It’s time to edit your book! The editing process really can be enjoyable and educational. You have a story, and I’d like to help you get it out there to readers.

I’ll help you with coaching, developmental editing, line editing, or proofreading to clean up your manuscript and enhance the story you need to tell. If a beta read is all you need (so poetic!), then I offer comments and suggestions to tighten your story and freshen those characters. I have a background in teaching and love supporting new or established writers. Let’s talk about what you need, and I’ll take a quick look at your manuscript and provide a quote and free sample for you. Authors’ books are frequently Tweeted, posted in Facebook groups, and added to ePen eNews.

Specialties: Mysteries, Cozies, Urban Fantasy, Romances, Paranormal

Click a pen, and let’s get started.


Annie is excellent at tidying up my manuscripts, helping me present readers with a polished book every time! She’s quick, dependable, and always great at catching the little things that slip past me.
C. Greenwood, USA Today Bestselling Author

Every writer needs a strong, smart editor with a sense of humor. I am fortunate to have found that person in Annie. She has a wonderful sixth sense about what I’m trying to say and sculpts my intentions into understandable form. I cannot recommend her highly enough if you are looking for the best possible burnishing of your tender manuscript. 
-H. Byron Ballard, Author of Asfidity and Mad-Stones

How did I ever publish a book before Annie came along? I thought I had a firm grasp on grammar, but she catches things I never knew were mistakes. I’ve had readers comment on how well edited my books are now, something that never happened before I made the investment with The Editing Pen. If you’re writing, you need to put your book in front of a great editor before you hit “publish,” and Annie’s the best.
