The Edge I Provide You

Here's what makes me different from other freelance editors.

In a nutshell, people who work with me get published. They move on to self-publishing or gain the confidence they need to approach a publishing house, whether the big kind or the small.

The results my clients get from my services turn them into better writers. This isn't because I'm an awesome editor, it's just because I'm attentive and try my hardest to help. Together, I work with my clients almost like a co-writer. My goal is for success -- whether success is determined by saleability, strong and interesting prose, or just simply fully expressing one's self, I'm there with you every step of the way.

Often, when my clients see what I do for them, they're taken aback by the effort and energy I put into the manuscripts given to me. Read more about my free sample edits here.

Confidentiality is usually a given, as without trust there can be no relationship of substance. While I would never replicate or otherwise infringe any of those normal copyright things, I am of course willing to sign any sort of NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) that you might put forth. I've had success with my clients both with and without NDA's, so that part is up to you, but suffice it to say that such a thing is, of course, not a problem.

Finally, there's promotion, which is free and included in the Level 3 Critique Service.

I now offer to help in any way that I can with the promotion of your completed manuscript. This means I will post updates or events regarding your novel on Twitter, Facebook and Linked-In. I'm connected to a variety of writer circles and editor networks, and even have something of a humble following of my own. The more eyes that see the title of your work and the more ears that get word of it's being made available, the better.

In addition, I know the ins and outs of self-publishing, so should you have any questions in that arena I would be glad to offer any assistance. You know what else brings attention to a completed? A review on blogs or websites like Goodreads. I will personally see to this, as I know a pile of people just waiting to read books I recommend and it would certainly form a conflict of interest were I to write it myself.
