I provide high-quality editing and writing services including manuscript critiques, developmental editing, substantive editing, and line editing. In order to give each manuscript the exclusive and careful attention it deserves, I limit the number of editorial projects I take on.
I understand the elements that build a great story. I will help you to improve your characterization, plot, and mechanics to hook readers from the first page and keep them hooked.
My edits resolve weaknesses on the book, chapter, and sentence level to ensure your writing is clear, consistent, and compelling while retaining your own unique style and voice.
My focus is not proofreading or only correcting grammar. I help authors to strengthen and refine their writing by addressing complex elements including:
Plot, conflict, and suspense
Style and flow
Voice and tone
Point of view
Eliminating wordiness and repetition
Showing versus telling
My edits include explanations for different types of recommended revisions, making it easier for authors to improve their future writing.
I am a member of The Editorial Freelancers Association.
