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 twenty years of experience in children’s publishing—more than a decade in the trenches at a Big Five trade imprint and almost as long as a freelance editor—I know the ins and outs of how to craft a query letter, how to find the right agent, and, most importantly, how to develop a manuscript and help a writer create the best possible version of a story.

Please contact me to find out more about my editorial expertise and how I might be able to help you.

Publishers and agents: if you're looking for a project editor, need help with ancillary materials, or have a manuscript that needs adapting please get in touch.
