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.

Renda Dodge, former publisher, Pink Fish Press

“Julie edited two of my novellas. Her editing notes were beyond thorough, very timely, and completely professional. Not only did she offer great suggestions for my stories, but found and corrected even the smallest grammar and punctuation issues. I can’t think of anything she missed and highly recommend her to anyone seeking editing in any capacity.”
