Project details

The entirety of your manuscript must be strong to satisfy readers, but before you can worry about that, you must first reel readers in! Whether you hope to self-publish your book or would prefer to pursue traditional publishing (by securing an agent to sell your work), so much hinges on the efficacy of your first 50 pages.

I will read the first fifty pages of your novel and provide you with an edit letter that tells you what's working and what's not. As an agented author, I have an idea of how to draw agents and readers in, although every reader is different and I must mention that caveat. Depending on which package you order, you may also receive comments at the line level, which offers more insight as to where things are working and where things are struggling, as well as a marketability analysis that provides insight as to how your book may fit into the market (and what you can do to strengthen your appeal)!

Genres I prefer to work in include: contemporary young adult, dystopian YA, romance (wholesome, contemporary, romcom, etc.), and the full gamut of women's fiction. I work with other genres on occasion; just message me in advance.

I look forward to working with you!

I'm an expert in helping brands shine. I have gained extensive experience in both marketing and writing — which are often intertwined — and would love to use my proficiencies to benefit you. From ghostwriting novels, to writing whitepapers and case studies, to proofreading content with an eagle-eye, I'm a multi-faceted professional who adheres to deadlines and listens to you every step of the way.

Companies that love my work:

What past clients say:
- “We had an excellent experience working with Alexis - she was thorough, creative and sensitive to what we were looking for in the content we wanted to have executed.”

- "Alexis is the only person I have ever given perfect feedback to. I have had the pleasure to work with her over the past several months and she has been incredible. Her communication was always perfect and the quality of her work was beyond what I could have ever expected. She really listened to me, and every week she delivered on time."

- "Alexis was really great to work with! I appreciate that she took the time to provide extra advice and guidance."

- “Very rarely do you come across a freelancer with the professionalism that Alexis shows. She was open to all criticism and was able to mold a piece from truncated pieces that were given to her.”

- "You've been our biggest success with Upwork! I've never had someone write so consistently well, and on time. It's much appreciated!"
