Scripta Word Services
I offer professional, affordable, author-friendly editing coupled with value-added service, tailored to each project and each client. It's my job to make YOU look good, and help you get the results you want. I do all levels of editing, from developmental/structural to line and copy editing to proofreading. Not sure if I can help with your project? Ask! You'll probably be surprised.
My specialty is fiction, with frequent forays into nonfiction and commercial text. In the past nineteen years I’ve edited and/or evaluated over 480 novels and nonfiction books and worked on over 300 short projects for indie authors and publishers, businesses, and individuals. I have a long background in speculative fiction (science fiction, fantasy, horror) and historical fiction, but I work on all genres.
I particularly enjoy working one-on-one with authors to prepare their manuscripts for publication in American and Canadian markets, also helping them write cover letters, synopses, back cover blurbs, press releases, and website text. As a published writer myself, I bring my expertise and empathy to every author-editor collaboration.
