Freelance Editing and Writing Services for Fiction and Nonfiction Manuscripts

 

Welcome to Triskele Editorial, a freelance writing and editing service for fiction and nonfiction writers alike.

Once upon a time, long ago and far away, I used to tell people my job, then say, “but what I really want to do is make my living reading books all day.” At the time it was a joke. Even though I meant it, I didn’t think that was possible. Well, it turns out it is possible.

Welcome to my dream come true.

And if you’re here, it’s most likely because you’re pursuing a dream of your own: publishing a book. You’ve worked long and hard on your manuscript and it’s time for the next step. But maybe the idea of giving it to someone who’s only going to fill it with red marks is stopping you from taking the leap.

I understand the Fear of the Red Pencil well. I do my best to be gentle. My job is twofold: to preserve your voice and your story, and to make sure you have a manuscript you can be proud of.*

I approach editing with humor, compassion, and honesty. And while I can’t guarantee 100% accuracy (even the Chicago Manual of Style has errors in it; I’ve found a few), I will do my utmost best to ensure your manuscript is as clean and as ready for publishing as I can make it.

So, if you’re at that magical point in your manuscript where you’ve done all you can and you need another pair of eyes, we can help.

Welcome to Triskele Editorial.

 

 

 

 

*Yes, it is okay to end a sentence with a preposition. A good editor will let you know what rules have gone out of style since you were in school (it happens), and how word usage has changed. We’ll also tell when it’s okay to break all the rules and when it isn’t. Because sometimes rules have to be broken for the greater good of the story.
