One of the things I loved most about being a literary agent for eight years was working with authors on revisions, and I’m very excited to get back to those roots.
I can help you with:
- Manuscript editing
- Query critiques
- Partial critiques and consultations
- Developmental editing
- Social media consulting
- Random side projects
- Job offers
- You name it
We can arrange a combination of editing and a consultation call or two (or three) via phone or Skype, depending on what you need.
Contact me at email@example.com if you’re interested. Rates and timing depend on the scope of the project and my availability. I regret that I won’t be able to take on all projects. Oh, and I’m a terrible copyeditor so if you need that you’re much better off elsewhere (and I’d be happy to refer you to someone).
Some of the projects I’ve helped edit in the past include Rock Paper Tiger, named one of Amazon’s Top 100 novels of the year in 2010, and Try Not to Breathe by Jennifer Hubbard, which received starred reviews in Publishers Weekly and Kirkus and for which I provided development feedback.
I realize that not everyone can afford to pay for editing (here are the things to take into account beforehand), and I’ll continue to do public page critiques and blog about broader writing topics.
