I’ve critiqued and edited hundreds of manuscripts (references available) for novelists and non-fiction writers alike. Beyond copy-editing, I offer developmental and structural editing, with your whole project and an eye toward publication in mind.

My rates are competitive, my work thorough, but compassionate. As I am also a writer, I know exactly how hard you’ve worked, and how important it is to be given clear guidance on where to go next.

  • Novels
  • Memoirs
  • Non-fiction books
  • Non-fiction book proposals
  • Essays and short stories
  • Academic papers

When you contact me for an editing bid, please specify the type of editing you are interested in (rates vary):

  • Copy-editing / proofreading (typos, grammar, etc.)
  • Developmental editing (structure, plot, character, etc.)
  • Complete edit (copy-editing and developmental editing in one)

  2. Dear Ms. Rosenfeld:

    I am reading “Make a Scene” and it is teaching me techniques I have wanted to know about all my life.

    I am struggling to plot my memoir. I think I’ve defined the theme, the subplot, the period, the viewpoint, the initiating incident, the climax and the end. But the writing sounds amateurish.

    Do you offer coaching services? If so, can you please tell me how it works and how much it costs?

    Thank you very much. And thank you very much for your excellent book, which is providing answers to questions I’ve struggled with for 30 years.

  3. Dear Ms. Jordan Rosenfeld,

    I have completed a novel that has been revised, edited and revised. I’m becoming somewhat drained from working on my manuscript for 3 years to manifest perfection. My editor was good but not great. Now I have a couple of agents who are interested and really like my style of writing. One agency responded saying that I need to go back & revised each chapter regarding POV’s (Point of Views) for a better flow. The other agency, which is a christian publishing company also, what’s to rewrite Chapter 1. I’m confused, and I need some advice. I’ve got other agencies who answered my queries request for more information. I feel like time is not on my side. Do I submit my original material? Or do I take a chance on revising, which will take a lot of time. I need your help and maybe just a small bit of editing on how to separate POV’s in each chapter. Please Help…Thanks for your time.

    Blessings to you,
