Straightforward Edits

You may have written a brilliant novel, a shining academic paper, an illuminating short story, or an insightful nonfiction piece.

That’s what everyone who has read it tells you. You’re really proud of what you’ve accomplished—and you should be!

Even if you’re an English major, a business executive, or a previously published author, however, you may have missed something. A word. An overused phrase. Some extra punctuation.

What can I do for you?

As writers, we’ve all heard of “seeing with new eyes.” If you’ve set your work aside for a few days, weeks, or even months, you may have caught an error or two. If you’re not absolutely positive that your piece is the best it can be, you’ve come to the right place.

I’ve edited everything from literary fiction, nonfiction, and academic and business websites in my twenty years as an editor. In my work and in my life, I’m known as a no-BS person. I will tell you what I see—the good, the bad, and the ugly. I won’t pat your head and say you’ve written a masterpiece, but I WILL tell you about your strong points both in your piece and as a writer.
