Ever wonder if your manuscript is ready for publication? Want to find out how much editing your draft requires? You'll receive a comprehensive evaluation of your story's overall structure, plot elements, and characters, so that you can devote your time efficiently in revisions.
Need that final polish before sending your story off for publication? I'll go through your manuscript line by line to correct grammar and consistency errors, adjust word choice for clarity, and arrange sentences and paragraph breaks to make each passage and chapter compelling.
"I have been writing on and off for most of my life. Recently, I decided to take it seriously and once I thought I was close to my final draft of my manuscript, I searched for a developmental editor. I feel so lucky that I choose Amy, a true professional in every sense of the word. She did an amazing job helping me to improve my work with brilliant suggestions. No matter what stage you are in your writing, she will lift up your work in a positive, supportive environment. She has my highest recommendation."
— Mark Christopher, VP at NewsCorp & first-time author

A Wordsmith to Suit Your Talents
It's important to me to let your artistic vision and voice shine through.
All writing can be broken down as small pieces of a larger whole, much like the pieces of a puzzle. As the author, it's up to you to figure out what the design on the front of the puzzle box will be—what your story is, what it will become. As the editor, it is my job to recognize how the parts of your writing can best come together to achieve that ultimate design.
I have several different services, flexible enough to suit your storytelling needs. With just one email, you can find an editor who will elevate your book.
