Books I’ve Edited:
“I backed myself into a corner with my first self-published book. I felt I overpromised my Kickstarter backers with a timeline I didn't think I was going to be able to meet. I contacted Briana for her editing services as a desperate effort to find someone who would be willing to edit my book in a crunch. Not only did she agree to edit the book on short notice, she finished editing even sooner than I could have hoped. She was pleasant to work with, her suggestions helped more than I could have imagined, and I plan on going back to her for her services with all my releases.”
“Briana is an amazing resource to all types of writers, from the newbies to the multi-published. She helped me break down exactly what problems I was having, as well as pinpoint the root cause of the problem. She helped me see things in a way that I had never thought about before. Then we worked through potential solutions and I was able to walk away from the coaching session with tangible action items, not just empty motivation or broad solutions. Regardless of where you are in your journey, you can absolutely learn something from Briana.”
“Briana’s editing service has been invaluable in my writing. She provides insightful, thoughtful analysis and critiques of works, from early stage developmental editing through to copy edits and final tidy ups. I’ve shared many works with Briana for review and it’s clear that she takes the time to read and reflect on the story, understanding the emotive purpose and message in each. She’s also fast, fun and great to work with.”
“Briana is the first freelance editor I've ever hired, and her feedback was everything I could have wanted and more. Her questions and comments helped me to think more deeply about my plot and characters than I had before, while being respectful and encouraging of my personal voice. Her feedback was organized, sensitive, and just what my story needed. I'm very grateful for her support and would gladly work with her again.”
“I've worked with Briana twice now and she was a pleasure to work with both times. Her comments help me improve my drafts, make me smile, and are encouraging! I'll definitely be back in the future.”
“I have been writing for many years, but the past couple had me blocked. Between hard life turns and physical and mental health issues, my confidence as an author had cratered. Therapy had helped in many ways, but my writing remained stuck and actually caused me major anxiety. Then, I had a coaching session with Briana. I honestly didn't hold much hope for it because I felt so far gone. But Briana helped me break down the issues I was having and gave me concrete, actionable steps to help overcome them. I'm finally seeing a way out and it's all thanks to Briana. I can't recommend her coaching services highly enough!”
