Editorial services

One of my favorite things about stories is how honestly we, as human beings, connect with them on deeply emotional and artistic levels. When a story can touch readers at their very core AND become a market success, well, that can feel almost like magic. Unfortunately, when you're the writer, this magic combination can start to feel like the Golden Goose. But don’t lose hope (or your mind!) just yet. 

 

I'm now going to say something that might seem sacrilegious, so brace yourselves. 

 

​Books are products. There it is, I said it. 

 

Beautiful, heartwarming, intellectual, informative, sweet, funny, clever products -- but products nonetheless. I know it sounds dreadful, but it's actually a good thing! It means we can use our understanding of the industry, the audience, the reader (user) experience, marketing knowledge, and analysis of the competition to consistently and methodically evaluate stories at various stages of development and set a course for success. (Hooray!) 

 

If you choose to work with me, I’ll work with you to understand all of these interwoven factors and use them to propel your stories to new heights.
