The Mission: Write Your Book and Get Expert Editing

Book Editing and Ghost Writing Explained

Book Editing

First of all, congratulations! You are one step closer to being published. But first you’ll want your manuscript professionally edited so that it delights your readers. It’s better to avoid the following flaws now, rather than hearing about it later in reviews:

Write your book. Have it edited. Get published.

  • Misspellings
  • Typos
  • Grammatical errors
  • Usage and style
  • Tense
  • Subject-verb agreement
  • Hyphenation
  • Mislabeling
  • Awkward transitions

I also look at consistency, flow, and pacing, as well as word count, plot gaps and the overall story arc. You may also need help writing and organizing your front matter and back matter too. I can also help write your author’s bio, back cover and book synopsis for Amazon or promotional websites.

“I am extremely satisfied with the editing services provided by Melanie. She has a keen eye and worked fast on my memoir. She offered advice not only for my book, but for social media and marketing. She was understanding and patient with my many changes and questions. She spent a great deal of time on my manuscript to ensure it was perfect before it went to publication. Melanie is very supportive and encouraging! She is highly recommended!” ~ Elizabeth Petrucelli, Parker, CO, author of All that is Seen and Unseen

I can write your book for you!

So How Do I Write Your Book? The Ghost Writing Process…

Every author is unique. Every book is unique. Each process is unique.

One author had compiled a tremendous amount of helpful information on Facebook, another on a blog, and one recorded thoughts as they occurred (often in the middle of the night) and mailed me the tapes intermittently. Many authors need help researching background material, and some ask the I originate much of the content. We’ll consult by phone and email—and believe me, these interactions are key to helping me ghostwrite in your voice.

I’m totally flexible and highly experienced in compiling a manuscript that shares your story. Nothing is outsourced as I write your book (yes, that can happen in some ghostwriting firms). Everything is written by me personally and shared with you chapter by chapter. Often those chapters evolve as new material is added, until we have an entire book written.

I put together your front matter and back matter, and help with the book title, chapter titles, back cover text and your author’s bio.
