Writing is a
solitary endeavor.

Becoming a published author takes a team.

Do you have the seed of an idea for a children's book and want to know more about the industry? Does your critique group love your manuscript, and now you're wondering what the next step is? Does your manuscript need a big picture edit or polishing before it's ready for submission?


Catherine Frank Editorial Services, LLC, can offer guidance, editorial feedback, and serve as a general liaison between you and the sometimes confusing world of children's publishing. I can help you turn the dream of "just wanting to be published" into a reality.

With more than a decade of experience in the trenches at Viking Children's Books working on numerous award-winning books, I know the ins and outs of how to craft a query letter, how to find the right agent, and—most importantly—how to help an author improve a manuscript so that it's the best it can possibly be.
