Developmental & Substantive Editing
I love all things story - fiction, and creative nonfiction alike. Being a developmental editor is a dream job. I help ensure that your fiction or creative nonfiction manuscript reads in the most page-turning, entertaining, compelling way possible and that your voice and style shines. I spot craft issues, make creative suggestions where you're stuck, and well - I'm basically like a fairy godmother for you and your writing.
I lived and worked in Hollywood for ten years, where I was a story analyst and story editor for novels and film scripts, which left me with a sharp eye for writing that is unique and entertaining. Your story matters. You have to get the attention of readers and you have to hold it. That's my thing and I'm pretty good at it. I love writers. I love stories.
My services are bespoke; tailored for your needs, goals and budget. I will ask to see a sample of your writing. My references speak for themselves and I am always happy to supply you with more.
My writing can be found in the Huffington Post, the Times of Israel, the Jewish Journal, the NY Post, Moment Magazine, Script Magazine and others. My book, The True Adventures of Gidon Lev is one of the Best Books of 2020 in the Kirkus Review. I am familiar with the landscape of both traditional and independent publishing and the routes to both.
