Editorial Services


Christ's Power



Let me help you improve your
God-given talents as a Christian writer!


Personalized service

I assume that every manuscript submitted for editing, proofreading, or editorial consulting is written by a dedicated believer in Christ who believes that God has given them a talent to write and a calling to share their Christian faith.  That being so, I give every manuscript, whether a short story, article, or book-length fiction or non-fiction, personal, prayerful, and detailed editing as a created work between the author and God.

No “levels” editing

All manuscripts, regardless of length, are treated equally.  They are proofread for simple errors, typos, and correct grammar, copyedited for clarity, syntax, and correct facts with attention to biblical citations, quotations, and theology; and content edited for thematic continuity and development in non-fiction, and character and plot development in fiction. My specialty is comprehensive assessment and editing of book-length non-fiction mss.

Scope of editing services

My goal in editing all manuscripts submitted is to help each author develop their God-given talents.  Any natural talent can be improved upon, including writing.  Therefore, my services to all writers include a written evaluation and critique, and consultation if desired or necessary so you can master the art of writing to communicate your faith and succeed at being a published author.
