Developmental and substantive editing for independent authors

Share your story. Empower your words.

Hey there!


My name is Victoria and I’ve been editing since 2016. I love working one-on-one with authors. Together we can make your dream manuscript a reality. You have a story to tell—whether from your personal experiences or your imagination. Why not make it the best it can be?

I have experience in the following genres, but I’m always on the hunt to learn more:

  • Young adult
  • Fantasy
  • Science fiction
  • Memoir
  • Short story & flash fiction

I’m happy you’re here!

Contact me for a free 30 minute consultation! I also accept work through Eschler Editing.

What Is Editing?

The idea of “editing” can seem pretty nebulous. How can you know what to expect and what you need?

Luckily, there are many great resources to help answer these questions.

I wrote a blog article on this topic for Eschler Editing.

The Editorial Freelancers Association also has a great resource to help authors understand the editorial process.
