My goal through Sylverlining is to aid authors of nonfiction and fiction manuscripts. I enjoy assisting authors who strive to clarify, simplify, and finesse their writing. My services include helping you prepare a book proposal, strengthening your manuscript through judicious editing, editing your notes and bibliography, and proofreading your text. In addition, I can serve as a coach as you work through the publishing process. My experience includes both trade and university press publishing, and I have worked with authors of history, military studies, political science, and literary studies as well as authors of poetry and books on gardening.
