Service Description

I provide all levels of editing services: developmental (content/story), copyediting, mechanics (grammar/sentence structure), and proofreading.

I am a champion of new authors and work closely with my clients to help them produce books they can be proud of.

The process begins with a discussion about your book, your goals, your reasons for writing the book, and your overall vision for the story.

I'll review your manuscript and provide a detailed evaluation that identifies any major issues and the overall condition of the story. This helps to provide a good idea of the amount of work involved and an accurate estimate of the time needed to edit your manuscript.

Next, we'll begin the editing process. First, we'll concentrate on the content and focus on plot, character development, pace, flow, and other major story elements. For nonfiction, this we'll focus on flow and organization, clarity of ideas, and address any other areas related to content that need work. We'll work closely during this editing pass.

Second, I'll edit the manuscript for grammar and mechanics.

Finally, I'll proofread the entire manuscript.
