Book Editing and Author Services

Helping authors get published is the mission of my book editing business. From idea to publication, I provide honest and experienced advice, pushing authors to go deeper and to write more clearly and profoundly. I am also exacting when it comes to error-free prose and am happy to get out the red pen to make sure every last comma is in its right place. Whatever your publishing goals, I can help get your finished manuscript to agents or through the self-publishing process. 

Book Design & Distribution

I work with an award-winning book designer who is a genius! From book covers to interior page design and formatting, she will make your book look professional and alluring. After she does her magic, if you are self-publishing, I get your book printed and distributed through Ingram Publishing, who will also make it available online.

I’d love to hear about your project! Hit the “Let’s Create” button to share.


Copywriting that Moves Audiences

Copywriting is the art of meeting your reading audience where they live. Whether your goal is to sell your products or services online, get information to the people who need it, share your story, or be found online, I provide authentic, engaging copy for websites and collateral materials and create solid communications plans to ensure your message reaches the right audiences and moves them to action.

Often this means re-evaluating current copy and redrafting copy so that it better expresses who you are. Or it could simply mean cleaning up the copy you already have—fixing grammatical mistakes, editing sentence structure, and generally finding the best ways to say things in the clearest voice possible.

Then we can take it to the next level by creating a communications plan that offers unique and valuable content to the people that need you most. There’s nothing worse than having a subscriber on your email list that never opens anything you send them! I can help you craft emails that get opened, reports that your audience share, and landing page copy that communicates effectively and authentically.

Branding that Speaks Volumes

You want your brand to express who you are and what you care about in a way that makes your audience feel excited to be working with you.

The words you choose and how you use them are essential in crafting that perfect brand voice.

I build language protocols, word banks, and styles guides that speak directly to my clients’ target demographics across all platforms so that every time your company has something to say, it is said with confidence and received as being totally and authentically you.

I also can use the branding language to write tag lines, mission statements, website copy, marketing copy, newsletters, blog posts, and social media posts.

Eagle-Eye Editing

I’m a total word nerd at heart, and I love my red pen. If you have reports, articles, books, or any other written material that needs the help of an obsessive compulsive editor, I’m your girl!

I am well-versed in all the style guides and can help develop style protocol for those who don’t have one yet. Commas will be in the correct places and semicolons too! Quick turn-around!
