Editing, formatting, and design for indie


My services range from analyzing your manuscript to formatting for publication, with everything in between.





My name is Danielle Fine. I fell in love with language when I was three years old, and it's proved a love affair to last a lifetime.

I adore everything about the art of story telling--the words, the pictures you can make with them, and the story they come together to create.

I know how much blood is left on the page when the book is done, and how much courage it takes to capture a part of yourself in ink and send it out into the world.

It's my job to make sure your book has its hair combed and face washed when it goes.

I love my job.



“I count myself extremely fortunate to have been entrusted to Danielle's editorial skills with my debut novel Keir, and grateful that I've been able to seek her guidance with subsequent works. She has a keen eye when it comes to finding plot holes, trimming unnecessary prose, increasing tension in a piece and brainstorming problems. I've no doubt that many of the good reviews my works have collected are due to her skills as an editor. My two shorts have also benefitted from her awesome talent for eye-catching and compelling covers, and her ability to pick up key elements of a story and translate it into artwork. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with her over the past year. Highly recommended.”

“Trustworthy, dedicated and affordable. Dani has edited two of my manuscripts, designed a beautiful custom book cover for me and created a stunning book trailer I love. She goes above and beyond to help her authors succeed. Extremely talented and an absolute pleasure to work with! I highly recommend her.”

“Finding an editor, for me, is almost like finding a soul mate—though one that wasn’t created to love me but to love my story. Working with Danielle actually changed a lot of things for me. She didn’t just look at my story—she also invested time in understanding my characters, their motivations and their individual stories. She seriously edits, but she also always asks me how I feel about it and we deliberate over everything. In Danielle, I’ve found so many benefits that I write about the importance of having her in my life pretty much every time I get to do a guest interview or an editorial for someone else’s blog. If you’re looking for an editor, one like Danielle is rare and I’m lucky enough to have her as mine. "

"Danielle is a fantastic editor/designer. She was able to take the train wreck of a story I wrote and help me turn it into something people want to read...hopefully. In short, she's pretty amazing and I can't thank her enough for taking me on as a client. "
                                                                                                                                                                        --Ken Lange           



“I can't recommend Danielle Fine's editing services enough. In fact, I've told several fellow writers about how helpful she has been for me. From formatting, to content editing, to copyediting, she does it all, while keeping in mind the author's intent and vision. I plan on continuing to use her services for many projects in future. Thanks so much for everything! "
                                                                                                                    --Amanda Linsmeier


Last year, I wrote a quirky science fiction romance thriller. Resurrected and the two books I subsequently wrote to form a trilogy blended so many genres that depicting the novel’s mood and genres proved to be extremely difficult. I went through two different covers for Resurrected before contacting Danielle to have the entire series rebranded.


Dani not only captured the romance, science fiction, and thriller elements of the novel on the cover for Resurrected, but she did each quickly and provided banners for me to use in marketing and social media at no extra cost. The entire trilogy now has beautiful covers that I absolutely love, and for the first time, I feel like the series’ covers represent the novels well.


I highly recommend her design services, especially for science-fiction romance authors, because this isn’t a genre a lot of designers have experience with. Danielle has worked with a number of SFR authors and knows current trends in sci-fi romance design, and that experience makes her an asset to us SFR writers!
