Editing


We all have something to say—a unique contribution to the world.

.

Print. eBooks. Articles. Blogs.

 

If you have a writing project and have a dream of publishing, I can work with you to make that dream a reality.

That’s what I do. I help people turn their ideas and stories into publishable books.

All it takes is passion, determination, and commitment.

I worked with Robert Kull to edit his manuscript and get it published as Solitude: Seeking Wisdom in Extremes (New World Library, 2009). Find out how I can do the same for you.

If you have a manuscript you want to turn into a book, I encourage you to follow your vision.

First step, contact me. You will benefit from my years of experience as a professional editor. I will help you shape the flow and structure of your book, working closely with you until your writing “sings”—making sure it is clear, concise, and communicates exactly what you want to say.

After the initial edit of a manuscript, authors have the option to continue working with me on a monthly retainer as a writing coach to help them polish and refine the book, and to prepare a targeted book proposal.

Or, if you don’t yet have a completed manuscript, and want to start writing your book, I can work with you to turn your ideas or story into a publishable manuscript.

I give you regular chapter-by-chapter feedback aimed at taking your writing to the next level. We will work together on polishing your literary gems till they shine, capturing and holding your readers’ attention.

Next, I work with you to prepare a first-class book proposal—including key messages, synopsis, and pitch letter.

After working with you to prepare your book proposal, I send it to selected publishers, and negotiate the most favorable contract—including advance, royalties, film and foreign rights.

When it comes to finding a good publisher, my services as a literary agent are based on a typical 15% commission.

If you have a manuscript you want to turn into a publishable book, and wish to work with a first-class editor and writing coach, contact me.

I work with a limited number of first-time authors who are passionate about getting published and who have the potential and determination to make it happen.
