You have a story to tell.
I delight in bringing to market the most polished, unputdownable version of your manuscript.
When readers purchase your book, they’re hoping for a good story. They expect you’ll take them on a journey they can lose themselves in, with well-drawn, dynamic characters they’ll fall in love with. Whether your romance is steamy or sweet, dark or comedic, your readers want an adventure. They want to feel. They might even hope to learn something. Your job is to not disappoint – or better, to blow them away. It is that brand of satisfaction that earns the five-star reviews, the five-figure (and greater) incomes, and loyal fans eagerly waiting for what comes next.
The quality of your latest book is the best marketing for your next book. So how do you know if you’ve written a quality book? A professional book editor is plugged in to the industry daily. She knows what readers are buying now – and errors don’t sell. Her eagle eye catches mistakes, large and small, that could ruin the moment and pull the reader out of the story. Typos are jarring and unprofessional. Story-level inconsistencies sound alarms in readers’ minds. An amateur love story won’t elicit the yearning in readers that compels them to turn pages. Paired with forgettable writing, it won’t sell.
I like to approach a writer’s endeavor for what it is: your business, as well as your art. An investment in quality romance novel editing is for you, the writer who’s gotten this far and isn’t about to stop already. It’s for your characters, the ones who keep you up at night, urging you to pen their stories. Most importantly, it’s for your readers: those persnickety creatures who buy your books, sustaining you, trusting you’ll deliver a powerful story.
Need a book editor or writing coach? I want to know about your story. Contact me with a 1,000-word sample of your work and I will respond within one business day. A phone call isn’t mandatory, but I do recommend it so we can get to know each other. Your readers deserve the best from you: a polished, unputdownable romance. Let’s delight your audience with a love story that makes them swoon and realizes their greatest desires.
Not writing a romance novel? Each year I select a handful of projects in other genres, especially women’s fiction, fantasy, and memoir.
