"Ginny Yttrup is a writing pro who takes a manuscript from good to, oh my goodness, it’s great. With a deft eye for detail and a deep understanding of story, she improved my novel by 100 percent, and then doubled that. More than all, she guided me, as the writer, to craft places I didn’t know I could go. You’ll gain more than you can imagine by working with such an insightful, empowering, talented coach."

"Working with Ginny was a wonderful experience. She is warm and compassionate which made discussing the sensitive nature of my story so much easier. She was professional and attentive, and I could tell she cared about my story and how it was presented. I had read one of her books and knew she was a talented writer. She is equally gifted as an editor. When I got my developmental edit back I was amazed at her thoroughness and all of her suggestions and critique. I took my time and applied her critique/advice step by step, and I was thrilled with the finished product. My manuscript was elevated to a whole new level. I learned so much from Ginny through the process. I am now a better writer, and I can take those skills into my next project. Worth every penny. I trust Ginny and will be using her again for sure!"
I have freelanced as a writing coach and developmental editor for the last seven years. I offer developmental edits for both fiction and memoir manuscripts and have worked with new authors and multi-published authors to ensure their story ideas are fully developed. I offer complete developmental edits, looking at plot, structure, pacing, character and story arcs, character development, and more. Each developmental edit is done using track changes in Microsoft Word, and is accompanied by a comprehensive edit summary.
I am an award-winning, bestselling novelist, both traditionally and independently published.
