Beth is a writer’s best resource because, even though I consider myself a strong writer, she saved me from mistakes I didn’t realize I had made due to her deep understanding of the technical nuances of language. She ventures far beyond what most mere mortals know about writing. Beth also strengthened my final product with her questions, recommendations, and value-adds that went beyond editing. Best of all, Beth presents a friendly, personable demeanor and is softer around the edges than other technical specialists, while still being firm, and a consummate professional.

Copy Editing

A final step in preparing manuscripts, articles, etc., for publication, which involves verifying facts and ensuring consistency, accurate spelling, grammar, style, and tense by established deadlines. Beth ensures your text is clear, concise, correct and consistent.

Writing Coach

Designed for people who want to write but are stuck at the beginning, middle, or end of the project. Beth offers a single coaching call to get you started and/or a package to help you get your story on paper.

“A good copy editor not only corrects mistakes but teaches in the framework of an encouraging relationship with individuals who genuinely want to publish polished messages while maintaining an authentic voice. My copy edits often shorten and tighten copy. This is especially helpful to writers, authors, and publishers who know that publishing longer books costs more. Words should be powerful and concise.”
