Independent Authors

Are you working on or have just finished your book?

 

Maybe it's about ways others can improve their lives, a new way of looking at a well-known subject, or a memoir about obstacles you've overcome. No matter the topic, congratulations, that's amazing!

You’re satisfied with the content, and now it's time to focus on the editing. That's where I come in. 

 

I will smooth and polish your writing in preparation for publication, all while keeping your voice. There will be no awkward phrasing or embarrassing errors to distract your readers. Your voice and message will shine through, and you'll present the best version of your writing!
