PLEASE NOTE: Because of multiple book deadlines and a pile of backlogged editing work during the pandemic, I have no availability for book-editing projects at the moment. I will not be able to take on book projects from unsolicited authors in 2022 or 2023. Thank you very much.

In addition to my existing work, I offer a number of services for clients. These include editing services, SEO, and a variety of writing services including (but not limited to):

Writing freelance articles for print or online magazines and news organizations. I’m available to write features and department pieces, and will submit clips specific to your publication’s subject area. I write for both consumer and trade publications.

Copy editing for publications or individuals. I will help publications with these tasks on a freelance or short-contract basis, and can help individuals with getting their materials ready for publication or distribution. I know the Chicago Manual, Associated Press, and Fairfax Media style guides, and have worked with individual clients’ guides as well.

Proofreading books or screenplays, meaning a general copy edit including grammar, style, consistency, and so forth. Includes a consultation.

Editing books or screenplays for individuals, which includes proofreading as well as developmental consulting help with plotting, character development, and story. This does not involve ghostwriting or rewriting, but I will help you make your existing work as strong as it can be.

Writing loglines and synopses for scripts, plays or books.

Interview consulting to help writers get used to talking about their work or to help them better define an in-progress or pending project by discussing it aloud to a professional.

General consulting for authors, screenwriters or freelancers to help them brainstorm and define their projects. These can be done by phone, e-mail or (where possible) in person.
