Making It Easy for Readers to Love Your Book

Fiction editing for romance and erotica authors

You Deserve to Feel Confident in Every Release

Readers have many choices when it comes to their next read, and a lack of editing can turn a potential fan into a disappointed customer.

Don’t let your hard work get lost inside plot holes, typos, and grammatical errors.

“Too many typos!”

“I loved the story, but then the ending ruined it.”

As an author myself, I’ve experienced the frustration of trying to find a good, affordable editor.

I care about your story, and I want to help you make it the best it can be.

Hire an Editor with the Right Credentials

Formal Training

I've completed all the editing coursework for my second bachelor's degree in English.

I've also successfully completed two Gale Education courses—The Keys to Effective Editing and Romance Writing—as well as Shani Raja's Punctuation Mastery course.

Knowledge of Story

I know what makes a good story because I've put years of self-study into learning story structure and specifically, romance story structure.

I've studied the romance market and consumed hundreds of romance novels and erotica stories.

Love of Language

I've always loved the English language and have a natural talent for structuring sentences and paragraphs. As a kid, I used to read the dictionary.

I've refined my natural talents with years of writing and learning.

Choose the Level of Editing to Suit Your Needs

Structural Editing

Is your story working?

I will focus on your story’s overall structure: plot, character, setting, etc. I will provide a one- to two-page critique offering suggestions for improvement.

Copyediting

Will your grammar, punctuation, or sentence structure pull readers out of your story?

I will edit for grammar, style, and word usage using The Chicago Manual of Style, Merriam-Webster's dictionary, and my own expertise.

Proofreading

Did you miss any typos or grammar issues?

I will edit for surface-level mechanics which may have been missed or introduced in copyediting.

All Three Levels

Structural Editing + Copyediting + Proofreading = A High-Quality, Market-Ready Book

How It Works

I provide a free sample edit of up to 3,000 words so you can get a feel for my editing style, and I can get a feel for your story.

2. Decide on a Plan

I take a look at your full manuscript, and you and I decide which level(s) of editing your story needs.

3. Full Edit

I edit your story based on our plan and deliver the edited manuscript.

4. Ready-to-Publish Manuscript

You incorporate the edits, which leaves you with a polished, market-ready book.
