It’s a long way from imagination to the page. You might be a born storyteller, but nobody was born knowing how to write a novel.

And that’s okay.

It doesn’t matter if you’re new at this or have a few book drafts under your belt (or hidden away in a desk drawer). 

I customize my editing services to meet your needs, your story, your writing goals, which means you’ll get personal, specific feedback targeted to improve your manuscript and your skills for this and every draft you write from now on.

Are you ready to take your story to a higher level?

Julia’s editing was tremendously helpful. Because of her feedback, I was able to take action and make high value changes in real specific spots. I feel really enabled to go and make it better. It was all just incredibly helpful. — Jim Eustace, author of New West

Working with Julia Blair has been an absolute blessing. She is professional, kind, and has an amazing ability to hone in on soft spots in a way that blows me away. I have no idea where my novel would be—or where I would be as a writer—without her superb guidance.” — Allison Fairhurst, SGCE. Author of Life to Death: Saving Anna

Julia helped me focus my attention where it needed to be focused and figure out what areas I needed to work on. I really appreciated that. — G. McCracken. Author of St. Christopher’s: Bound to the Past
