Life Coaching

I will work with your manuscript in MS Word using the Track Changes feature. Every single fix I suggest can be accepted or rejected by you. I take the time to understand and recognize your writer’s voice, so my editing won’t cleanse “you” from the work. If anything, it will help uncover your true voice that may be weighed down under the errors I usually find.

I’m also really empathetic and kind so if you’re also a thin-skinned creative type like I am, you’ll be in good hands.  Your work is confidential and will never be shared in any way.  Your pen names will never be disclosed and I’m happy to sign an NDA for any author I work with.

Proofreading / Copy Editing

In the basic proofreading step, I will:
• Find any mis-spelled words, including homophones (which spell-checkers miss)
• Standardize capitalization
• Correct punctuation
• Correct factual inconsistencies
• Ensure references within the work are consistent
• … and more!

Developmental Editing / Re-writing

When copyediting, I will:

  • Correct subject-verb agreement
  • Fix repetitive word use
  • Strengthen verbs
  • Reduce overuse of common qualifiers such as “very” and “really”
  • Question overuse of adverbs
  • Find plot holes
  • Re-structure confusing sentences
  • Ensure dialogue exchanges are clear
  • Correct weak characterization
  • … and more!

Beta Reading

When beta reading, I will:

  • Read your entire manuscript and return a one-page report regarding plot holes, inconsistencies and story strengths and weaknesses. I specialize in the romance genre. I will also fix any glaring typos and grammatical errors that I find while reading but won’t perform a full line edit.
