Manuscript Reviews and Professional Assessments

Has your completed manuscript been sitting in a drawer gathering dust? Have you sent it out to agents, editors, and publishing houses repeatedly with no response? Are you considering self-publishing but aren't sure if you're ready? Let a professional publishing house editor tell you how to get your book ready for publication. Each review includes a thorough reading of your completed manuscript, a one-to-two page document highlighting your book's strengths and weaknesses, and a series of customized tips on what to do next. Ready to get started? Purchase your review here, then send me your completed manuscript as an attachment. Turn around time is approximately 10 days. Want additional insight into your review?

Substantive Editing

Are you ready to take your manuscript from good to exceptional? Through my comprehensive editing services, I've helped dozens of aspiring authors, established authors, attorneys, financial professionals, and professional speakers transform their good-enough manuscripts into books far exceeding their expectations. While I am knowledgeable in AP Style, Chicago Manual Style, and APA Style, I believe there is far more to book editing than simple copyediting and proofing for grammar. To me, editing is an art, and I am deeply honored to be able to engage in that art in a way that best suits each manuscript's voice. (For more on my editing philosophy, check out my guest post on Where Writers Win.) Ready to learn more? Read about what each type of editor does with this post from Absolute Love Publishing, and then contact me to learn what I can do for you.
