Substantive & Line Editing
FOR YOUR MEMOIR
You have completed the first, or maybe the second or third, draft of your memoir. You have tinkered with your own words for so long that you can no longer tell what reads well and what doesn't. You need an outside reader--but not just any reader. Someone attuned to both the elements of story and the power of prose.

The power of prose:
I edit with both a logical mind and a poetic mind. I am attuned to the meaning and the music of language—the sound and rhythm of your words and sentences. The edited manuscript will sound just like you. It will sing!
FOR YOUR NONFICTION BOOK
You have written a nonfiction book on a subject you care about. You are reasonably satisfied with the structure, but you want to ensure that your argument is persuasive, your paragraphs cohesive, your sentences well constructed, and your words well chosen.
A substantive and line edit ensures that your book is not only informative but enjoyable for readers.
