Literary / Editorial Services

I offer a full range of writing and editing services, both for corporate clients and individual writers.

For Corporate Clients

With a track record for efficient interaction with the business world, I can provide the following services to business clients:

    • Manuscript assessment and consultation (“book doctoring”)
    • Co-authoring/ghost-writing
    • Research
    • Interviewing
    • Project management and coordination
    • Re-writing
    • Deep editing
    • Line editing
    • Copy editing
    • Proofreading
    • Liaison with publishers.

For Individual Writers

Novelists, short story writers, essayists, poets, and authors of children’s books may focus so closely on the detail of their work that they lose sight of the big picture. This is a common risk for all writers, whether novice or experienced. I can help you regain your perspective. I can provide concise insights into where your manuscript succeeds and where it needs revision. Specific, constructive feedback can take your work to a new level of excellence and eloquence. In addition, I can help you polish your manuscript so that it has the best chances of acceptance for publication.

Here are some of the services I offer to individual writers:

    • Manuscript assessment and consultation (“book doctoring”)
    • Plot/character analysis for novels and short stories
    • Re-writing
    • Deep editing
    • Line editing
    • Copy editing
    • Proofreading
    • Book proposals
    • Query letters.

Please Note

I am not a literary agent or a publisher. I will help you identify your literary strengths and weaknesses, hone your writing skills, and take your manuscript to the highest possible level of excellence. However, I offer no assurance that your work will be accepted for publication. If I believe I can’t improve your work, I will say so before taking on a project, and I will provide this assessment without charge.
