The Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, becomes the guardian of Ciri, surviving heiress of a bloody revolution and prophesied savior of the world, in the first novel of the New York Times bestselling series that inspired the Netflix show and the hit video games.

Services For Authors

What would it feel like to:

  • know with absolute certainty that your book is written well?
  • know who would read your book, and the overall thoughts a person would have while reading your book?
  • have a book with no mistakes or plot holes?
  • be proud of your book?
  • publish an incredible story that readers won’t soon forget?

My book evaluations and developmental edits can make that possible. Let me show you how!

My goal is to help self-publishing authors like you create an unforgettable story. I want your book to be publish-ready. Let’s work together to make self-published authors indistinguishable to their fellow traditionally published authors!

I am a book blogger and devoted bookworm who believes that curiosity drives passion. I love to learn, travel, and read. My fellow readers love to travel by the page and so do I! I love promoting books new and old. Discovering hidden treasures and sharing that with my readers is so much fun to me. Most of all, here at the Purple Shelf Club, I help writers by editing their stories and I help readers to find those stories.

I started editing when I realized that so many self-published authors were struggling with getting their books into the hands of readers. These authors were looking to their friends and family for editing help or asking for feedback in forums on Reddit and Goodreads.

But they weren’t really getting the quality driven help they needed. As a result, self-published authors are getting a bad rep. Book bloggers and readers won’t even give these authors a chance because they know the book won’t be written as well as their traditionally published counterparts. So, I am changing that by providing my editing services. Read more about my services for authors.
