EDITING AND PROOFREADING

Book editing is arguably the most important investment you will make on your journey to becoming a published author.

“There were some plot holes (which I could forgive), but the number of typos and errors meant I couldn’t finish the book.”

Ouch.  That stings, right? It’s probably one of the hardest sentences for an author to read. You’ve put months and months of effort into writing your book. You’ve invested your time and energy, tapping away in front of your computer for hours at a time. Being objective while trying to edit your writing can be impossible. Plot holes can go unfilled. Small inconsistencies can slip through.

It was a delight working with Amanda to edit and refine my manuscript and shape it into a professional novel. Amanda is thorough and meticulous but also has a soft touch, she maintains the author's voice and intent, but expertly sharpens the writing, corrects the mistakes and guides any rewriting. She helped me to create a final product that I'm very proud of. She's wonderful to work with and very helpful with any issues as they arise.
