EDITING SERVICES

I bring a Personal Touch to editing...I edit what I love to read.  I offer one-on-one consultations for writers looking to polish their story, preparing their manuscript for publishing.  As an editor, it’s my job to make sure the writer’s work says what the writer intends and says it in the writer’s voice and with their sensibilities.

I offer 3 editing packages--Full Developmental, Line and Copy, and Basic Copy/Proofreading.  

Want to try before you buy?  I will do a Sample Edit of any 5 double-spaced pages of your manuscript, for FREE!
