I've been writing fiction for about 25 years and I've learned A LOT about story crafting and all levels of editing.
One of my greatest passions is helping other authors craft the stories in their hearts. I'd love to help you, too! 😊

Have a finished manuscript, (or even a few chapters), but want a second pair of unbiased eyes to look it over? I'm your gal. I've been evaluating manuscripts of all kinds for over a decade; I'm reliable, fast, and thorough, and would LOVE to help you make your story the best it can be!

manuscript evaluation - $2.00 per 1,000 words or $0.0020 per word
This is where the real magic happens, folks. This is where I take your working draft and help you make it AWESOME. 😍
I offer the full range of editorial services, detailed below the price list.
I'll be honest, this is my favorite part, which is why I listed it first. I love to get into a story and figure out what makes it tick - and how to make it shine!
This level of editing is the most comprehensive, and includes all other types of editorial services I offer (proofreading, copy editing, and line editing.) You'll get deep, thoughtful feedback on all aspects of your work, including but not limited to: story structure, character development, thematic elements, and prose readability. I'll make notes in your document(s) as well as in a LONG and very detailed email that will lay all my feedback out like a buffet of authorial goodness.
This is worth every penny. 😁
I've been writing fiction for almost a quarter-century, and have been providing this level of feedback for almost half that time. I've got a Bachelor's in English Literature from Florida State University, a school known for producing excellent writers. I'll work my ass off for you - that's my guarantee.
This level of editing also includes one (1) hour of FREE consultation, either by phone, Skype, or Discord.

This is also called line editing , mechanical editing, or "super nitpicky" editing. Copy editors smooth out the rough edges of your story, which can include things like:
Copy editors are the unsung heroes of any written word, because without us, the reader would be too distracted by spelling mistakes or continuity issues to enjoy the story. A good copy editor has an eye for detail and the patience of an oak tree. I've got both aplenty.
This level of editing usually comes after developmental, and should only be performed on a completed manuscript.
This is the final step before formatting and publication, and is best performed on a "fresh" piece. This means that if I've helped develop your story and provided copy edits, you're probably better off finding someone else to perform this task.
However, if you're new here or you would like my eagle-eye no matter what, I'll go over your manuscript with a figurative fine-toothed comb to tease out any remaining typos, spelling errors or inconsistencies, or anything else that's confusing. My ultimate goal is to make your story the best it can be!
