First, we’ll talk about your book. Let me know the genre, length, stage of development, and any deadlines. Is it an early draft or polished? If I have an upcoming opening, I’ll then review the first 1,000 words of your manuscript free of charge and let you know if I’m able to help or suggest a different level of editing. That way, we can see if we’re a good fit.
I particularly like to work on romance novels, especially paranormal, contemporary, romantic comedy, and suspense.
My credentials: I’ve been writing and editing for 25 years, both in fiction and nonfiction. I’ve published over forty books, mostly paranormal and contemporary romance. I received a graduate degree in English and American Literature from Harvard University’s School of Extension Studies and undergraduate degrees in both comparative literature and psychology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Since 2013, I’ve worked with many authors to improve their manuscripts. Currently, I copy edit for a small publisher.
My focus is on grammar, spelling, and punctuation. If I note story issues, I’ll point it out, but this isn’t a content or developmental edit.
