Developmental Editing Service

This service provides two thorough read-throughs of your work with in-manuscript commentary, including 

​content, line and copyediting. 

I will offer suggestions for awkward sentences, story consistency, plot holes, timeline and character inconsistency, pacing, and tips to avoid unnecessary repetition of words, phrases, and more

Final-Eyes Proofreading 

This service provides a thorough proofread after the copyedit.



This very detailed editing service focuses on the mechanics of the manuscript, grammar, and punctuation.


A Tweak and A Touch Up

Sometimes a few errors have slipped through editing eyes prior to publication. This services provides one read of your published work, offering minor feedback suggestions, with a primary focus on strengthening sentences, and catching errors previously missed.​               

. . . even if you are established at a publisher with a dedicated editor, Marion has a perspective and an editorial hand that is beautifully additive.
