Hi there! I’m a freelance editor who loves working with Indie Authors! 🙂 (I’m also an Indie Author myself.) My goal is to help you strengthen the story YOU want to tell. Revisions can be tough and overwhelming at times, but I’m here to get your book publish-ready. My general vibe as an editor is all about praising the parts of the story that are already amazing while simultaneously giving you specific, pinpointed, and detailed critique to fix the rough patches. I want you to come out of edits with me feeling empowered and excited for your book baby! I’m here to guide your story, hype you up, and cheer you on.
Here’s what I do for DEVELOPMENTAL EDITS: a developmental edit addresses your story as a whole. It tackles the big-picture issues. This edit includes feedback on the pacing, the flow & order of the scenes, the characterization of the cast of characters, the themes, any plot holes, what should be kept or cut from the manuscript, what is & isn’t working, and any other larger adjustments to the overall story arc. The goal of this edit to help you create the strongest possible version of your story. My process involves leaving comments along the sidebar of the manuscript as well as writing an in-depth report of my overall thoughts of the book.
Here’s what I do for LINE EDITS: a line edit focuses on the sentence and paragraph level of revisions. This edit doesn’t focus on changing the story. We will get nit-picky with word choice, sentence flow, and sentence/paragraph structure. The goal of this edit is to produce a manuscript that reads well, with prose that make sense. My process involves using track changes in a Word Doc (or the suggestion function in Google Docs) to do in-line edits.
I always offer a sample edit of CH 1 of your manuscript for FREE! That’s super important to me because I want my clients to feel like I’m the right choice for their book baby before they commit to anything. Feel free to reach out for a sample edit at any time, no strings attached.
I can’t wait to work with you! 🙂 <3
