Why spend extra time on the learning curve of editing, publishing and design, when I can do that, and you can focus on your writing?

I will help you go from final draft to final book – a manuscript and cover suitable for uploading to Amazon Kindle or Smashwords.

I specialize in short fiction & novels, but am qualified to work with non-fiction as well; I have written, edited and published in 14 genres, myself.

My services include any or all of the following:

Copyediting/Line Editing.
Ensuring good syntax, punctuation, grammar, and diction.

Checking the final proof and correcting it for typos, placement of hyphenation, widow and orphan text, continuity in spelling and references in the style, grammatical errors.

Developmental/Content Editing.
Ensuring the readability of the manuscript – that dialogue is authentic, plotting is coherent, and setting is well-suited to the genre and style established.

Providing a clean manuscript for eBook publication, with proper front and back matter, free of extraneous coding found in word processing programs, saved in DOC and RTF formats.

Cover Design.
Creation of a striking, pertinent cover that “pops”–catches the eye. The cover is often the first selling-point for any book, and it’s important for it to incite the reader to look more closely, and move toward purchase. Copies of the cover will be provided in original, layered PSD, flattened PNG and JPG formats, in 4 sizes.
