Picture Book
Editing Package

 A trio of edits that will take your manuscript from amateur to expert level with a professional analysis, a detailed structural edit, and a line-by-line copy edit.

Introducing Your Book's New Best Friend!

Your readers are waiting.
It’s up to you to give them the story they need.

Editing is like doing the dishes. You can pre-rinse as much as you want, but there always comes a point when it’s time for the dishwasher to take over.

At the end of the day…

Every author needs a professional editor.

But if you’re anything like my now-published authors were when they first started, you probably feel stuck or don’t know how to find one.

If you can relate, then the Picture Book Editing Package is the compact resource for you.

You CAN inspire your future readers. You CAN be proud of your writing. You CAN become a top-quality author.

Are you ready for that?

What's Included

Manuscript Analysis
  • Big-picture edits that will build a strong foundation to set your story up for success.


Structural Edit
  • Scene-by-scene content recommendations to bring cohesion and clarity to your manuscript.


Copy Edit

Your Book Deserves Quality Editing.

As the author, YOU have the final say on which edits to apply. However, please know that no matter your decision, the review provided by the editor is final and there will be no additional edits, accommodations, or refunds provided.
Remember, we edit not to change your story, but to offer an outside perspective.
