AUTHORS & ILLUSTRATORS
I offer a range of services to authors and illustrators at all phases of their career. Whether you want to prepare your project to publish independently, or for submission to agents and traditional publishers, I can help. Fees vary according to the length or complexity of the project. Have a question or don’t see what you need here? Contact me and we’ll find a solution.
Quick Read/Manuscript Critique
A one to three page letter will give you a general overview of how elements of your manuscript are working, including thoughts on the overall story, characters, setting, plot and pacing. Picture book assessments offer guidance on honing langauge and format-specific concerns.
A relatively in-depth editorial letter, coupled with some concise manuscript annotations, will guide you through revision. If you are an author/illustrator, I will also look at your dummy and offer suggestions to improve the visual narrative, layout and presentation.
I can help you craft or rework a submission letter or query, and help you put together a compelling submission package for your novel or picture book project.
Coaching, Consultation, Book Doctoring, or “Bespoke” Editing
If you have editorial needs, including a more hands-on approach to reworking your manuscript, or a schedule of assignments and check-ins to help you complete your project, email me and we can find a way to work together.
