Project details

You will get a professionally edited manuscript of up to 10,000, 20,000, or 30,000 words (depending on your purchased tier or more, if that's what you require) that is ready to format and submit to an agent or publisher, or for self-publication on Amazon, Ingram Sparks or any other platform that you choose. All edits will be made in Microsoft Word or Google Docs using Track Changes so that you can see each revision that was made.

This editing will include correcting all technical language issues such as spelling, grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, as well as any typos, and improving the flow, readability, and word choice for your book's age group and genre.

I am an editor and proofreader who is passionate about helping authors refine their work so that it is ready to market. I have extensive experience working with a wide range of content, from childrens' books to historical research.

My clients have gone on to confidently self-publish their books, send their manuscript to publishers for consideration, or distribute their business's manuals and marketing materials, knowing that I have corrected the errors and that they have produced a well-written product.

My areas of expertise for fiction:
☑️ Manuscript Evaluation: mysteries, crime thrillers, memoirs, literary fiction, short stories, youth and children's
☑️ Developmental editing: mysteries, crime thrillers, memoirs, literary fiction, short stories, youth and children's
☑️ Copy editing: all genres
☑️ Proofreading: all genres

My areas of expertise for nonfiction texts:
☑️ Website copy

☑️ Training manuals
☑️ Recipe books
☑️ True crime
☑️ History

I am happy to provide samples of my work and a sample edit of your writing. I use Track Changes so that you can see every revision, suggestion, and recommendation that I have made in your manuscript.

There is no need to leave your book unread.

Get in touch today to learn more about how I can help you get your book into a reader’s hands!

All the best!
