I offer copy editing for all types of manuscripts. I have experience editing a wide range of genres from non-fiction to children's books to adult erotica. I have formal training as a copy editor and have worked extensively with the industry standard Chicago Manual of Style.
Your edit will include suggestions for:
grammar, punctuation, and spelling
tense and voice
word choice and clarity
pacing and flow
basic fact checking
I'm also happy to look at any
other aspects that you are concerned about and will always
offer gently worded but honest feedback.
I am American, but I am very familiar with British English spelling and punctuation. Manuscripts by non-native English writers are always welcome.
How Edits Are Made Unless you request otherwise, all edits are done via Track Changes, so you will be able to clearly see all suggested changes. Queries are made via comments.
Book Formatting I have studied book design, and visual formatting (design of text and page formatting, not file conversion) of primarily text-only manuscripts is included on request.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and I greatly look forward to working with you!

Frequently Asked Questions
Can you rewrite (or write) my manuscript?
I have studied story and writing, but I leave the writing to the writers. I work with completed manuscripts and do not write or rewrite beyond repairing sentence structure. For those looking for assistance in developing your manuscripts, check out some of Fiverr's wonderful ghost writers.
