Editing

Unique book change our world. Embrace your unique style and write your book with excellence.

I’m an experienced developmental, line, and copy editor with a passion for excellent writing that respects and enhances unique vision and creativity while connecting with reader expectations so you can reach your audience and get your books read! I bring a deep knowledge of narrative, information organization, market conventions, grammatical structures, and one hundred percent passion to every project.

My prices start at .008 for a basic proofread and go up to .03/word for a deep developmental edit.

Since every manuscript is different, contact me for a five-page sample edit, and I’ll be happy to give you a customized quote. I offer flexible payment plans to work with budgets. I also offer book-to-market editing + book marketing packages. Banish fears about whether your book blurb, back cover copy, graphics, and the rest connect with your book.

Amy Brock McNew

“I would definitely recommend you to fellow PNR and UF authors! Romance authors as well. And of course, sci-fi. Honestly, I don’t think I’d have a problem recommending you to authors of any genre. You are one of the few well-rounded editors I’ve encountered. While you have a specialty, spec fic, you are well versed in tropes and structure of other genres. That’s a rare quality! ”
