Welcome, and thank you for checking out Three Fates Editing! Why “Three Fates”? The Greek Fates were responsible for spinning, measuring, and cutting life-threads. They ordered our days. The skill with which the Greek Fates carried out these tasks parallels the way an editor works. Editors, like the Fates, must balance the deft precision required for minute details with the ability to see the beauty in the bigger picture. Even the tiniest of changes can have rippling effects throughout a manuscript. It’s also a name that reflects my leanings. I’m a sucker for mythology, sci-fi, fantasy, dystopian—anything of a speculative bent.
At Three Fates Editing, I believe in the magic of words and in their ability to shape our world. Author/editor relationships are built on a mutual love of language and of the story. Because of this, I work on a submission basis, and I only accept manuscripts that I feel a strong connection to. What am I looking for? Strong characters, intelligent plot turns, and beautiful language. Ultimately, my goal as an editor is to recognize the magic in your words and strengthen it. Do you have a manuscript ready for editing? Have a look around, and see what you think, then feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Each project I begin starts with a conversation.
