Help with Your Manuscript

YOU’VE GOT A STORY TO TELL

Your grand adventure of floating down the Amazon, or hitchhiking cross country in the 60s, or driving through the desert with only a teaspoonful of water needs to be written down.

Or maybe you’ve overcome some great obstacle in the course of your life. You’ve faced an enormous challenge and conquered your fear. By telling your story your courage and determination can serve to inspire others.

When you were growing up, did your parents or teachers ever shake their heads and bemoan the fact that you couldn’t tell truth from fiction? Put your stories into print and prove once and for all that there’s nothing truer than fiction.

In today’s world of mass communication there are lots of ways to share your words. Your job is to write them down. My job is to make them look good.

IS YOUR WORK READY?

OK, so you’ve put a lot of work into your writing. You’re proud of the results, and you’re ready to send your manuscript out into the publishing world. You eagerly put your work into an envelope and add the stamp.

But wait! Is your work truly ready? Yes, you’ve gone over every word countless times, but might there be things you’ve overlooked? For example, could there be a typo you missed? Did the spellchecker catch all misspelled words? Are all your tenses consistent? Is your dialogue believable? Did you change the name of a character in the second half of the manuscript and forget to change it in the first half?

Fear not! Help is at hand. I’d be happy to give your work that extra going-over. Let me ease your worries, boost your self-confidence and increase your marketability. I’ll polish your prose while retaining your own unique voice. I’ve had years of experience, editing books, articles, academic courses and web content. Whether you already have a publisher or want to self-publish, let me make your words shine.

Contact me for that fine tuning that will keep your style intact and make your words shine. My sharp-eyed editing just may be the extra boost you need to make that positive first impression and increase your confidence as you send your manuscript to a publisher.

BONUS: WRITING AND TRANSCRIPTION ALSO AVAILABLE

In addition, if you’re having trouble writing down your thoughts, let me help you put your ideas into words.

I also transcribe the spoken word. If you dictated your novel and want it in written form, or if you’re an academic who wants interviews and lectures transcribed, I can do that as well, either verbatim or carefully edited to remove redundancy while retaining essential content.

    Hi Liz,
    I think you are taking on an extraordinary undertaking. I wish you well and I will certainly spread the word. I have a friend who edited text books, I could ask her for details if that is anything you are interested in doing. I know those folks down in Texas who seem to want to rewrite history and science could certainly use your help. I doubt that they would ask.

      Janet, thanks for the good wishes. Textbooks can always use a bit of tweaking.

    Jean, thank you for your question. Fees are under “rates” above, starting at around 1.5 cents a word and are adjusted according to difficulty.
