An Invitation to Authors

Hello there!

Before you read any further, let me say up front that I simply love working with authors.

I have several clients who are in the process of self-publishing right now, including a best-selling mystery writer and a first-time young adult author. Beyond editing, I can help with query letters to agents or publishers, or, if you self-publish, other guidance you may need     (e.g., work on the cover copy). One of my self-publishing clients recently made it onto the Boston Globe's bestseller list. 

I have experience working with a very wide range of subjects and genres. From wedding disasters and gluten-free cooking to property investment and intercultural studies, it seems like I've edited it all. One summer I even proofread some Star Wars books for Random House. So many genres interest me, and I really enjoy helping authors polish their work.

In addition to hands-on editing, I also evaluate manuscripts for one of the country's largest self-publishing firms. Those authors need initial feedback at an early draft stage (i.e., before they are ready for the book to be edited or proofread), so that's another service I could offer directly to you. 

To get started, please let me know what kind of guidance you are looking for and what your time frame might be. It would be great to see some samples of your work. Then I could email back my initial sense of how we might proceed, or we could chat by phone.

I look forward to working with you
