+ My editorial services vary per project, but the most popular, effective, and comprehensive style edit includes the following:
- A full manuscript read;
- A line-for-line close copyedit via Track Changes wherein I provide direct adjustments to the text, as well as comments, suggestions and questions to convey my "live" experience of reading;
- An analytical/developmental editorial note that works to help shape one's narrative--by way of honing character, plot, tone, pacing, voice, and so on--on the macro level;
- A follow-up correspondence to cover any post-edit issues, ideas or questions.
+ I specialize in literary and commercial fiction, memoir, narrative nonfiction, and poetry. I have worked on several YA, middle grade, and thriller titles, too.
+ I also provide editorial feedback on smaller scale pieces such as query letters, synopses, essays, and articles.
+ Industry consultation services (for instance, guidance on agency/publisher selection and submission protocol) are available as well.
+ Rates upon request. Please contact me with an introduction to your project; please include current word count and desired turnaround time.
