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.


I highly recommend Mary McBeth the Urban Fiction Editor.  She is very easy to work with and she knows her stuff.  She edited my work and talked to me about it.  As a science fiction writer it was pleasure to work with an editor who understands multiple genres.   Jeff Carroll
