As the saying goes,

Write Drunk, Edit Sober.

EDITORIAL SERVICES

for Self-Publishing Authors…

Need help with the broad strokes such as plot or character?

Line & Copy EDITING

Want line-by-line feedback on flow and style?

CRUSH SELF-DOUBT AND PUBLISH WITH CONFIDENCE

Some indie authors face imposter syndrome and self-doubt. That’s why I provide feedback in a way that gives them the confidence to release their books into the world. Partnering with an editor can be intimidating at first, but my clients work with me because I make it feel good. I’m a cheerleader; I do what I do to inspire and make an impact.
