Professional Editing for Your Story


Around every novel hover the hopes of a determined wordsmith: hopes of riveting family and friends, hopes of making the best-seller lists, or hopes of finally holding a beautiful, finished book. Fears lurk, too: of endless rejection slips, of one-star ratings, and of putting heart and soul into a story only to have it languish, unread and unloved.

I cannot guarantee your story will sell, but I can help you give your novel the best chance of success. I offer several types of editing for fiction and narrative nonfiction:

  • Manuscript assessments identify strengths and weaknesses in full or partial novels and provide resources for revision.
  • Developmental and substantive editing repair potholed plots, strengthen wavering character voices, and fix other structural problems.
  • Copyediting rescues dangling participles, corrals stray punctuation, and cleans up cluttered sentences.
  • ePub Scrubs prepare copyedited novels for e-book conversion.

Whether you want to impress a traditional publishing agent or enthrall your readers with a self-published e-book, I can help you deliver a clear and polished story to your audience. Email me and give your story the professional editing it deserves.
