As a book coach and developmental editor, I partner with writers to help them through every step of the book-writing process, from concept through to finished manuscript. I coach authors in not only how to *write* a winning book but how to get it *published.*
As a developmental editor, I ensure that each manuscript is serving its purpose: to solve a problem, meet the reader's needs, and offer sustainable, effective solutions. I provide each author with personalized feedback on everything from tone and organization to content weaknesses and strategies for resolving them. As a copy editor, I polish and code each manuscript so that it's ready for production.
