It never hurts to have a second set of eyes on your writing, and when you write for a living, you soon discover that editorial services aren’t just a worst-case scenario – even the very best pieces of writing can be improved. As an editor, my job is to help your work become the best it can possibly be. I polish the rough edges until they shine.
If you’ve looked for editorial services before, you’ll know that there’s some confusion in the industry about what exactly ‘editorial services’ entails. Some editors will check your whole manuscript against the Chicago Manual of Style and checklist the very basic mechanical errors that all authors make. Others will go through your work and cross out every adjective. Some editors will look at the whole of your story and make sweeping decisions about plot and characters. I offer all three of these services, and many more.
