You've worked hard on your book, and you want it to be the best it can be. Maybe you've self-edited your book but you have questions: Do my characters inspire an emotional reaction? Is my story clear? Are there any plot holes? Can my writing be tightened?
That's where an editor comes in.
Hi, I'm Linda. As a copyeditor since 2014 and a literary judge of over 2,000 short screenplays, stories, and books for NYC Midnight, Writer’s DigestSelf-Published Book & E-book Awards, Saugus Union School District (PTA Reflections), and the Writer’s Digest Poem-a-Day Challenge, I understand the most common writing tendencies of new and even experienced writers—and how to work with you to sharpen your content while maintaining your distinct voice. If you're not quite ready to have your book published, I can work with you on sample chapters as a coach to help strengthen your writing.
But my experience includes more than just book editing and judging. I've also been editing content marketing for nearly four years for such businesses as well-known athletic footwear companies, addiction centers, and law firms. My experience includes Chicago, AP, and house styles.
I'd be happy to complete a sample edit to see if we are a good fit. And be sure to ask about my new subscription services—I'm available for monthly on-call hours.
