Brette specializes in developmental editing of nonfiction books, articles, and posts. Developmental editing is an in-depth look at the content, organization, and cohesiveness of a work. This is in contrast to copyediting which is a close check of grammar. spelling, and punctuation. As a developmental editor, Brette helps you work through your project to improve it, tighten it, and bring out its true message and voice.

Brette has been working in the nonfiction article, content, and book market for over 15 years and has developed a keen eye for what works and how to see the potential and full message of a book, article, or post. She works closely with her authors and clients, committed to having their voices shine through so their goals can be obtained.

She also offers specialized high-end fact-checking for financial and legal sites, books, and white papers.

“After participating in a Hay House writer’s workshop, I came to Brette with an idea, but it was her magic touch that helped me make it a book. Not only she has many years of experience and can spot immediately what can make the book more fun, engaging and easier to understand, she knew exactly what Hay House would want to see in my book proposal and how to make it a great value proposition.

She helped me keep pace with her very prompt response and clear guidance.

Brette was my editor, my book coach and my cheerleader. I am now happy to say that thanks to her amazing help my book won the grand prize and will be published by Hay House! I couldn’t be more grateful for Brette’s advice.”

“I hired Brette to help me with an ebook project and was quite satisfied with her work. She asked intelligent questions and gave good feedback as I provided first drafts of written text and she edited the content. Would be happy to work with her again on future projects of a similar nature and can recommend her to others seeking a freelance writer or editor.”

“Brette has become one of my favorite go-to freelance editors and fact-checkers for MoneyGeek.com. Her ability to turn around copy in a reliably quick amount of time with thorough edits has made her an incredibly valuable asset to our company. On top of that, she’s a pleasure to work with! Professional and meticulous, Brette would be a beneficial addition to any team that needs rigorous content fact-checking.”
