Torie Amarie Dale is willing to work one-on-one with authors who desire her editing services. This comprehensive edit will include comments on what is working as well as what is not. It will also include line edits and grammar changes/suggestions using Word’s Review mode so authors can easily toggle between the original and the updated version.

 

The edit will work like this: give Torie a brief description of the work and the number of pages you are sending through V Press LC’s Contact Page. After this initial contact, Torie will get in touch with the author on how to submit his or her work to her. It is always best to exchange a page (or  two or three if the work is a larger submission for critique) of work to ensure that Torie’s editing style meets  your writing style. Be aware, you must be receptive to constructive criticism as well as praise.

 

Torie will give only the best and most detailed edit she can possibly give. She doesn’t believe in doing things half way. Only authors/writers who are serious about an intense edit should reach out.
