Correctness and accuracy. Snore!

Just kidding, I love it. Let me take care of the boring stuff. Grammar. Mechanics. Spelling. I'll make sure your work is correct and consistent. Yes, yes. I am weird.

Book Coach

Great Idea. Full Battery. Can't Lose.

Consider me your Coach Taylor. I am here to help set out your ideas, structure your work, set (and keep) deadlines, maintain plot clarity, consider genre norms, respect character development, organize research and book material, and more. I'll cheer you on. I'll (gently) push you forward. I'll help you through the crises (including of confidence) and I'll end with an inspiring speech.
Well... only maybe for the speech. I'll try my best. A sentence at least.

Manuscript Evaluation

Great! An excuse to write letters and use my insane attention to detail.

With my best pen and fanciest paper... wait, no. Sorry.

With my loveliest PDF document, I will provide you with in-depth information on your manuscript, as well as suggestions for next steps.

 Boo! Jk...

Think less poltergeist and more...invisible word and phrase provider.

Do you have a story to be told? Maybe it's a memoir, a biography, or a speech. Maybe it's a story or children's fiction. If you have a message or idea but lack the skills or confidence to put it into writing, let me! I will stay true to your voice.

What They’re Saying

Is she nice? Is she mean? Does she help?

Let's find out!

Carly Scott did an amazing job in helping me craft the world of my novel, “Cosmogony.” She did an amazing job in the line editing of the piece, and she also did an amazing job in making sure the characters’ story arcs came full circle. She took note of the genre, style, and goals of the work, and she helped me to highlight the best parts of my creative voice in the final product. She even went above and beyond in making sure the book lived up to the ideals and values I hoped to portray, and she helped me to produce a work I was proud of and happy to share with the world. I highly recommend her services as an editor and hope to work with her again in the future!

Christopher Wheat

Carly helped me as my book coach. She took me (and all my anxieties!) on and she helped me get my novel written. This was something I had been working on for ages and just couldn't get the words down. I struggled to organize my thoughts and to keep my plot lines clear. Carly helped me make sure all of my plot lines moved the story forward and shaped my characters. She helped me make sure my character development was complex and authentic. She was there for me when I was thrilled... but also when I was sure I just couldn't do it. I am so happy with the finished product.

Jamie Lee

Carly is excellent, thorough and lovely to talk to! She took my writing, improved it and kept my voice intact. She took the stress out of the editing process!

Heather Barnes

Carly is now my editor for all of my work. I first used her services as a book coach. I learned a lot from her and used her editorial services too. Now I only need editing but I never use anyone else. Plus, I know I can use her book coaching if I ever need it. She is clear, kind, and intuitive. She knows what a book needs and she helps me find it for mine. She makes sure each word is correct and her line editing is the difference between a good novel and a fantastic one. She makes my work look its best.
