Here’s a little bit about me and my editing experience.
I have worked as a journalist and senior journalist for four various rural newspapers in NSW, Australia spanning five years (even won a major industry award for a special edition newspaper that myself and advertising staff produced).
I’m also a published author (although that does seem like a lifetime ago), but my head space is in reading, reviewing along with beta reading and proofing.
I have been writing my reviews for this page for over six months now and encourage you to have a poke around to see if my style is to your liking.
My preferred genres to work through include all levels of romance, erotica, YA, NA, some paranormal along with thriller and mystery. I have consulted on books that have made Amazon best seller.
Beta / Editing
I offer an honest opinion about the works and offer suggestions of flow, character growth, storyline and plot for the almost completed manuscript. Think of it as a review of your story before it gets published to fix up any little oversights, any flow issues or questions that I might have should I be reviewing an ARC. This is inclusive of the editing services I provide. If there are major issues that I think need to be addressed, the beta and the editing can be split into two processes to give you time to adjust the manuscript to fix any discrepancies. My goal is the same as yours, make this the best book it can be.
I will look over final manuscripts and offer markings on punctuation, grammar, typos – this does not offer any conversation on content issues.
Second glance bundle
This is specifically targeted to stories that have already been published. There is nothing more frustrating than seeing a glaring typo on your work when it’s now on the shelves for the world to see. I get it – editors and proofers are human too but I offer a discounted rate to published authors to catch those pesky typos that might have slipped through.
You can decide when you want that done. Proofing done while I make my beta notes or can return your manuscript to you with my beta notes, you make your edits and then I proof it.
Second glances bundle – can be just proofing or can combine beta notes.
