Erin Molta – Editor

Is something missing in your manuscript? I can help you make your characters sizzle, your plot compelling and your manuscript sparkle!

Overview

I have worked in publishing for the past 34 years. I started editing children's books--novelty, picture books, middle grade, and YA in traditional publishing houses. More recently, I've been editing romance novels, focusing on historical and contemporary rom-coms. I've worked with bestselling authors Callie Hutton, Pamela Munoz Ryan, Marion Dane Bauer, Michelle McClean, and the late Paul Zindel on e-books, traditional picturebooks, and hardcover novels.

I am quick and efficient and respond promptly. Unlike friends or family, I'll tell you what works AND what doesn't in your manuscript.

Thank you so much for going beyond what was expected. She pinpointed the exact peculiar gaps in the MS and helped even with many nuances from the period word phrases, including some of my language pitfalls and as such. I am very grateful for her professional help!

I'm interested in thoughtful, voice-driven manuscripts. I especially love stories that include queer characters and/or speculative elements.
