I can help!
We’re all too close to our own work to really know when it’s finished.
Nonfiction writing encompasses everything from a memoir to a business book, or a journal article.
Developmental editing nonfiction focuses on structure, organization, clarity, logic, and effectiveness to engage your audience, providing honest feedback to improve the writing for completion.
Let's get your story on track!
The best time to bring in a developmental editor is when you’re ready to take your nonfiction from good to GREAT.
You want to make sure that what’s in your head clearly translated through your fingers and onto the page, but you aren’t quite sure if it did.
You have questions: Is my story on track? Does my story stay consistent from beginning to end?
I’ll review your story and dig into the important elements: the foundation, the voice, tone, and the overall flow.
I’ll provide comprehensive margin notes on all of the major components to guide you through the revisions.
In the end, you’ll have a better understanding of the flow of your story as well as the improvements that will take your story from good to GREAT!
