I am Laura Handley, a freelance developmental editor and copyeditor specializing in literary and mainstream fiction, fantasy, science fiction, romance (including erotica), and poetry.

I offer a variety of services to authors and publishers (detailed here), ranging from full developmental edits to light copyedits to hourly coaching. At the moment, I am available for both long- and short-term projects. Send me a short sample of your manuscript, and I'll let you know how I can best help you (and how much it will cost).

For a limited time, as I build my practice, I am willing to provide a free manuscript evaluation or copyedit of up to 50 pages/12,500 words for any new client willing to serve as a reference for me.

Contact me here or by email at editor(at)laurahandley(dot)com to reserve room for your manuscript on my schedule.

Whether your work is ready for editing or still incomplete, I invite you to explore my collection of writing resources. Your improvement and success as a writer is my top priority!
