Editorial Services

Writing a novel can be a daunting task and you want to make sure it's the best it can be before you release it into the world. That's where I come in. 

Why do I want to offer my services? Simply put: I'm passionate about seeing a fellow author's novel come to life.

I have over nine years' experience writing - from contributing to online music publications to law firm marketing... and of course, to my current WIP, DARK EXPOSURE.

I understand that hiring an editor can be scary because you're handing over a project you've slaved over to a stranger... and also, the price.

 

However, I'm happy to discuss payment plans. Please look through the list of services below and contact me, we can go from there.

I highly recommend Kate's editing services. She has helped me with everything from developmental brainstorming to nitty-gritty copy edits that are tedious but necessary. She helps you draw out what you want from your project and helps you implement the steps to make it happen. Also, she's an amazing cheerleader and encourager. Kate is on your side 100% and determined to help you reach your goals.
