DEVELOPMENTAL EDITING

We ensure that your
story has a strong root system, so it can grow hardy and healthy.
Issues of story, character, tension,
and pacing are addressed.

   I can help
    it grow. 
  

LINE EDITING

Softening rough edges—smoothing out sentences, removing redundancy—maximizes impact and vitality. Thoughtful pruning promotes
robust flowering.

COPYEDITING

Now it's time to pull the weeds—correcting spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Seeds
left behind germinate new growth.

 TESTIMONIALS 

"Teja has sharpened my writing and improved the end product immeasurably. I trust no one more to root out the errors and keep me focused on the plot." 
                                           
—Christopher Church, author of the

                                              Mason Braithwaite paranormal mystery series

"Through a friendly process, Teja steered me through developmental
edits, enhancing my book’s narrative, character development, and
language. Her reading of the text was thoughtful and thorough. Her copyedits were scrupulous, her communication articulate and always encouraging." 
David Greene, author of the Unmentionables historical fiction series

“Teja is a rock star copy editor who can also pull back and examine the writing at a higher level.” 
                                          
—Tammy Lynne Stoner, author of SUGAR LAND

"Teja was able to hear my needs and my voice and to work with that.
Very professional and great at communicating. I sent the finished product to a publisher and was instantly accepted and the little book has now had rave reviews! I know this is in part due to the impeccable work Teja did to clean up my manuscript."
