Want to self publish your book? Looking for feedback before submitting to agents and editors? Trying to revise after a few rejections? You've come to the right place.
MY EDITING MOTTO:
A good editor is a coach--not a critic.
WHAT YOU NEED
· a seasoned professional who has the skill to whip your manuscript into shape while staying true to your story and respecting your voice
· specific, actionable feedback that not only strengthens your story but helps you learn and grow as a writer
· someone who will point out what you're doing right as well as making suggestions for what's not working
WHY I CAN HELP
· I've got 15 years of experience, including 5 at Kensington Publishing.
· I edit most types of fiction but specialize in romance and mysteries.
· I've worked with authors who are just starting out and ones at the top of their publishing game, including NYT and USA Today bestselling authors.
· Edits can seem scary, but they don't have to be! Clients often tell me they felt nervous about receiving feedback, but my approach made them feel energized and gave them back the "spark" they needed to finish revising.
