Service List

I am open to projects of various length – longer word counts/full manuscripts and shorter projects such as novellas and category length novels. I specialize in romance, women’s fiction, mystery, thrillers and YA. All payments are made via Paypal.

Career Consulting

You can hire me at a half-hourly or hourly rate to help in any way I can with your writing career. Need to talk about where you want your career to go, what direction to take a particular ms, brainstorming book ideas, talking marketing and publicity strategies – the options are endless! I’ve spent the last decade on the inside of one of the biggest publishing houses, and I can put that experience to use for you.

Query Critiques 

I will read your first 3 chapters and synopsis and will edit your query letter.
+For an additional fee I will also line edit your first 3 chapters
+For an additional fee I will line edit your first 3 chapters and provide a 60-minute phone call to discuss your work

Pre-Editorial Evaluation

In order to determine which of my services you might require, and if we are a good fit, I will need to read your first 3 chapters. I charge a nominal fee for this, and if you decide to continue with my services, this fee will be credited to your final bill. You can also add on a consultation phone call for a full overview of your editorial needs.  (Not applicable to Query Critiques.)

Partial Manuscript Evaluation

I will read a partial of your manuscript, and will advise on direction, pacing, characters, etc. in either a detailed editorial letter or phone call. This does not include line editing!

Full Manuscript Evaluation

Read the entire ms and provide a detailed editorial letter and/or phone call to discuss plot, pacing, characters, etc. This does not include line editing!

Developmental Edit

This is the kind of edit I most love doing, where I look at character and plot development, pacing, etc. This would be done via Track Changes, and include line editing and comments within the ms, along with a complete editorial letter.

Proofread

If you have already been through a developmental edit and are ready to self publish or submit to agents, an extra set of eyes on your work to catch typos and other mistakes is important.
