Welcome to Something Bookish!

Looking to have your manuscript reviewed by a grammar ninja and book expert with insider knowledge of the bookselling trade? Something Bookish provides manuscript evaluations, substantive editing, copyediting, and proofreading. Let’s have a conversation and see if I’m the right editor for your project.

“I’ve enjoyed working with Stacey on manuscripts as she has an acute editorial eye, a forthright approach, and a fearlessness that is essential to a productive substantive edit. She understands the fundamental aspects of a manuscript: story, characterization, dialogue, description and pacing. As well, she has a profound knowledge of the YA/middle grade market.”

Stacey has an uncanny ability to put her fingers right on your deepest fears and greatest blindspots of your story. She sees the tale as it is and as it could be. Her feedback is insightful, respectful, and actionable, without ever a hint of trying to change the story into something it’s not. There is no one I trust more with my stories than Stacey Kondla.”
