As a writer, I understand the frustration that comes with polishing and perfecting prose. No matter how many times you revise and edit your own work, there is a point at which you need to hand it over to an editor for those final revisions. An editor can review your work objectively and make suggestions to help bring your work to the next level.
As your editor, I deliver professional and reliable service for all of your needs. Contact me for an evalution or to see if we can work together to polish your prose to perfection.

This is an overall edit of the manuscript for clarity, content, structure and overall tone. It may involve restructuring or rewriting. I will look at:
* Does it all fit together into a coherent whole?
* Is the order of presentation logical (from the target audience’s point of view)?
* Is all the necessary information included, and unnecessary information deleted?
* Clear, logical development of ideas
* Use of jargon
I provide a summary report about the content, structure and tone of the manuscript, plus suggested changes to improve the work.
The substantive edit is perfect for first drafts and works-in-progress. I can provide validation of what works within the manuscript and guidance as to the areas for improvement within the work. The report provided will help to guide revisions and polish the manuscript. This review also includes a one hour phone review to discuss my recommendations.
**Please note that this is not a copy editing review though I may note recurring grammar, spelling and sentence structure issues found. If you are looking for a copy edit of your manuscript, please contact me and I can recommendation someone specializing in copy editing.
