Project details

If you want someone who has a trained eye for what will and won't fly with agents and editors —from big picture no-no’s to misplaced commas to dreaded semicolons (agents actively look for them as red flags the writer is new), to confusingly structured sentences and repeated words, to say nothing of spotting weak dialogue/plot elements and areas to enhance, then pick me. If, at the end of the project, I feel the manuscript is something my agent is looking for, I’d be happy to give you a referral so when you query you WILL be put to the top of the pile, which is a huge bonus.

And, speaking queries . . . Not only can I help, but I have a regular group of agented CPs I can always pass the query by for extra feedback/critiquing (free of charge).

I WILL treat your baby (let’s face it, that’s what our books are, right? Lol) as I treat my own.

Hello!
My name is Shannon O’Brien. I write Adult and Young Adult romance fantasy and adventure with magical realism and/or speculative elements. I’ve been studying writing, editing, and story structure since 2010. I’ve seen a lot of bad advice floating around and it drives me nuts (talking out of your rectum will do that to me 😂). I’ve written thirteen novels, edited over 100, and I’m currently represented by Shannon Snow of Creative Media Agency.

My goal is to help new authors polish their manuscripts without changing the voice. Having been on the other side, I know what it’s like, and I’m here to help. I’ve been helping fellow writers now for over a decade. Your manuscript will be my main focus. It will get the same treatment as mine (and I’m an anal perfectionist, so heads up! 😜).

Steps for completing your project

After purchasing the project, send requirements so Shannon can start the project.

Delivery time starts when Shannon receives requirements from you.

Receive Sample Pages From Client

I review the sample pages, seeing if we’ll be a good fit.

Client Sends Full Manuscript

Client will send me the first half of their manuscript, which I will then edit.
