Need a “Book Doctor?”
Whether you’re simply looking to gain confidence as a writer, discover where to begin, find the right words, organize a project, or finalize a manuscript for publication, I can help.
I have been assisting writers of all kinds for many years through Chrysalis Editorial, a Washington DC-based author services company. There, my business partner, Herta Feely, and I provide manuscript critiques (fiction, non-fiction, memoir, technical), copy and line editing, publishing advice, query letter writing, developmental editing, book proposals, coaching, and more.
*Note: My editing services are completely separate from the literary agency. Either an author contracts me to be their editor, for which I charge a fee, or I represent an author as their agent. As an agent I never charge a fee of any kind, I take a commission on the sale of the book. If an author has hired me to be their editor, I cannot represent their book as an agent.*
