Editing sells manuscripts.It's All Write Quote Card 2

The difference between a finished manuscript and a published book is the quality of the edit and the rewrite. A good editor never prescribes but works with the writer to bring out the best in the story.

I have over fifteen years’ experience in the book industry and as an editor. As an Accredited Editor with the Institute for Professional Editors (IPEd), I help writers with story arc, plot, character, setting and other elements. I  also provide copy editing and proofreading services and can help with the two key elements in the pitching and submissions process: the synopsis and query letter.
