The world of indie publishing has exploded, providing a seemingly endless catalog of books for readers to choose from. With a computer, a word processing program, and an internet connection, it’s possible for anyone to publish an ebook… but you know it takes more than that to create a book that readers want to read. It takes more than that to create a professional product that gets a reader’s attention and keeps them coming back for more.
To stand above the rest of the pack, you need a marketing plan, an eye-catching cover, and professional editing that ensures you’re delivering the best story possible.
I can help with that last part.
You’ve probably spent some time looking for a proofreader or copyeditor, so you know what usually comes next: All the stuff about having experience and editing for best-selling authors and use me because I’m awesome.
And that’s cool. That’s part of the process. It’s all about the wonderful world of marketing. Ugh! Talk about a necessary evil.
Well, sales shtick aside, I happen to think I am pretty darn awesome… and, yes, I’ve edited manuscripts for best-selling authors. But more importantly, I love words, and I love helping authors provide the best stories possible for their readers. You know that old saying, ‘do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life’? That’s me.
So, now we’re getting down to it. The big question circling around in your head like a tiger circling its prey—What can I do for you?
To assist you on your path to publishing (regardless of whether this is your first book or your thousandth), I offer three levels of editing services, depending on what you need.
You’ve gone through your manuscript yourself and cleaned it up a bit and now you’re ready to let a professional editor take a look at it.
You dictated your story using Dragon NaturallySpeaking (or some other speech-to-text program) and now you’re ready for someone to clean up the text.
You’ve had your manuscript edited and just need another set of eyes on it to make sure it’s the best that it can be.
