A brief overview of the services I can offer:
I will review and provide feedback on your manuscript in the form of both scene- and chapter-level margin notes and a comprehensive editorial letter that addresses relevant issues of structure, character, pacing, plot, worldbuilding, and more.
I will review and provide feedback on your manuscript in the form of an editorial letter that addresses relevant issues of structure, character, pacing, plot, worldbuilding, and more. The editorial assessment does not include margin notes.
I will review and provide feedback on your manuscript in the form of line edits to address issues of sentence structure, grammar, word choice, spelling, formatting, and other grammatical or typographical errors.
My background is in science fiction and fantasy for the adult and young adult-crossover audience--for editorial jobs, I will be best suited to work on those genres and markets. For proofreading jobs, I can consider works in other genres.
I love helping authors refine their projects and find those moments of epiphany where everything just clicks, and I hope to be able to provide that for your work. Please reach out if you feel I might be a good fit to provide feedback on your novel!
I began my career at DAW Books as an editorial assistant, gaining knowledge and experience within the industry over six years as I worked towards my final position as an acquiring editor. While at DAW, I worked extensively with a variety of authors on both science fiction and fantasy novels, providing editorial feedback for first drafts and revised manuscripts, pitching the books to our sales force, and positioning the books within the SFF market.
