Helping YA authors write books that people will want read to forever

You’ve done it! You’ve produced one amazing YA novel. You’d be fair in thinking that’s the hard work done. Unfortunately, publishing can be a pesky business. But you’re not alone, oh no. I’m here for you. No need to worry about inconsistent spelling or errant commas. That’s why I’m here. You can relax and concentrate on making the final touches to the book your readers are going to love.

My job as a professional fiction editor will not only involve looking out for errors that distract from the readability of your novel but helping you to make those stylistic choices that make the difference between a book that is readable and a book that is consistent. If you want to ensure that your voice is strengthened but the meaning behind your words is clear, look no further!
As a writer myself, I get it. This novel is your baby. Handing your novel over to me may cause you some serious anxiety; will I love and care for it the way you do? Never fear, any recommendations and suggestions I make are just that; you have all the control.

Worried about how it will feel to receive feedback? As a former teacher, I have developed a knack for delivering feedback in a way that doesn’t make children cry and I promise to not make you cry either. Us creatives can be sensitive types.
