I provide a full range of editing services for the narrative (story) writer. Whether your story is real, fictional, or fantastical, you will find I’m as dedicated as you are to developing your best story. I love coaching and nearly every edit I suggest will have a comment explaining why it’s needed. Or I’ll give you several suggestions how to fix a problem so you can pick the one that feels most like “you.”

If you’re not sure what a service includes, click the link for a full post about it, or ask your questions when you request a quote. I can also mix and match services to provide the best package for you.

* There is a “combo” developmental consultation that works out as a $200/month for 5-7 months (depending on the length of the manuscript you are writing). It includes unlimited email consultation, up to 10,000 words of structural editing each month (“as-you-go”) and up to 4 hours of live Zoom brainstorming or addressing your particular writing challenges. The cost essentially works out to be the same as an all-at-once developmental edit, but payments and services are broken up over several months for affordability and time management for the author who may not yet be fully confident in their project.
