Developmental Editing and Book Coaching
Writing a book is a lot of work, and as an author, you want to make the best possible use of your time.  As your book coach, I call on both my intuitive gifts and my experience in publishing to help you get to the root of any issues you are encountering in your writing or publication process.  Scroll down for details.
I offer comprehensive editing services for both fiction and non-fiction works of any length in US, Canadian, and UK English.  Whether you plan to publish a series of articles or a full-length book, I can help you create prose that is clear, compelling, and error free.  Scroll down for details.

General Editing Services


As an editor, I deliver your work back to you in its best possible form: flowing, clear and error-free, while still reflecting your unique voice.  I have experience with everything from novels to non-fiction books, articles and blog posts, and can provide samples of previous work upon request.

I formulate a bid for each editing job based on a sample from you of the text I will be working on.  Fees range from $30 per hour for proofreading or light copyediting to $50 per hour for substantive editing or re-writing.  Contact me to request a sample or bid.  I look forward to polishing your words to a fine sheen!

Developmental Editing and Book Coaching

It is ideal to engage the services of a developmental editor and book coach before you even start your writing process, but it can be beneficial at any point.  Developmental editing refers to the overall development and organization of your book, as well as the characters, story line, and pace at which it is told. A developmental editor may suggest the order in which the chapters are presented, as well as the overall content, flow, and arrangement of text.

Working with a developmental editor can save you valuable time by ensuring that you get started in the right direction from the beginning.  Of course drafts are inevitable, but most authors will agree that the fewer of them you have to write, the better!

My fee for Developmental Editing and Book Coaching is $60 per hour.
