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.

I am an agented, published author. I was awarded the Glenn Balch Award for fiction and The Stephen R Kustra Fellowship for creative writing.

That Night on the Bayou was traditionally published with great reviews. 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.

I do a very detailed analysis and work with authors to develop their manuscripts deeply, moving from global to scene level. 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. May be combined with developmental edit for a significant discount.
