Content Notes

Although my focus is romance and creative nonfiction, I'm passionate and have experience with many genres. Contact me if you would like to discuss a diverse project. 

Please note, I do not provide the following services: copyediting, sensitivity reads, or query critiques. All in-line manuscript notes are from my perspective as a developmental editor.

New clients:
I might request a sample (10 pages) of your manuscript prior to booking.


You can request a small sample edit (up to 25 pages) for a fee of $75. If you choose to continue with my services, this charge will be credited towards your scheduling fee. If you’d like me to read your previous books as part of the editing package, there will be an additional reading fee of $200 per book.
