My Story - editing a manuscript

Whatever publishing route you choose, your manuscript is made better with a skilled and professionally trained editor. I’ve worked on dozens of books with a variety of authors. Some self-publish while others seek out agents or traditional publishers.

All of them had one thing in common: They wanted the manuscript to be the best it could be.

To learn more about my approach as an editor, here’s an interview with Peg Cheng, author of The Contenders, a middle grade novel.

I have worked in a variety of genres as well as nonfiction, including:

  • Literary fiction
  • Historical fiction
  • Women’s fiction
  • Contemporary fiction
  • Romance
  • Mystery
  • Young Adult
  • Middle Grade
  • Dystopian
  • Memoir
  • Personal history
  • Narrative history
  • Legal
  • Business
  • Training guides
  • Positive psychology (self-help)
  • Interviews
  • Articles

How may I help you tell your story?

Because I have a wide range of life and work experience and have interacted with many different personalities, I can offer a unique perspective on your story while maintaining your voice.

Feedback from clients

“I can’t thank Julie enough for her talent, professionalism, patience, and kindness!”

Rachel Pearson, author of Start It Up!

“Julie is a real pro and very nice to work with. I recommend her without reservation.”

Diann Shope, author of Living Arrangements and Stories from the Field

“I am a former technical editor, and I found Julie’s work to be exceptional. I hired her to fix minor formatting errors in my print-on-demand novel. She found all kinds of formatting errors and was careful at all times to negotiate hours and prices that fit my budget. And she’s a very pleasant and friendly person! I highly recommend her and hope to have her edit my next book.”

Jeanie Murphy, author of Donna Cody
