Melissa Mayntz offers creative editing and proofreading for both fiction and nonficton manuscripts and other projects. Her attention to detail and committment to quality is no different while editing than while writing, and her services include:
Melissa uses a "fresh eyes" perspective of editing that gives her work the natural flow of a reader's experience without usurping the author's authentic voice. Authors must provide printed copy of the work to be edited; galley proofs or printed pages are acceptable. Turnaround time varies; priority projects can be arranged for an additional fee.
Melissa has edited fiction manuscripts including mystery, fantasy, science fiction, romance, thriller, and young adult works. Her nonfiction experience includes biographies, instructional manuals, directories, how-to books, and more. For a complete listing of her editing experience, see her full resume.
