Editing Services


I’ve been a freelance editor for almost five years. I edit everything from query letters to full manuscript critiques, and I’ve worked with all age categories and genres. Whether you’re looking for thoughts on the overall plot of your novel or fine-tuned line editing, I’m confident I can help bring your work closer to its full potential.


“I cannot recommend Laura’s query and manuscript editing services enough! She streamlined my query and DVpit pitch, which led to me signing with my dream agent! Her strength is finding the heart of your story and building around it, so that your work stands out among the rest.”

“Query letters are always tough, but Laura helped make it easier for me. She provided constructive criticism, pointed out things that needed clarifying, and added insight into details I might consider adding. Your help was invaluable, and I recommend her wholeheartedly!”
