Congratulations! You’ve written a story. Now what?

Whether you’ve written a novel, novella, short story collection, children’s book, or non-fiction book, you’re still not finished. Now is the time to find someone to help polish your masterpiece.

That’s where I come in. As an editor, I can work with you from first to final draft, including the beta reading and planning stages. I offer several packages, including a la carte services, to provide you with exactly what you need to send your book out into the world. So, jump in and see how I can help bridge the gap to publication.


Cayleigh is amazing! She is and always will be my go-to for edits. I’ve written and published two short stories with her help, and now she is working on my debut novel. I couldn’t, and wouldn’t, do them without her. She is knowledgeable and helpful, and she really cares about what you are putting out there for the world to see. Her technique is thorough, but it’s more than that. It’s caring and confidence-building. She wants to help you put your best you out there. That comes through in her comments, notes, and conversations. Editing was a dreaded task when I first got started writing for publication. It’s not anymore thanks to her!

Working with Cayleigh Stickler was an absolute pleasure. Her keen eye for detail, as well as the copy editing rules, meant my novel debuted in the best shape possible. She was always in contact, available for any questions and willing to provide help. Cayleigh took an already great story that was raved about in my beta circles and made it perfect. Dangerous Ways was my largest project to date and her edits were a breeze to get through and I could see the improvements made to my work. I would gladly work with her again (and I plan to) as well as recommend her to anyone looking for their final editor to polish their work.
