Editing and Writer Services

Need help polishing up your story? The  preferred method is to get a beta-read, a thorough content or line edit, and then a proofread. This is done best when you use a different person for each job! Not sure what kind of editor do you need? Check out this blog post for help!

I  am a USA Today bestselling author. My debut novel, Sanctuary won First Place in the Readers’ Favorite Award for best YA Horror Novel, and Chronicles of Steele: Raven won the Grace Award for best Speculative Fiction. I’ve edited novels that have gone on to win awards and become bestsellers, as well. Additionally, I have worked as a judge for two awards, The Inspy and the ACFW Genesis Award. If you’re considering submitting a story for an award, I can help you put your best foot forward!

 What I offer:

Writer Coaching/Developmental Editing: You know you’re a good storyteller, but you also admit your craft is weak. If you've already published, and are subject to low reviews, this is the option for you. We will go through your writing and help make it stronger. I will teach you methods to use that will help keep those bad reviews away. Cost: .010/word. Turnaround Time: 3-4 weeks depending on length.

Content and Line Editing: For manuscripts which have already undergone critiquing or beta read. Here, I will check for spelling, grammar, punctuation, repetitive wording, characterization, continuity, weaknesses in plot, eliminating confusing tense or POV changes/head-hopping, help you choose stronger wording, and give you a detailed critique. Cost: .006/word. Turnaround Time: 2-3 weeks depending on length.

Proofreading: Once line edits are complete, it’s time for a finishing proofread. This is the last sweep-through to catch misused words, punctuation, spelling, and grammar that may have been missed or added with editing corrections. Cost: .004/word. Turnaround Time: 1-2 weeks depending on length.

Full Editorial Critiques: If you just want me to read your book and give you overall impressions, here you will get suggestions and comments throughout your document using track changes as well as a summary which will include where you can improve: Your plot: Is it strong? Any plot holes? Were your characters realistic and relatable? How was the pacing? Did it flow? Or too fast /too slow? Did the dialogue work? Realistic? Forced? What made the story work? Any suggestions? Cost: $40/20,000 words. Turnaround Time: about a week or two depending on length.
