Drawing on 13+ years of publishing experience, I offer a wide array of editorial services for your projects in the print and digital spaces. My primary focus is on comics/graphic novel and illustrated gift projects; however, I’m willing to work with you to customize a package of services best-suited for YOUR project.
Manuscript Consultation/Development: I will provide developmental feedback and editorial guidance on your script, thumbnails, finished art, etc. (depending on where your project is at). Level of notes varies from line edit changes to broader structural/functional feedback for your project.
Proposal/Pitch Consultation: Same as above, but with a specific focus on your pitch or proposal document. Having worked with creatives and agents to fine-tune 50+ pitches for acquisitions acceptance, I can provide insights and recommendations to help you (a) highlight what makes your project special, (b) identify the potential audience for your project, (c) speak to potential comparable titles, and (d) quantify your platform and identify your best resources for promotion/publicity. (Note: I can review a current draft of a work-in-progress proposal, or help you build a proposal from scratch.)
Proofreading: I will review your graphic novel, illustrated gift manuscript and art, etc., identifying spelling, grammar, punctuation, formatting, and structural issues on the page, providing direction for revision and helping you bring your project to the level needed for publication success.
Project Management: Starting from any stage of the creation and development of your project, I will oversee the development of materials, facilitate communication between various team members (from author to illustrator to editorial to design to production to printer), and coordinate scheduling to help guide your project in an efficient and effective manner. I will work with you to customize an editorial development and production schedule, set deadlines for deliverables, and connect you with the resources needed for fine-tuning and perfecting your project.
