Service Description

Query Letter Revisions:
Do you have a publishable manuscript but just aren't sure how to get the attention of a literary agent? After long afternoons reading through the slush pile, I've learned what makes a query letter stand out from the rest.
Not only will I revise your query letter with you, but I'll also explain why we're changing things so that you never make the same mistake twice.

Manuscript Revisions:
Congratulations on finishing a manuscript! Now what do you do with it? Not sure you can trust your mom's opinion on whether or not it's publishable? No worries! I'll not only read through your manuscript, but I'll offer pages of thorough notes on what's working, what's not, and how you can fix it.
I have experience working with every genre, and can help you no matter what your degree of training or expertise is.


All work is delivered in a timely fashion, with a waiting period of 48 hours being typical, and a week being the longest. Repeat clients receive discounts.
