that experience to help my fellow-writers because other writing coaches don’t have my background.

The writer’s journey is one of the most important journeys in a person’s life.

It would be my honor to help you with yours.  Contact me if you want more information about my services.
