If you have any interest in writing, reading, getting published or just talking about books, then you're in the right place.

To be super, super sure, just scroll down!



I really, really like reading great books. Actually, I like reading books that are just pretty good, too. Point is, if I can help as many authors get their books out into the world as possible, then I get to have more and more books to read. Selfish, really.



Are you an author with a completed manuscript you'd like an editorial eye on? You're in the right place.

Are you an author who's got all that sorted out but isn't sure their query letter is quite right? You're in the right place.

Are you an author who wants some pointers on strategy and marketing their book to agents? You're in the right place.

Are you an author who doesn't know what the heck that "query letter" thing I just mentioned is and needs help figuring all of that out (and wait a minute--agents? What? Who?)? You're in the right place. 

Do you just really like to read about books, publishing, writing, writers and probably crossword puzzles* at some point? You're in the right place.

Do you love meatball subs? Me too, but if that's what you're looking for, I'm sorry, I can't be too much help here. But trust me, that's a good thing for you.


*I also really like crossword puzzles.



Hi, how are you? Really, I'm interested. If you don't like talking about yourself or your work to strangers, I totally get it. You can find out a little bit about me beforehand. In short, I'm excited to work with authors and offer all kinds of editorial services for manuscripts, book proposals and query letters at any level of completion.

For some serious query letter mastery, check out my training course, which is called, if you can believe it, Query Mastery
