You’ve finished your first book, now what? Before you self-publish your masterpiece, selecting an experienced editor is key to ensuring your book is a success. As an editor, I admit the process can be confusing. Just figuring out the type of editor you need can be overwhelming.
That’s where I come in. My editing approach isn’t for everyone. I primarily work with first time authors, specifically in the self-help or personal development genres who are looking for a hands-on editor who will also provide honest feedback and suggestions.
A lot of my editing style will vary based on your specific goals for your book. I specialize in creating powerful introductions, ensuring a consistent tone, and using the right words to create the best experience for your reader. I also will identify strategic places to incorporate call to actions that support your professional goals (e.g., building an email list or getting Facebook followers).
So, what’s it like to work with me as an editor? First things first, I will look over your manuscript so I can provide you with an accurate timeframe for completion and fixed-rate pricing based on your word count. If you’d like to move forward with editing, we can discuss the specific details about your book (audience demographics, goals for the book, etc.) and go from there.
In the end, you will have a marketable, engaging book your reader can relate to. You will also receive a developmental report identifying strengths and weaknesses within your book and areas for improvement so you know exactly what to do next.
If you’d like to get in touch, I’d love to discuss your particular editing needs further.
