If you've written it, I can help make it better, whether it's to clean up the grammar/syntax, spice it up, or make sure that you and your writing are presented as professionally as possible.
I focus on specific genres to give you the best edits possible. These edits are completed FAST. During the entire process you will be informed of where I am and when you can expect your edit finished.
I specialize in Science Fiction and Fantasy for Middle Grade—meaning books written for the age group of 8-12 years—and above. This includes YA (one of my favorites), New Adult, and Adult novels.
I enjoy dystopians, paranormal, science fiction, and especially fantasy (both high and low). Sorry, but I do not edit non-fiction.
