I strive to work collaboratively with writers to produce the best manuscript possible.

Book Coaching

This involves working with an author from a book’s conception all the way through the publishing process. This is a long and difficult process, and offer services to guide authors through this process. I am also very cognizant of cost, and try to keep mine as low as possible to respect an author’s budget.

Editorial Assessment and Developmental Editing

Both of these services involve a deep dive into your work. This identifies the strengths and weaknesses of a work, and offers feedback on ways to make the weaknesses strong and the strengths even stronger. This provides very detailed feedback on all elements of the work. Clients received detailed feedback in the manuscript as well as a narrative document detailing the main suggestions.

Copyediting, Proofreading, Indexing

For those manuscripts that are ready for the world, these services give the work that final polish and get it ready to present to agents and publishers.


“This is my first project and I had no idea what I was doing or what I was in for and Chad was wonderful. He took the time to understand me and did not hesitate to provide great feedback. I could have never gotten to this point without him. This is the guy you are looking for to boost your project. You wont be disappointed.”

“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
