Editing, Mentor and Copywriting Services
‘Under Mel’s mentorship I have completed a manuscript I am really proud of. Her touch is on every page. She taught me the skills of the craft; edited; served as a sounding board for ideas, dilemmas and doubts; encouraged me to trust my growing competence; and finally, made suggestions for publishing. She has stood beside me every step, and stumble, of the way...there is an art in being unflinchingly critical and encouraging in the one response! I hope that she knows just how much I appreciate her.’
'I struggled to make sense of my first draft. My memoir used extensive back story alongside a linear arc. Transitions were confusing and overwriting diluted the narrative. Then I turned to Melanie. Within a week she provided editorial support that suggested a change of tense, tightened my writing and added an invaluable roadmap to improve structural clarity. Regrets? One. I wish I had found her sooner. Thank you, Dr Melanie Myers!'
I found Melanie' s constructive feedback when preparing my book for publishing, of tremendous help. When writing my book Jae-Dee Survives the Home of Many Mothers, a fictional story inspired by a memoir. Melanie was able to give me an independent and outside view on the writing that I had become too close to. I was unable to critically analyse my writing or see where my writing required improvement.Because I wrote my book from the first voice of the "Inner Child" my vocabulary and expression became limited. Melanie was able to suggest that I bring a third voice to add depth, perspective and hindsight. Melanie suggestions, and supportive words were very helpful.I gained the confidence to progress my writing to its final outcome.I would have no hesitation recommending Melanie Myers for anyone requiring an editor or mentor during their writing journey to publishing.
