You deserve an editor who luvs your work as much as you do.
An editor is perhaps the most important finishing touch to your book. Hiring one can be a pain in the butt. Trust me, I get it. So, let me tell you a little about what I do and why I love editing. First, understand I in no way want to rewrite your story. It is yours and I get that. Also, understand that there are two sides in my brain when I read a book; a reader who loves a good story, and an editor who loves her red pen. I am a bit old school when it comes to editing as I do not like adverbs and passive sentences. However, I understand that part of the joy of knowing the rules is knowing how and when to break them. That’s the difference between a good story and a great story. Let me help you polish your book with the following services:
Line/content editing takes a deep look at the content, evaluating word choice, grammar, and story flow. This often involves a little more time because the piece is not as polished. This service is good to use after the author’s edits when the piece needs a more removed point of view. For this service, I offer two read-throughs.
Flash Fiction Edit
Entering a contest? I will proofread a piece of flash fiction, up to 2,000 words for free.
I edit fiction and non-fiction books except any using the APA style guide, technical manuals, or pieces involving a high-level of content knowledge. If you are interested, please email me at email@example.com. Share a synopsis with me and attach the first five pages of your piece. This enables us to determine the best way to proceed. If we decide to work together, a 1/3 deposit is required with payment in full upon completion. All word counts are based on my version of MS Word and all documents must be in MS Word.
