Heather Alexander Editorial

 

So much work goes into selling a book to a publisher, and sometimes you just need a helping hand to go from “pre-published” to “published author”. I am here to help you achieve that goal. I have nine years of publishing experience as an editor and agent, and a broad understanding of the industry. I can provide detailed edits, advice about career direction, help with query letters, and more. Let’s work together to achieve your goals.

 
 
After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.
— Philip Pullman
 

The Idea:

I believe stories are lifeblood, and a story told well can change lives forever. I’m here to help you elevate your writing in order to share your story with as many people as possible.

What I can do:

I have edited and critiqued hundreds of manuscripts. I can't help myself--I'm always tugging on loose threads to make a story the very best it can be. My role as editor is to help you streamline plot, strengthen character, develop dialogue, perfect pacing, build a believable world, and tighten the narrative. 

The Process: 

Send me your work. For intensive edits, I’ll send you a full editorial letter as well as the manuscript with accompanying notes. Query letters will get a similar treatment. Simple as that!
