I have worked in the publishing industry for 9 years with a successful track record of editing and selling SFF, horror, and non-fiction projects in both the adult and young adult market.
My editorial services focus on developing and fine-tuning a project before it's submitted to agents or publishers for consideration. This includes an editorial letter which addresses world-building, plot/structure, character development, and consistency.
I'm also available to provide shorter editorial letters with inline comments, via TrackChanges, addressing aspects which may need more developing.
I especially enjoy building non-fiction proposals and am more than happy to help you build one.
Projects I have edited, developed, and sold include:
Michael Hodges — THE PULLER, THE INVASIVE, BLACK FRIDAY
Johnny Compton — THE SPITE HOUSE (sold to Tor/Nightfire for six-figures)
Donyae Coles — MIDNIGHT ROOMS (sold to HarperCollins/Amistad in pre-empt)
Dr. Paul Sutter — YOUR PLACE IN THE UNIVERSE, HOW TO DIE IN SPACE
Susan Ashline — WITHOUT A PRAYER
Andrew Post — CHOP SHOP, MONDO CRIMSON, SWITCHBOARD
Suzanne Young — WHERE THE NIGHT HAS TEETH, THE PROGRAM, GIRLS WITH SHARP STICKS
Dr. Robin George Andrews — SUPER VOLCANOES
Jim Tracy — SWORN TO SILENCE
Diana Rodriguez Wallach — SMALL TOWN MONSTERS, PROOF OF LIES
****My services as a freelance editor are wholly separate from my position as a literary agent, which means I cannot and will not consider or represent any project I review/edit as an editor. Nor will I refer you to another agent and/or publisher. This is my profession and I will not partake in any, or implied, pay for play or conflict of interest. These services are only meant to help you strengthen your project for the next stage in your journey.***
