You Need Editing
The big New York publishing houses NEVER publish a manuscript without extensive editing! Why would you?
I offer a free consult to discuss your memoir’s needs and The Memoir Network’s ability to meet them.
You’ll be surprised at how much a professional editor can quickly and effectively help you tweak your story so that you get to say more clearly and dynamically what you have been trying to say. We tend to be good at what we do. Said one client: “I accomplished more with you in six months than I had in ten years writing alone.”
