Professional Editing BEFORE You Submit or Publish
You’ve spent months to years pouring your heart and soul out into your Urban Fiction Book and complete it only to find out it requires a little more work. What you need now is a trained set of eyes to see the errors you no longer can and to smooth out the rough edges. This is where I come in!
My urban writers’ book editing services are vital to ensuring that you make your best first impression with every reader. I’ll take your story from good to great by editing for grammar, punctuation, and spelling, as well as ensure continuity of ideas, flow of thoughts and general cohesion of your writing. Of course, I ALWAYS maintain your artistic voice and style throughout the book! All at a reasonable editing fee!
I know Literature, AND I know Urban Literature.
I am deeply devoted to elevating the genre by producing work that meets the highest standards of grammar while remaining true to the authentic street language of urban characters. I am knowledgeable in the language styles of many different areas, sometimes known as a dialect. For example, an urban character from Brooklyn would speak completely differently from an urban character from Atlanta, Miami or LA!
Competent wordsmithing AND street credibility are vital for the Urban Fiction genre to flourish and evolve and be given its proper place in American Literature.
The reason is simple. Urban Literature is history in the making. Just like with Hip Hop music 30 years ago, the works being produced right now will one day be classics as the genre goes more mainstream, and as new styles and new writers’ voices emerge onto the scene.
That said, I operate as a muse as much as an editor. My goal is to accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative, so your ideas flow smoothly and clearly. I make use of my marketing experience as much as my literary and Urban backgrounds to make your writing stand out in the way that you envision.
I don’t just edit your manuscript. I work hard to help you grow as a writer and to see your career evolve as an author.
Clear communication is vital, on the page and off. I help you ask yourself the big and small questions that will affect your manuscript now and your career for years to come.
If you want a co-partner who will dress, prune and otherwise obsess over your novel the way you do, and you have a couple of weeks for this process to unfold, then by all means contact me today.

At a time when I desperately needed a great editor, faith stepped in and brought Mary into my life. I like to think that writers tell great stories. But editors are the ones who step in to make the story into a good book and this is exactly what working with Mary does. She is wonderful as an editor, motivator and exactly what a writer like me needed. I can’t wait to work with her on my next project.
Through my consultation from Mary McBeth, I have been transformed from a writer into a full fledged artist. Her uncanny ability to connect to me and my work is represented two fold: by her affirmation of my vision as well as the customized plan for me of the promotion and marketing of my book. After just one week of implementation I have already received some great feedback as well as sold more books then I did all year! If it had not been for Mary and her much needed ‘realness’, my book and my vision, would still be sitting on my shelf or on websites where no one could access them. Thanks…
Yes, your work is truly outstanding, your mind is golden and I can feel the power you have in changing people stories into a winner…. i love the way you edit….I went back and reread your notes, you are phenomenal. Stay uplifted Queen.
Wow!! I am impressed. Thank you for the notes also. I really would like to work more with you. I’m still working on AWH2, but I should be finished soon. Please look to hear from me soon. *It is so true…You get what you pay for!
It is my pleasure to openly thank my editor/mentor Mary McBeth. She puts forth well in excess of the price of the paid work by providing priceless advice, attention, support and her knowledge of the business. Without any doubt she has also been a constant motivator and I can’t wait to resume/continue with “our” next projects. We have more work to do. Thank you for everything.
