Editing Services

Cassandra Dunn has over 20 years of professional copyediting experience, an MFA in creative writing, and the experience of being a traditionally published author herself (with Touchstone/Simon & Schuster). She has been specializing in developmental edits/book doctor services for the past 8 years. She is passionate about helping authors develop and polish their manuscripts for submission or self-publishing, without compromising their voice or vision. She charges $60/hour, offering authors extensive feedback on plotting, character development, pacing, story arc, as well as a clean, copyedited manuscript. Please contact her with details of your project (a brief summary, total word count, and type of edit you’re seeking) for more information and availability.


“The work you did is at ‘book doctor’ level- I’ve paid editors more who haven’t done half of what you’ve done. You were the best editor I’ve worked with.” Joan Gelfand

“Thank you for your clearly-stated and insightful editorial suggestions. They facilitated a quick and painless revision process….yes, truly possible, thanks to your gift for this.” Margit Liesche
