Do you see the book in this photo? This is a print copy of my own novel. Want to get one step closer to holding your own finished novel in your hands?
If so, allow me to be your go-to editor! I have over five years of editing experience and providing detailed feedback to writers. I also have three years of beta reading and ARC reading experience. In short, I spend a lot of time ensuring everyone around me sounds and looks smart! If you’re writing your debut novel or your tenth, I want readers to see your writing style shine.
As a writer myself, I know what it’s like to want feedback on your passion project. I know what it’s like to say “I want to know how to fix things but please consider my ego.” You’ll see in my package descriptions that I respect the kinds of timelines and deadlines you set for yourself and I want to honor those so readers can finally get their hands on your novels.
Being a writer isn’t easy, which is why I am here to help you reach your goals of becoming published—whether you prefer the traditional or self-publishing route.
