Maybe your dream is to be a published author. Maybe you have already published a book before. No matter your past experiences, if you have a manuscript that you want to take to the next level, you are in the right place. Together we will work to transform your book into its best version — one that you love and are ready to publish.
FOCUSING ON YOU
My editing services are tailored to where you are in the writing process. Based on the current state of your manuscript, you will benefit from either developmental editing or copy editing. I also provide a specialized service — sensitivity editing — which is for those who are writing about or for Indigenous people or communities.
You have written your book, but something is not quite right just yet. Conducting a developmental edit on your book is the perfect way to help identify what might be missing and ensure your manuscript reaches its fullest potential. This type of editing ensures the organization, structure, and flow of your manuscript is perfect for your target audience. It also helps ensure that your intended message comes across and that the purpose of the book is achieved.
You have written a manuscript that is about an Indigenous person, group, or community with an important message to tell. You know that this is an important topic to cover, but you want to make sure you do it in a respectful and accurate way. It is important to hire an Indigenous editor, such as myself, to help with this process. Conducting a sensitivity edit helps to ensure proper representation of Indigenous people and communities, while ensuring style principles and best practices are followed.
You have proudly written your book, but you need another set of eyes to make sure it is perfected and polished before you submit it for publishing. Conducting a copy edit on your book helps to find any pesky errors in grammar, spelling, or syntax that are remaining. It ensures your writing is correct, accurate, and consistent throughout so that you are submitting the absolute best version of your book.
