I am stoked. I am seriously, seriously stoked. For the past couple of months, I’ve been running my Countdown Series all in preparation for this day.
I am excited to announce that, as of today, I’m expanding my business, Shari’s Ink, to include novel editing services!
Specifically, I will edit novels for:
- Self-published authors
- Writers needing help on their manuscripts before querying literary agents
As many of you know, I’ve been an avid reader for years, so expanding my business to include editing novels is exhilarating for me. Part of my job will be to get lost in other stories and worlds. I’m a lucky girl.
My First Author Client Speaks Out
As part of my launch, a very special person—my first author client, Buck Barry—agreed to speak out about the work I completed for him. He says …
“I would highly recommend Shari’s Ink for novel editing. Working through my novel, I found Shari to be highly professional and timely in her feedback. More importantly, from larger structural issues to detailed edits, Shari’s insight was very helpful. Shari also communicated well in offering critique and reinforcing strong points of my novel.”
Buck is currently working on the second draft of his novel, but head over to his author’s website when you have a second to check out other samples of his soulful, southern writing. He’s awesome.
I’m a Writer, First
First and foremost, I’m a writer, above all else. In fact, I have more than a decade of experience as a professional writer, editor and journalist (some of my publishing credentials include the Arizona Republic, Phoenix Magazine, MilitaryTimes.com, The Officer Magazine, and The Daily Courier, among others). My marketing and journalism backgrounds allow me to offer a unique perspective on story structure, character development, dialogue, story arcs, narration and flow, especially when it comes to keeping the reader captivated.
I LOVE stories. I live my life to tell them, whether through articles, novels, short stories, photographs, or even social media. Now, I’m excited to read your stories, and help you shape them for the better.
