"Who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults." 

- Psalm 19:12 

I love chronically overwhelmed writers–which is to say, pretty much all writers. We all need help discerning our errors, and forgiveness for our hidden faults. I think that’s just a given. Forgiving help has improved my own writing unlike anything else. And if you’d asked 18 years ago if I’d still be editing books today, I’d have said no way. But this slow, even tedious, work is actually pretty exciting–even a small way for me to feel I’m bettering the world, while treating my addictive personality. Win/win!

My business is editing, structuring, and guiding revisions on inspirational memoirs, novels, and Christian living (the humble kind, mind you). After acquiring authors for trade publishers for 10 years, I now help businesses, counselors, speakers, and agents develop clear visions and hopefully, sell more copies.

The method to this madness is taking a book at whatever stage it’s in, and drawing out its uniqueness to stand out in the over-saturated market. And whether you need coaching or editing, that will basically involve refining and reading it as a reader to see what needs adjustment chapter by chapter, until it fully delivers on that promise.

If you’ve been trying to follow a call to provide hope with an inspiring story, Sheri would be happy to send a description of my services and rates (an assessment of your first 30 pages is often a good place to start).

Let’s make contact! 

(remember that old PBS show?)
