Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $16

Two years ago I set out to help other writers polish their work for publication. I have edited dozens of full length fiction novels across a range of genres, and countless short works and sample chapters.

My goal when editing is to nurture the storyteller in my clients, while helping to improve character development, dialogue, pacing, point of view, and overall story arc.

I currently run two fiction related sites, one for marketing and one for editing:
www.storytelleralley.com and www.firstpagelastpage.com

Service Description

Beta Read: Just want to know if a reader enjoys and understands your writing? I'll read your book, cover to cover, and tell you what I think. You'll get notes on characters, plot, and the overall readability of your story. If there were any stumbling blocks or stellar, stand-out moments I'll make sure you know. This is a great way to find out what readers outside of your personal circles think about your writing.

Eagle-Eyed Proofread: Worried about spelling or grammar? Not sure if you should have used a comma or a semi-colon? Have no fear, writer friend! I stand at the ready to make sure youíve crossed you tís and dotted your iís. I'll point out spelling mistakes, grammar and punctuation errors, and any blips in formatting.

Secret-Sidekick Edit: There is nothing like another writer to help you dig in and sand and polish all those rough spots. I'll read your story and share specific ideas and suggestions for improving everything from pacing, structure, plotting, and character development. From the first sentence to the closing line, I'll be your secret sidekick. Itís your story and with a little help itíll shine like the top of the Chrysler building!
