“Re-Visioning” Your Work

Story Development + Copyediting + Proofreading + Beta Reading

Philosophy

I believe that your writing should communicate your message. That changes based on your genre, audience and style but my job is to help you hone your voice and correct errors in service of your work. I collaborate with you to find the best fixes for your story and your writing. 

In addition to standard editing and proofreading I specialize in developmental editing, which includes helping resolve issues in story structure, and character development as well as finding solutions to plot holes.

Currently Accepting: Manuscripts in romance (historical, contemporary, erotica of all kinds), historical fiction and general fiction. I am also able to copy edit or proofread non-fiction, academic, and technical work.

Draft Development

Services to help authors plot, outline, and draft their stories.

Story Sessions

Customizable hour sessions to focus on a variety of story craft needs. Useful for brainstorming, plot hole repair or even just some motivation to meet your goals!
$45/hr

Beta Reading

Reading a first or second draft to give feedback on character development, plot, story structure, dialogue, and general clarity. Some proofreading included, though this is not the focus.
$1/pg

Outlining

Working with an author to structure an outline and plot a story. Strengthening character development through conflict, and resolving plot holes or problems.

Developmental Editing

A combination of beta reading and outlining, my developmental editing services offer brainstorming and outlining assistance during the pre-writing process, beta reading and feedback during the process, as well as some line, copy editing and proofreading, though these are not the focus of the service. I work with writers during the entire drafting phase to finish the novel. Price is a package based on the level of work discussed between the client and me.
Please inquire about a package that would best serve you!
