Freelance Writing, Editorial, and Proofreading Services

As an avid reader and book blogger, I have an appreciation for a well-crafted story. Whether your goal is to be published by one of the big New York houses or to self-publish an e-book, I'd like to help you polish your manuscript and make it the best it can possibly be before publication.

Everyone has a story to tell. 

I help you tell yours.  

Writing and Editorial Services

As an avid reader and book blogger with a pulse on the latest publishing and literary trends, my goal is to help you make your manuscript the best it can be prior to publication. I also offer promotional and marketing strategies to connect your book with the right readers. 

Whether you are seeking traditional or self-publication, I can provide writing consultation, (including ghostwriting, if desired), developmental editing, line-editing/proofreading, and literary publicity planning and coordination.

Authors I am currently working with or have recently worked with include: 

Susan Balee (fiction consultation, editing, and development)
Melissa Luznicky Garrett (editor of The Prophecy, (May 2013)

Preferred genres include:
Literary and Contemporary Fiction
Short Story Collections and Anthologies 
Young Adult
Nonfiction - (especially nonprofit management/fundraising, women and girls issues, parenting, autism/special needs, pop culture, social media, business, and politics)

As a member of the Pittsburgh South Writers Group, I am connected with some of the finest writers in western Pennsylvania. In addition, I am a book reviewer for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, as well as a regular contributor to the Portfolio features column, which appears on page 2 of the newspaper. 

I offer sample edits of up to 10 pages of your partial or completed manuscript (Times New Roman, 12 pt., double spaced).  A sample edit helps you to get a sense of my style and whether we are a good fit. It also helps me to understand how much work will likely be involved with your project. Cost = $50.00

I look forward to working with you!
