Editorial Services

I offer a range of editorial services for fiction and nonfiction books. Package deals are available for significant savings. For all services, I will complete a free sample of my work. Testimonials also available! I specialize in most fiction genres, including literary. I am not the best fit for high fantasy.

That Night on the Bayou was traditionally published with great reviews. I have sold two novels; my writing has appeared in various publications, including Lithub, Memoir Magazine, and Coffin Bell Journal. I’ve worked extensively with authors to polish their books, either for self-publication or to query to agents and editors.

  • Developmental editing for fiction manuscripts. This includes an evaluation and recommendations for story arc, character development and arcs, and style. I do a very detailed analysis and work with authors to develop their manuscripts deeply, moving from global to scene level. Pricing for developmental editing ranges from nine to fifteen dollars a page. Please contact me for a quote on your specific project.
  • Line editing for fiction or nonfiction manuscripts. Includes sentence level revision for word choice, structure, grammar, and copyedits. Please contact me for a quote. Pricing generally ranges from seven to ten cents a word. May be combined with developmental edit for a significant discount.
