“I care even more about having the author’s words loved.”
It’s not my writing, but I’ll do everything I can to make it shine while retaining the author’s style and voice. I do my damnedest to make those words loved.
A page is double-spaced with one-inch margins, and a standard 12pt. font.
I edit in a sort of hybrid way that looks at the big picture while going through the manuscript line by line, keeping the story, plot, and character continuity in mind. The flow, the construction, and presentation of ideas, characters, and stories are all evaluated in addition to suggestions for improvement. I will point out repeated words, make sure meanings are clear, tighten the writing so the story and plot don’t get lost in paragraphs of unnecessary descriptions of the grass and sky. Let’s keep the focus on the story. I do not edit an author’s voice or style.
If there is a problem, we will work it out. I want to make it very clear: I do NOT edit for voice, style, or tone. This work is not mine, it’s yours, and I’m here to make it shine.
Payment can be made by PayPal, Venmo, CashApp, or bank transfer. Once I have receipt of payment (and in some cases, clearance), I will return your manuscript to you. I will provide you with an invoice if you need one. I will not discuss the details of your work with anyone except you, the client, unless you’ve given me your permission.
Amber is one of the meanings of the name Elektra (Electra). It also means radiant, shining and bright. Electra was to be one of (the muses in) the Seven Sisters, the Paleades (Pleiades) before she left, myth says, because of the events at Troy. She is the third brightest star in the constellation.
