Editing & Writing
The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone;
the Lord has done this and it is marvelous in our eyes.
Psalm 118:22-24

Cornerstone-Ink Editing Mission Statement

My desire is to be an encourager and a mentor to other writers--to help them develop the skills needed to answer their call to write. Each manuscript entrusted to me is a gift from God that I am to nurture
 with respect for the author and his or her voice, while moving the writing closer to publication quality.

Editing Services

Basic Copyediting:  I identify and correct errors in punctuation, word usage, grammar, and spelling. I check sentence structure and clarity, reading level, redundancies, inconsistencies, and note any sections that may need further attention by the author.

Content or Developmental Editing:   I cover the areas noted above, and correct errors in transitions, style, organization, and check for the needed story elements in fiction. I provide suggestions for rewriting problem passages and for improving the overall flow and readability.

Other Services
Proposal and Sample Chapter Critiques: I provide an overall critique pointing out  strengths and weaknesses in the manuscript.

Book Mama: With this service, I tutor you through the book writing process, providing feedback as you go, and helping you achieve your book writing goals.

Please Note: I do not provide proofreading services for any manuscript that I have edited.
