Editors are vital to a book’s success. Whether you’re interested in pursuing the traditional route to publication or would like to self-publish, I will work closely with you on creating the best project possible.
While I edit across categories, I specialize in fiction and memoir. As a developmental editor, I provide writers with comprehensive, critical feedback in the form of an extensive editorial letter and follow-up emails, phone calls, and meetings via Skype. I address style and voice, language, characterization, point of view, plot and structure, setting, theme, and dramatic tension. I ask questions throughout the editing and revision process with the hope of starting a lively discussion about the book’s possibilities, and offer writers ideas on how to constructively and creatively approach problems.
I also offer line-edits, proofreading, copyediting, ghostwriting, and assistance with nonfiction book proposals.
