-I've published four non-fiction and three fiction books, and am a best-selling author in both genres. I understand the writing and publishing process and can support you in moving your manuscript forward.

But you know deep inside that editing involves more than finding typos and correcting punctuation. You know you need a professional, but are just not sure who to trust.
In this package, I provide two complete edits of your book:
First Edit – Developmental and Style

There are a zillion little things that will need to be fixed in order for your reader to have a flawless reading experience. I’ll correct them for you.
