Overview

I have been involved in the small press horror community for over a decade now. Covering all the bases, I started out as an aspiring writer, became an editor, worked with an agent reviewing and selecting books and authors for placement in the agency, dabbled in publishing myself (and intend to revisit that soon) and currently work on a website doing reviews of material in the horror genre.

Service Description

I specialize in full scale editing. My process involves a very intrusive look at your work. I go through the entirety of a manuscript searching for typos, wrong words, dropped words, punctuation errors, grammatical mistakes and every other common mistake likely to be made. In addition to this I deal with conceptual issues within the framework of a story. I question everything with the intention of helping you produce an end product that will be free from having any such issues.

However, I approach every moment of my editing work as a cooperative partnership. I am working on YOUR story. Not mine. I don't make any changes. I make suggestions. Even when it is a typo. I want to make sure that you understand everything that I do with your manuscript, because in the end it is your name on the front cover.
