want your book to be the best it can be?
Publishing is all about marketing
these days, whether you self-publish or go the traditional route.
And great marketing begins with a great book.
It’s my privilege as an
editor and writer with more than thirty years of professional experience
to help your manuscript sing. I can provide an overall evaluation (with
specifics about what’s working and what’s not and
how you might improve it) or content / developmental editing. Here’s
my rate sheet. Please note: I no longer do
copyediting or proofreading.
My experience includes five
years at Writer’s Digest, nine years at Advertising
Age, and acquisitions and development work at two book publishers.
See the About page for more about my background.
See my Speaking page to see the type of presentations
I do for writers’ conferences.
As a published author (see www.melanierigney.com for
the writing side of my life),
I understand writers and the challenges we face today. I’d
be honored to be part of your journey.
