Whether your book is just an idea or a completely finished draft, I can help. Trouble getting your ideas down? I've got you. Chapters written but stuck bringing it all together? Not a problem. Draft is done but the story isn't clicking, or maybe you're struggling with query rejections? We'll figure out what needs tweaking.

Stylistic editing for evil geniuses

Commas and spelling. Snore!
Just kidding, I love it. Let me take care of the boring stuff. Grammar. Mechanics. Spelling. I'll make sure your text is correct and consistent. Yes, yes. I am weird.
Great Idea. Full Battery. Can't Lose.

Well... only maybe for the speech. I'll try my best. A sentence at least.
Great! An excuse to write letters and use my insane attention to detail.

What Clients Say:
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!
