Wow your readers.

Whether they’re sorting through submissions at a top agency or taking a peek at your free sample on the Kindle Store, readers want to be swept away by your words. That means making your work the best it can be.

You don’t need an MFA to craft a compelling narrative or write mind-blowing prose. But no matter your skill or experience as a writer, getting an external editor’s eyes on your manuscript is a vital part of honing your craft.

I want to help you shape your novel into something truly extraordinary. Whichever stage you’re at with your writing project, I offer feedback and editorial services that encourage you to look at your work from a new perspective. My goal is to inspire you to revise that manuscript, focus in on the page, and get your story ready to share with the world.

How can I help?

How it Works

Once you’ve sent me details of your project and we’ve discussed the type and scope of editing that you’d prefer, I’ll send you a contract for you to review. I ask for a 20% deposit, with the rest to be paid once our editing is complete. I’ll be in close contact throughout the duration of the process. And of course, once I’ve sent you my notes, I’m always happy to address any questions you might have about them and to discuss your next steps.
