Helping You
Refine Your Manuscript
One Word At A Time


Helping indie authors bring their best story forward.

Transitioning stories from your imagination onto the page tends to be a solo mission. No one can see the story through from idea to fruition except for you.

Refining the story and bringing the best version of it to the reader has always been a team effort.

Regardless of where you are on your writing journey, I'm here to help you get the best version of your story onto the page and into readers' hands.​

My Core Values


This is a solo-run editorial company. You can trust that the person you're talking to is the only one handling your manuscript. I will always be easily reachable, responsive, and available throughout the entire process.


Every manuscript is approached with a clear mind and fresh eyes from start to finish. I bring all of my expertise to the table for every service. Regardless of the service, attention to detail is never sacrificed.


Delivered on time every time. You've got a timeline and I'm never going to be part of the reason it's held up. Deadlines will always be discussed and set up realistically to ensure quality service.


Because I don't believe in compromising quality for cost, and I don't believe quality should break the bank. Service prices are not only aligned with industry-standard but I offer tailored payment plans for every service.

Some  ways I can support you

Manuscript Evaluation

$0.01 per word

A thorough read-through of your manuscript aimed at diagnosing its strengths, weaknesses, and identifying areas of need on a big-picture scale.

This involves annotating your manuscript as needed and returning it with a full Editorial Report that contains feedback on every story element, actionable suggestions, and a revision plan as needed.

Beta Read

$150 - $250

The lightest form of editorial review.

I'll be reading your manuscript through the lens of a reader and editor, and deliver a full Reader Report that addresses genre-specific concerns, concerns specific to your manuscript, and overall impression of your work. Think of it as a super thorough book report.

Copy Edit

$0.02 per word

Passing a fine-tooth comb through your work, I'll be looking at your work on a line by line, word by word basis to ensure consistency across the board. 

I'll create a customized stylesheet that honors your story and unique writing voice, and provide a refined copy of your manuscript.

My Process

Here's What You Can Expect

Initial Introduction

Stop By & Say Hey

To begin this partnership is easy. Fill out the contact form below with all of the required information and I'll get back to you in two business days to request any extra details and a sample size of your work.

The Exchange

The Sample Edit

When I request a sample of your work, I'll perform the desired service on the sample and return it to you within one business day.

This will display how I annotate manuscripts, and what you can expect of my work, and allow you to measure if my work matches the needs and expectations of your manuscript.

30 - 45 min

Commitment Free

The Author-Editor relationship is a partnership. 

We'll talk in-depth about your manuscript, where it currently stands, and your overall goal. I'll ask about your publishing intentions, your target audience, and your vision for the work.

This is where you'll get to ask me questions, too.

Lay Out The Details

Intentions and Expectations

When you're ready to commit to our partnership, we'll finalize the administrative details.

This covers the exchange of the contract, the invoice and payment options, turnover date, and deadlines. 

To secure your editing slot, a 25% deposit is required.

The Drop-off

Handled With Care

With your editing slot locked in, you'll drop your manuscript into my inbox on the agreed turnover date. 

I'll confirm that it has been received and get to work on your manuscript.

A Mini Vacation

For you - From your project

This is the part where you take a break from the project, and refill your creative well in whatever way makes you happy.

Throughout the process, I'll be keeping you informed on the progress via email, and remain easy to reach for anything you need.

The Return

Keeping My Word

Your manuscript will be returned to you on the agreed deadline, by end of business day, and not a day later. 

You receive an email with your manuscript and all components related to the service.

Closing Call

Tying Up Loose Ends

Once you've gone over the returned manuscript and it's components, we'll schedule another chat, if needed, to talk about absolutely anything you need to help you get started on the next step.
