I am a professional freelance copyeditor, writing coach, and novelist. I edit for the book publishing industry exclusively for agents, individuals, and small publishers. Please request my full resume to see some of the many books I have edited in the last two years. I enjoy working with clients and am dependable, courteous, and affordable. My website is www.cslakin.com
I specialize in helping first-time authors get their books in shape for publishing. I work with numerous novelists and nonfiction authors with everything from developing their book to final proofreading. As a novelist I am knowledgable of the publishing industry and can provide help with proposals, synopses, and query letters. I encourage new authors to first get an annotated full critique of their book to determine the strengths and weaknesses. I have great references and am very committed to helping my clients write the best book they can!
