Hi! Hey! Hello!
I’m Shawna, and I walk with indie authors just like you as you complete your publishing journey. I ease your manuscript over the editing potholes in the path so you can put your writing out there with confidence.
With a little bit of magic and a lot of love, I wrestle those grammar goblins and spelling trolls out of your work, turning your stories into polished, publish-ready prose and you into the author you always dreamed of being.

HOW I CAN HELP

Editing Packages

The Full Editing Journey

A journey of epic proportions through your story’s craft, style, and mechanics where I walk with you from beginning to end. An initial Story Diagnostic will help you tone up your plot, characters, structure, and other craft elements. Next, a Style Tune-Up will polish your style, coherence, and clarity. A final battle with your manuscript’s grammar, spelling, and other mechanics brings the quest to a close.

Style Tune-Up

A Style Tune-Up makes your words stand up and sing! It starts with a deep revision of your entire manuscript, editing line by line to fix  anything that will take a critical reader out of your story. A final battle with your manuscript’s grammar, spelling, and other mechanics brings the journey to a close.

Nuts and Bolts

A Nuts and Bolts has one mission: search and destroy all the grammar goblins and spelling trolls that lurk within your pages. All those rules you learned in tenth-grade English? I remember them all so you don’t have to.

Story Diagnostic

Wondering if your first draft, half draft, final draft, or anything in between is on track? A Story Diagnostic will help you tone up your plot, characters, structure, and other craft elements so you can continue on your quest with confidence.

Other Goodies

More prizes await you at the end of your writing journey, should you prevail. A Query Cleanup puts a shine on your agent introduction, while Marketing Magic polishes your shield—er, your book marketing materials.
