Let’s face it: Everyone needs an editor

Whether it’s to give everything a quick once-over, or it’s to make sure all the parts fit where they should, an editor is there to help you make your work shine like it ought to. A good editor helps you find even more pride in your work at the end of the project, not to mention helps you learn and grow as an author. It’s just a matter of finding someone you can work with.

And that’s the hard part, isn’t it?

After you’ve put all that time and effort into writing your book, when you’ve decided to self publish or you’re looking for that extra push to help you take your writing to the next level, somehow you have to find the perfect person to work with.

My name is Liz, and I’m an author and an editor. I love words and books of all kinds. I especially love romances and all their delightful happily ever afters. And I want to be the one to help you make your book shine the way it deserves.

Editorial Services

Proofreading

Proofreading includes reading for spelling, punctuation, and grammar. In addition, I will keep an eye out for any formatting gremlins.

Copy Editing

Everything in a proofread, and then some. Copy editing includes reading for continuity, flow, and basic structure. Also includes light fact-checking.

Content Editing

Spelling, punctuation and grammar is just the start. You get light fact-checking along with intensive, in-depth reading for content, flow and structure. Also includes an additional proofreading pass at no additional cost.

More that just an editor

Beta Reading

A single read-through of your manuscript for readability, plot holes, consistency, and the general feel of the story. You will get back notes and recommendations along with my impressions.

Series Bible

Every character, every location, every fictional creature, all in one easy-to reference file that I will update for you as your series grows. Never worry about accidentally resurrecting your hero’s grandmother again.

Blurb Writing

Yes, I will write your blurb for you. We’ll discuss your book, break down the important points together, and then I’ll craft you a blurb to help catch your readers’ attention. Rate includes two additional passes if needed.

Testimonials

Liz is one of those editors who truly works with you to bring out the best in your story without asking you to compromise on author voice or stylistic choices.

Vanessa North author, www.vanessanorth.com

Liz is a joy to work with. She had edited several of my books, and always respected my voice. A stickler for details and grammar, I could count on her to catch my typos and poor choice of words!

Not Just a Red Pen

Sometimes, you need more than just an editor. Sometimes you need a beta reader, or someone to keep track of the thousand and one amazing little details of the book series you've slaved away on. Sometimes, you need someone who will be honest and helpful, and who only wants to see you succeed. That's where I come in.
I offer a wide range of options, including:

  • Editorial treatments from proofreading and up
  • Beta reading
  • World Bible creation and maintenance
  • Blurb writing

Don’t Settle for Less Than Happily Ever After

Are you ready to choose an editor who will be there for you? Have more questions? Either way, I'd love to talk to you!

Edits with attention and love

If you’re like me, you’ve finished a manuscript, sat back and declared it perfect and ready… only to find a massive goof later on down the road. I once changed a character’s name in the middle of a book. Then changed it back. And back again.

Thank goodness for the editor’s editor, am I right?

The reason why I’m telling you this is because we all need an editor at some point. As a writer, as the creator of stories only you can tell, it’s only natural to get so close to the literary forest you can’t see the metaphorical trees.

I bring my own axe. And I know that Monty Python song by heart.

But even aside from my fabulous sense of humor, I also treat every job with the utmost sensitivity and care. Your book came from your heart and mind, and it’s part of you. I never forget that, even while I’m elbow-deep in your prose.

Let’s do this thing

I believe in working with you on the edits. Every project is a collaboration, and my job is to help you with what you need to make your work shine.
