To my developmental editor, Tiffany Yates Martin—thank you over and over again for your patience and hard work. This was a fun one, wasn’t it? I’m always so eager and grateful for your insights and guidance. I love seeing a manuscript transform into a novel as we work together through the editing process.
Your Voice. Your Vision.
Writing is a solitary process. When you’re writing your first draft—or second, or fifteenth—often you have only your own impressions of the work. Like standing in the lobby of a high-rise building, you can’t see the whole structure unless you step outside and get some distance. Working with a professional editor can give you that objective distance, and help make your manuscript as polished as it can be, technically and stylistically.
Telling a story is about your voice; a good edit should enhance it, not alter it. I ask the right questions to help you find the best version of your vision—to help you fulfill your intention and make sure the story in your head is the one on the page. I also offer line editing services, so your prose is as polished as your story.
