J. Anderson Coats



J. Anderson Coats, author of THE WICKED AND THE JUST, is an indirect Success Story:

For the longest time, I admired the Erin Murphy Literary Agency from afar, but since they’re closed to unsolicited queries, I never got the chance to approach them.  However, my stalking of MSFV paid off one day when Ammi-Joan Paquette opened submissions just for readers of Authoress’s blog for a two-week window at the end of February 2010. I leaped at the chance and emailed her a query within ten minutes.
What followed was a nine-month courtship of sorts in which I made revisions with the full expectation that it would end in the “thanks but no thanks” email.  But that “no” never came, and the ink wasn’t quite dry on my agency contract when W/J sold to Harcourt.  It was something like ten days between being unagented and my first sale - quite a whirlwind!

AUTHORESS EDITS

AUTHORESS EDITS:  Editorial Services by Authoress

I offer full line-editing services for 3-chapter partials.  Here are the details:



  • The fee is $95 for the first 3 chapters of your manuscript, or as close to 30 pages as possible. (If your chapters are short, you can send as many chapters as add up to approximately 30 pages.)  Please do not send more than 3 chapters if the total page count is over approximately 30.  (A couple of pages over won't matter.)  Please do not send partial chapters (end your submission at the end of a chapter).
  • $50 will be payable upon my agreement to take your project.  As soon as I receive your payment and your project, your place in line will be secured.  The final $45 will be payable upon completion of the project.
  • Payments will be accepted via Paypal.
  • Your project will be added to the queue as soon as I've received both your down payment and your document.  I will let you know when your turn comes up, and you can expect to hear from me within a week after that.
  • Please email me at authoress.edits(at)gmail.com if you would like to hire me.  I will respond to all emails in the order in which they are received.
  • Please also feel free to email me there with any questions you may have.  Please do not send editing questions to my facelesswords account.
  • What you will receive:  A detailed line edit and an editorial letter.  


  • I also offer 3-page critiques for $18, payable up front.  If you'd like some fresh eyes on the opening 3 pages of your novel, I'm your gal.  Email me at authoress.edits(at)gmail.com.

    Additionally, I occasionally offer 75-page line edits for $260.  I will announce these as they become available, and they will be first come, first served.
