Mary can now help you with your book, too, or your story or article. She is providing these services specifically for spiritual authors interested in self-publishing, or spiritual writers who wish to polish their manuscripts before submitting to a press. Instead of charging by the hour, or per word, like many freelance editors, Mary is offering the following editorial and consulting services at flat rates. Discounts and sliding scales are also available.

Developmental Editing – In a developmental editing process Mary will look for critical problems in the manuscript. She will bring your attention to issues with character development, setting, plot (if necessary) and dialogue. She will comment directly on your manuscript via Microsoft Word to show you what you need to work on. You will also be provided with a letter called an editorial review that will go into more detail concerning any problems your manuscript might have. Within a four week period you will receive your manuscript, containing editorial comments and suggestions, along with the editorial review.
