Dark Rose Publishing Company

Welcome! As an author, one of the most difficult choices you’ll need to make is determining who you will entrust with your story.

I understand!

I had the same struggles as a self-published author. My first book held a special place in my heart, and it was difficult for me to reach out to someone I didn’t know and ask them to share my vision.

I found a passion for developmental editing and proofreading through my process. I don’t ever want to change a person’s story; I want to help the writer create their best version. You are the ship’s captain, and I am here to help steer.

Background: I have educated myself in fantasy and historical fiction writing styles while also attaining a Master of Arts along with two specialized certifications in American Studies and Historical Preservation. I have a Bachelor of Arts focused on American History and my Associate of Arts focused on European Studies.

I am grateful to have had the opportunity to compose pieces for two non-profit entities- American Red Cross and USO- as well as manage the production of content for their social media profiles.

If you think I am the right person for your developmental editing or proofreading project- don’t hesitate to contact me. To ensure that my style works for you- I will be happy to review your first chapter and give you my feedback for free.

Developmental Editing

In the book publishing process, developmental editing is a crucial step in which editors and authors come together to tackle any major issues in the manuscript—such as storyline, form, structure and characterization.

When it comes to developmental editing, the goal is to look at your work objectively and determine how it measures up to industry standards and the expectations of your target audience. After you have revised, reshaped, and finished your manuscript- it will be ready for a copy edit and proofread.

Proof Reading

Proofreading is the last step in the editing process before a document is ready for publication. Copy edits and line edits can make marked changes to the language in the manuscript (i.e., fixing inconsistent spellings or hyphenations), but the proofreader’s job is more about checking accuracy.

A professional proofreader can provide an unbiased perspective when reviewing your work and can be trusted to search for and identify any mistakes.
