I understand your fiction & non-fiction projects.
Whether you've written beat poetry or the next blockbuster screenplay, a lavish, bodice-ripping period romance or a science fiction adventure, I know your form and genre. I know about important things like leaving the dialects alone, preserving your voice and vision, and making sure you retain complete creative control. If you've written non-fiction, be assured I'll be focused on helping you communicate your ideas clearly and concisely, giving you a better, stronger, and perfectly crafted manuscript.
One thing many independent authors don’t invest in is a quality editor. But let me tell you: EDITING IS NOT OPTIONAL.
One of the reasons many authors skip this step is because they just don’t know what they are going to get.
Worries I often hear:
- Will you be mean to me?
- Will you try to change my 'voice' or my vision?
- Will you charge an unreasonable fee?
- My book looks GREAT to me.. so what exactly does a copy editor do and why would I need one?
