$497 The Editing Appetizer Package includes:

  • A high-level Manuscript Evaluation of 30 pages of your MS

Are you thinking about having your manuscript professionally edited?  This package is for people who have written a manuscript and are searching for a professional editor to help them get it publication-ready.

The editor-author relationship is important. It can cost thousands of dollars to get your manuscript professionally edited and your reputation is on the line. You want to make sure your editor respects your voice, understands your philosophy, and is willing and able to apply a terrific set of tools to the intricate task of polishing your book so you can shine in its full light.

Am I aligned with your goals? To help you decide, I offer prospective clients an “Editing Appetizer” so they can test drive my editing services. With this package, I will consult with you about your book and provide a high-level evaluation of 30 pages of your manuscript to give you some suggestions on what’s great, what’s missing and how you can engage your audience in ever more powerful ways.

You’ll also get a copy of my traditionally-published writer’s manual, “The Write Way.” This book will help you better organize and strengthen your writing, giving you a vast range of “insider’s secrets” that I’ve culled from my decades as a professional writer and editor.

We all recognize that writing is a creative process but we also tend to think of the physical process of writing as a mechanical skill that takes good grammar and a decent vocabulary and somehow blends them all together to create clear communication. That’s not a bad start but decades of experience have taught me that writing with impact is much more complex. Care to know more about what that looks like? Then you need to read The Write Way!

The Write Way provides tips on how to:
– Structure your written work
– Write with style
– Write to engage an audience
– Avoid and overcome writer’s block
– Write with marketing in mind

This package will give you greater confidence in your ability to write powerfully and fluidly ad help you move forward with your writing.

It takes just a few minutes to enroll — ready? Or do you need to speak with me about it first? Either way, I would love to support you on your journey to becoming a published author!
