Edit your novel in a membership that takes the guesswork out of the process

so your book gets done faster and writing feels fun again!

Editing a book can feel hard...
...but it doesn't have to be.

Editing your novel can be a painful process. And a never-ending one!

You struggle for days, weeks, even months on end, trying to push through the edits so you can get the book you worked so hard on out into the world.

But you stay stuck.

Maybe you give up. Maybe you put it off, hoping that you'll figure out the secret formula for getting your book edits done someday. Maybe you even accept that "someday" will never come.

Maybe you give up hope.

Don't.

Because there is hope. There is a way to get your edits done that feels aligned, productive, and even FUN.

Want to know how to get those book edits done without pulling your hair out? It's actually simpler than you might think. Because there are only 3 things you really need:

1. Motivation
2. Knowledge
3. Accountability


With these three elements, you'll have:

1. The encouragement you want when editing gets tough and you get stuck.
2. The skills you need to confidently edit your book well.
3. The support you crave from a community of authors who have been there and can help you through it.

That's why I created the Edit with an Editor Membership.

When you join the membership, you'll get all 3 elements in one place. Here's how it will help you:

1. Motivation — You'll get weekly encouragement to stick with your edits with motivation and mindset posts.

2. Knowledge — You'll get weekly live trainings (with replays!) on an aspect of the writing and editing process, plus extra tips and tricks, including periodic in-depth trainings. We'll also be doing a weekly questions thread so you can get any writing or editing questions you have answered — plus you can always ask a question at any time!

3. Accountability — You'll get 24/7 access to a positive, welcoming community to help cheer you on as you make progress on your book! And we'll be doing frequent editing sprints to help you actually get those edits DONE.

I was one of those authors that didn't know if this platform was relevant for authors. I thought only Facebook and Twitter were best, but they're two platforms I barely use anyway and I didnt have fun trying to learn how to use them. Instagram was a platform I had been using since 2018, before I even published a book, and liked that platform much better. Now that I realized the "bookish" community is huge on the platform, this course showed me how to really utilize it to grow my following and to strengthen my brand identity so I know how and what to post authentically.

If you're ready to edit your book in community, learn the skills you need to edit well, and get the motivation to GET IT DONE...

Hi, I'm Melissa Frey

As a professional editor for over two years (and unofficially editing everything I could get my hands on before that), I've seen how much authors struggle when editing their own books.

That's why I created the Edit with an Editor Membership, so you could have a safe space to ask questions as you're editing your book, find motivation to get those edits done, learn more about how to edit your book well, and actually edit your book in a community of like-minded authors.

My mission is to see you edit your book into the amazing novel you pictured in your head! This membership will help.
