One of the best things about being a freelance editor is the range of books and authors I get to work with, so I don’t like to draw too many hard distinctions about what kinds of projects I take. I specialize in literary fiction, but I also love genre crossover fiction as well. On the nonfiction side, I work on memoir, biography, history, science, and various kinds of practical nonfiction, and I can edit both proposals and full manuscripts. I am generally not the right editor for YA or inspirational fiction and nonfiction.
I am comfortable working with authors at every part of the publishing process. Whether you've got a rough first draft and want help getting the major moving parts of a novel to fit together, or you need an in-depth line edit to put on the finishing touches before publication, I can help you to come up with an editorial package that makes sense for your book.
In addition to editorial services, I also consult with authors on how best to navigate the publishing process. Publishing can be intimidating and opaque to authors who are approaching it for the first time, and I’m happy to lend my experience to demystify things and help my clients get their books out into the world in the best way possible.
