Editorial Services

I am now offering editorial services as a book editor through The Writer’s Ally. I’ll be specializing in middle grade and YA fiction, as well as verse novels. In the poetry market, I am available for chapbooks and full length manuscripts.

Here’s a word from founder Ally Machate:

We can help you close the gap between where you are now and where you want to be with your book project. The Writer’s Ally provides book editing services including editing for manuscripts, book proposals, and query letters, training and support around improving your skills or learning to better market your book, and more. If you’re interested in learning more about what we offer, take a look at our services page, or contact us today to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation.

Please visit The Writer’s Ally for more information or contact me at laura@thewritersally.com.

“Laura is a sensitive and thorough editor who takes the time to get to know your story. She never fails to guide me in the right direction!” — Casey Lyall, author of the HOWARD WALLACE, P.I. middle grade mystery series.
