Because everyone has a story to tell.

Maybe you're just starting out with writing. Maybe you've been at it long enough to get some rejections–and not understand why. Whether you're writing with a market in mind or just to get your story down on paper, when it's time to publish, having an experienced editor on your side will help.

As an editor for a variety of publishers, I've worked with hundreds of writers just like you. Writers who need a little coaching, writers who need a little push, writers who need some direction. From self-published, how-to books to paranormals to the wildest romance and fantasy, I can help you organize your story, find a consistent voice, determine a point-of-view (POV), and mine your piece for symbols and imagery that will resonate with readers–and editors. 

I specialize in substantive/developmental editing, an edit of material for structure, clarity, completeness, organization, plot, pacing, characterization, and topic coverage as appropriate for fiction and non-fiction titles. I recommend revisions to improve readability, marketability, and mechanics with extensive suggestions to author. My experience includes romance, horror, paranormals, GLBT, thrillers, memoir, how-to, and business.

Or an editorial evaluation can give you an overview for structure, clarity, completeness, organization, plot, pacing, characterization, and topic coverage as appropriate for fiction and non-fiction titles. This is a precursor to a developmental edit. If you're an advanced writer and don't need a full DE, an EE may be all you need. If you're a beginning writer and aren't sure where to start, an EE can give you a sense of what revisions to make.
