Developmental and Copyediting
I do big picture development for partial or completed manuscripts, and detailed editing for self-publishing.
Contact me for free one-chapter trial so we can both get an idea if we want to move forward.
Or you can hire me for $75/hour to brainstorm, read, or help guide you forward.
This is an ten-week long service where I help authors who are stuck in the middle of a book or who have never written a book before and need help figuring out shape and motivation.
I give daily texts as a “kick in the pants,” weekly video chats, and detailed editorial advice.
