These days, it’s easy to become a self-published writer but unfortunately, that leads to a lot of books that are–how can I say this–BAD. As an experienced editor, I can tell within the first couple of pages if a book is worth my time as a reader–and if it had any professional editing before publication. It breaks my heart because I know how much hard work (and time, and soul-searching, and self-doubt, and sweat and tears) goes into writing and self-publishing that book–and it’s not worth reading.
Even successful commercial writers at big publishing houses go through many rounds of editing before anyone gets to read their work. As a self-published writer, so should you.
At Front Runner Communications, I offer editing packages tailored to your needs and finances. My goal is not to get rich, but to make your writing better. Here are some of the questions I’ll ask at our first meeting:
- How long have you been a writer?
- Who is the audience for your manuscript?
- What is your goal for your completed manuscript?
- Have you ever worked with an editor?
- Do you have any beta readers?
- Have you done a round of self-editing with this checklist?
- What is your release/distribution plan for this manuscript? (It’s okay if you don’t have a plan yet…I can help!)
Much of my career was spent writing press releases, corporate reports, government reports, marketing brochures, white papers, etc. If you’re starting a new business and need some help with your corporate voice (or just need an extra set of eyes on your content), contact me. I promise, it will be worth your time.
This is my specialty. I’m available for small technical writing or technical editing jobs. See my LinkedIn profile for references.
Scripts and Screenplays
Happy to review your work and give feedback before you begin production or send your baby out into the world. I have a Master’s degree in screenwriting and have written several feature-length scripts.
I have self-published five of my own books, handling everything from cover design to distribution. I can consult with you on every step and provide services or referrals, if needed.
