Manuscript Editing

Whether you’re self-publishing or getting a book ready to send to agents, I provide both line edits and structural feedback. I also edit articles, theses, dissertations, and reports. I am versed in Chicago Manual of Style, AP Style, and MLA.

“I hired Shannon to proofread and edit my 75-page Master’s thesis. I was at a point of having lived inside the document for so long, I no longer trusted myself to see what was really on the page. Shannon came through and edited my thesis beautifully—from smoothing out the phrasing of a sentence, to correcting the minutiae of MLA citations, and everything in between. She was professional, prompt, and reasonably priced. I’m grateful to have found her and recommend her without reservation.” — Molly S.

“After carrying my first manuscript for over seven years, I was anxious about sharing it with anyone else. Shannon eased my concerns by providing excellent feedback and detailed communication throughout the entire editing process. As professional as she is personable, I hope to work with her again in the future.” — S. Latria

“Shannon has great instincts and editorial skill and that’s something that can’t be taught.” — Elisa Stanford, Edit Resource, LLC
