I've been editing manuscripts long before I ever wrote my first one. I started editing for private individuals, then as an intern at the agency, and finally as an agent. I've had the privileged of editing some of my favorite stories. Then there was that one time I edited a 600 page conspiracy theory. Don't ask.
The point is, I've been editing for a long time, but I've never really hung my shingle and offered up my services. But the thing is, I really love editing. There's something magical about taking a precious story that another author has created and helping them mold it into a gleaming pearl of awesomeness. It makes me happy. And I miss it.
So, now I'm going to do what makes me happy. I'm officially offering my services for editing manuscripts. Not as a random thing I sometimes do for friends. Not as a literary agent. This time I'm doing it as an author who wants to help other authors polish their gems.
If you aren't an author, then this is kind of a non-exciting blog post. Sorry about that. I promise I will have way more exciting things for you after the new year. :)
If you are an author and you happen to be in the market for an editor, you can check out what I have to offer over on my Editing Services page. I've got my rates and services listed there for all your viewing glory.
Still with me?
If you're still reading, I have to assume you're at least moderately intrigued by the idea of having me edit your book. Congrats on making it this far. To celebrate the kick off of this new adventure, I'm offering a 15% discount to everyone who books a service with me by the end of 2019. Just mention the code KICKOFF. No, you don't have to actually have your manuscript turned in by then. Just scheduled with the deposit.
I'm now offering affordable editing services for authors and anyone who books with me by the end of the year using the code KICKOFF gets 15% off. But don't wait, because I'll only be taking on a limited number of clients until the end of the year.
