Today, on this 15th day of the first month of 2015, I have a few announcements to make that I’m rather excited about.
I’m taking a sabbatical of sorts from editing until summer 2015.
Part of this is so that I can focus on querying my own novel, which I finished in 2014.
Another part of it is so that I can declutter and minimize our things, since we’d like to downsize to a smaller house this summer.
I’ll still be editing query letters and synopses, but I won’t be taking on additional clients for manuscript critiques, substantial editing, or copyediting until June or July. If you’d like to book me for this summer or fall, please contact me!
To make sure nobody goes without solid editing services, I’ve assembled a team of talented freelance editors.
Introducing MS Edits:
MS Edits (or Ms Edits) is a team of myself, an associate editor, Elizabeth Buege, and two assistant editors, Megan Ruesink and Kaleigh Walter. Elizabeth, Megan, and Kaleigh graduated from the same English program I did, and have completed the necessary courses in literature, writing, editing, and grammar to make me very confident in their work.
What’s also exciting is that we each have different specialities, so you’re bound to find a good match for your manuscript’s needs.
Find out the services we offer, read our bios (which includes our favorite books, movies, and TV shows), see which fiction genres or nonfiction topics we specialize in, or search our index of all genres and topics A-Z.
Note that the MS Edits website is a directory, not a company website. Each editor is an independent contractor, and you will contact her individually for a quote.
I’m so excited to introduce these ladies to you all, and I’m excited to see what this new year will begin!
To celebrate announcements #1 and #2, I’m doing a special on query letter edits:
Through the month of January, query letter edits are only $15! Send your query letter to querylara (at) icloud.com to receive information regarding payment. (You’ll need a PayPal account.)
