Whether your goals involve the pursuit of traditional publication or a more independent road to success via self publishing, I am here to help you polish your work.

As a critique partner and mentor, I’ve helped authors improve their craft and find representation at major literary agencies and achieve publication with the Big 4. I also found an agent for myself via a “cold query,” and I’ve guided others who have done the same.

From query and synopsis services to full manuscript edits and everything in between, I offer something for every budget and every part of an author’s journey to success.

"Rose brings a keen eye for detail to the manuscript, plus a deep understanding of craft and a truly impressive repertoire of reference knowledge that will benefit not only writers of historical and fantasy fiction but anybody looking to create rich and resonant stories."

 "In beta reading my adult historical fantasy novel, Rose provided thoughtful, honest, and detailed feedback geared toward the market that substantially improved my storyline and characters, as well as my chances of attracting an agent in the first pages and holding their attention. I signed with my dream agent, Jennifer Weltz of Jean V. Naggar Literary Agency, in June 2020."
–Olesya Salnikova Gilmore
"Rosie's work on my query letter and synopsis was fantastic. She tightened and trimmed where I was too wordy, rephrased where my language was too diluted, and made every word count. On top of everything else, she got my synopsis down to two pages. I'll definitely be coming back to her for future help."
–Sophia Krich-Brinton
