    This is the best choice for your manuscript in progress. I will provide close examination of structure, voice, character, narrative arc, and flow. In addition to a line-edited manuscript, you will receive a comprehensive editorial letter that entails overall suggestions for development from a “big picture” perspective.

    PROOFREADING
    If your manuscript has already gone through an in-depth developmental edit and a subsequent copyedit, then proofreading is the service you need! We'll blow the last little specks of digital dust off your pages.

    MANUSCRIPT CRITIQUE
    Do you have a manuscript with unconventional needs? Are you finished with a project and simply want some informal feedback on structure, theme, or next steps? I charge a flat fee for this service that is based on the size of your manuscript.

As a trained journalist, I got my start as a newspaper reporter before working as an in-house editor for Pearson Education and Cengage Learning, two of the largest educational publishers. Since 2011, I have been a full-time self-employed writer and editor, working out of my home office in San Francisco.

    Working with me is a collaborative, creative process. From the very beginning, I make a point to tailor my work to best meet the client’s needs. Whether I’m editing, writing, or managing a product, every project begins with a client interview to learn about the project’s goals and desired outcomes. After the initial client interview, I start the project in a clear and organized manner by building a detailed project plan and schedule. My ultimate goal is to deliver a product that makes the client dance, hoot, and holler with happiness.

    I pride myself on client satisfaction and I have built my business based on the referrals of satisfied customers. If you’re excited by the idea of working with professional who takes the time to understand your business, LET’S TALK!

    Louann's former career was in business, finance, and economics and included significant writing and editing. . .but she's always loved reading and language, so she obtained a specialized copyediting certification and launched a freelance copyediting career.

Regardless of the type of writing, her goal is always to ensure that the manuscript reflects the best of the author’s ability and unique voice. She sees the editing process as a collaboration with the author in which she acts as a bridge between the author and the reader.
