My editing experience includes a wide range of texts, with specific examples listed below. No matter the text, I can analyze it professionally and competently. You can learn more about me for information about my academic background and work experience.
a.k.a first draft reading.
Need someone to take a look at that messy first draft? This service, also sometimes referred to as an “editorial assessment,” will consider your book for its content such as characterization, plot, and style. I will act as an expert reader to confirm that your work is on the right track and provide you with suggestions for improvement on the work’s content before you begin getting that draft ready for publication or submission. I also offer consultation calls after the assessment so we can continue the brainstorming.
LINE EDITING / COPY EDITING
a.k.a “I’m ready to refine.”
Looking for a more detailed edit with suggestions for improvement that consider the whole piece of work and other elements such as characterization, plot points, and flow with some rewrite suggestions? I can provide you with a detailed edit that includes all these elements plus proofreading and an overall assessment on your manuscript.
a.k.a “I’m ready to share my work, but I want one final polish to make sure it’s perfect.”
Almost ready to hit publish on your work? I can make sure that your text is polished and ready to be viewed by the world with a focus on checking for proper grammar, appropriate punctuation, and accurate spelling.
a.k.a “I’m not quite sure what I need – help!”
With knowledge of the publishing industry and editorial expertise, I often offer consultation calls to clients looking for further discussion or brainstorming of their work. Not sure whether self-publication or traditional publishing is the right route for you? I’d love to listen & provide guidance where needed!
