I can help make sure your work is ready to be shared with the world! I'll look at the entirety of your writing – from a broad overview of how everything interweaves and flows, down to the duplicated sentence and the misplaced comma. I'll correct spelling errors, suggest a more fitting phrase, or reorder a paragraph for more clarity. I’ll help unravel your message so your reader will be able to grasp it and understand the true essence of your meaning.
And through it all, I will respect that it’s your writing and it must be kept in your voice. I'm simply polishing your gold. :)
My ultimate goal is to raise your writing to a higher level while being faithful to your story. Let me help your words come to life, jump off the page, and land directly into your reader's heart. Tell me what you're working on and I'll tell you how I can assist.
I take pride in the relationships I've developed with my clients. Here are a few comments I've recently received from some of them (and then see more Reedsy reviews below):
"Thank you so very much for the edits and feedback. … It is interesting – the more I write and work with you, the more I come to understand … your suggestions really do make it read better. I remember how much I enjoyed working with you on the first book, and this experience mirrored that." — Jacqualine Haller, author of Love You to the Stars and Back, and Grandpa John and Uncle Peter
"I loved working with you on Unveiled … I believe the author-editor relationship should be open and friendly and not discouraging. … Offering feedback and critique in an encouraging way, as in your case... made me love working with you and will keep on doing it for my next stories onwards." — Samreen Ahsan, author of Once Upon a [Stolen] Time
"… it’s exactly what I was needing. Thank you so much for this, and for the quick turnaround. Greatly appreciated!!!" — Jenny Ayigah, author of Create a Heart of Faith in a World of Fear
"I have just completed accepting your edits and addressing your comments. Thank you for your insights and attention to details that were missed by me. It was very helpful." — Joseph Morin, author of Villains, Victims & The Vanquished: A Memoir
