PICTURE BOOK EDITOR
DEVELOPMENTAL EDITING & CONSULTING
PICTURE BOOK EDITOR
Do you have a picture book that needs a professional eye to help you tighten or develop your idea? Send your manuscript to one of our editors (under 1400 words). You will get honest, helpful feedback about what elements of plot, character, setting, theme, and dialogue are just right-- and which areas could use revision. We will send you a questionnaire about your work, and within three weeks, you will receive an editorial letter and editor's notes to help you make your book the best it can be for the market you are working for. In addition, you will receive an online, face-to-face consultation with an editor to answer questions and learn what is working in your manuscript and/or illustrations. As a professional illustrator, I will also give you suggestions for page turns and how to divide up your text for your picture book.
