Polish your words with an Experienced Editor

When it comes to editing, I generally think of authors as supplying the muscle and I, on the flip side, ensure the connective tissue is in place. A book is like a functioning body--everything has to work together to truly come alive! A solid editor is absolutely invaluable to the writing and publishing grind. They identify where a text needs revision and what parts are working harmoniously. Thinking an in-house publishing editor, or online editing tool, is enough to catch any mistakes in a book is a mistake in itself. Hiring an independent editor ensures that the quality of your book will be rock solid before it hits the physical or digital bookshelves of the world. My work over the years has comprised editing and formatting: -Novel-length books (fiction & non-fiction) -Essays, poems, novellas, and short stories -Training/ lesson plans for private and government organizations ...as well as doing beta reads for authors and the film industry. Guiding new or experienced writers to truly discover their voice and flesh out their stories is an absolute joy. Everybody has an interesting story to bring to the table--they sometimes just need help to polish and piece it together. My background in writing and editing, plus my experience as a frontline worker, means I bring a unique perspective to the table. Whether you are looking to clean-up stilted dialogue or ensure the accuracy of scientific details or just figure out where to begin, I've got you covered!
