Services


Not sure what editorial services you need? Contact me and let’s see if I’m the right fit for your project. I offer free sample edits to determine what level of editing is needed and create an estimate (see my rates here). Depending on the nature of the project, I also offer one-on-one mentoring services, editing for query letter submissions and marketing copy, and SEO and brand voice editing and proofing for businesses. Don’t hesitate to reach out about your editorial needs.

PROOfreading

I help authors fine-tune their manuscripts for consistency during the final stages of the submission process, checking for typographical errors; proper word usage; basic grammar; consistency within format and punctuation; typos, misspellings, and other discrepancies; overall appearance, typeface, and fonts.

COPYEDITING

I provide line-by-line edits to ensure correct and consistent spelling, capitalization, punctuation, numerals, abbreviations, formats of lists, hyphenations, and similar elements in a manuscript. I check for properly cited quotations, correct style of in-text citations, bibliographies, reference lists, and footnotes or end notes. I also flag wordy or awkward language that may need revision.

CONTENT EDITING

I make suggestions to recast the sentence or reorganize content. As a substantive editor, I focus on overall flow, style, tone, plot, theme, character development, pacing, point of view, dialogue, readability, content/tension, description, and other storytelling techniques. I provide detailed suggestions for revision while keeping the reader in mind, addressing narrative inconsistencies, gaps, and weaknesses.

STORY EVALUATION

Not sure you’re ready for line-by-line edits? A manuscript critique is a step before developmental editing. I evaluate the structure and big-picture ideas of your story, providing clear, constructive feedback assessing strengths and weaknesses. I read your manuscript closely, make annotations, and craft an in-depth editorial letter with my initial thoughts.
