Editorial Critique (Publishing)
*I've spent more than ten years in the publishing industry as an Acquiring Editor, Managing Editor, and Developmental Editor. As such, I have a strong grasp on what it takes for a manuscript or proposal to get snapped up by editors, publishers, and agents.
*I've also had the pleasure of honing marketing strategies and content throughout the years, so I'm always willing to look at your copy as well!
*As a published author, I spend most of my days honing my craft and doing research. In addition to plot management and grammar syntax, I strive to study character development and motivation.
*Due to the nature of the manuscripts I write, I am uniquely informed when it comes to Fantasy and Sci-Fi world building. I am also a strong proponent on having psychologically interesting characters, so I know a bit about the study of psychology!
