Editing, Design, Pre-press
I specialize in developmental and line editing for novels and short story collections, and will accept memoir if the material has a novelistic structure. Categorizing stories is my least favorite thing to do, since so many wonderful stories cross genres, but here’s a working list: Literary Fiction / Mainstream Fiction / Young Adult / Contemporary Romance / Short Story Collections / Memoir / Other genres (by individual assessment).
