Doing everything you can to hedge your bets in the ever-changing world of publishing is smart. It’s also essential.
If you are a serious writer looking for a careful, devoted edit or critique of your manuscript, my writing serivces can help. I am a multi-published author and educator with many years of experience in the publishing field, specifically with the revision and editing process.
I specialize in general fiction, women’s fiction, mystery (especially cozies), romance, middle grade, and YA.
Complete editing takes time, but it’s a necessary step in the publishing process.
My editing services include proofreading, an editorial letter, and line editing on:
structure (based on the 3 Act Structure and/or the hero’s journey)
voice and style
Note: Line Editing is done on a chapter by chapter basis so you can keep moving forward with your work.
