Tighten up your manuscript. Refresh your website and social presence. Self-publish a professional, polished book. It’s time to make it happen.

I started In the Margins to support fiction authors in their creative journey.

Whether you need help telling your story or you need help telling your story, I'm with you 'til the last page.

Let's make some changes.

Following a thorough read through of your manuscript, I'll provide detailed marginal notes, light in-line copy edits, and a letter summarizing my feedback to serve as a guide as you write your next draft.


Author Website Critique or Consultation

It's time for a refresh.

We’re told not to judge a book by its cover, but who listens to that old advice? Your website is the cover to your story—make sure your readers are jumping to open the book and turn the page.

I’ll review your existing pages and provide you with detailed feedback about what is working for you, possible additions (or subtractions!), organization/flow adjustments, and light copy edits.


Self-Marketing Strategy

Build your brand
and connect with your readers.

Have you thought about your brand as an author? Set a clear strategy and manageable goals that will help you better connect with your readers and promote your book.

Not everyone loves social media. I help those who are not sure how to cultivate an online presence evaluate the best places to begin based on their personal comfort level online.

Your Next Chapter Starts Here

You know when you go to a car wash and you come out the other end and feel gobsmacked at how clean they were able to get the car? That’s the effect Kayleigh has on any piece of work she touches.

Kayleigh is a skilled editor and has performed some good editing for me in the development of my first book. She was reliable, gave good advice, and provided quality work. I highly recommend her.

Rob L.

Just wow.

Your developmental edits are out of this world.  Specific. Detailed. To the point. Yet still felt encouraging.  Very directive.
