Who I work with

Writing a book or maintaining a website/blog is a daunting task.  In addition to the “idea”, authors and bloggers have to worry about audience, voice, grammar, punctuation, structure… it can seem overwhelming!  

If you’re someone who just wants to share stories with the world, we should chat.  I’d love to help you concentrate on what you do best. 


A bit about Lora...

In college, I studied three things – literature, history, and psychology.  While this is an unconventional combination, it’s great for my clients.  I’m familiar with a variety of writing styles, and have a strong knowledge base that enables me to help you overcome the challenges of proofreading, fact checking, and document structure.  I handle the “boring” stuff so you don’t have to. 

I read – a lot – and realized I proofread and analyze everything from books to blogs to instruction manuals.  So i figured out instead of only sharing through book reviews, I wanted to help creators improve their content.  And Magnolia Publications was born. 

Success is within reach

If this sounds like your dream...

Imagine if you were able to write what you love without worrying about the end result.  By working with me in a judgement free zone, I can help.  Sometimes clients have a fantastic idea but aren’t feel there’s something missing from their writing.  Others have an entire book written but are uncertain if they’re sharing the story in the best way possible.  Some just need a final polish to their manuscript, or don’t know how what to do to market their book.  

That’s where I come in.  I offer services ranging from manuscript evaluations to full developmental edits to copy edits to social media posting consultations and everything in between.

Editing Service

If you’re looking for help from start to finish, from outline development and structural feedback through proofreading and help with social media post ideas, let’s chat about your needs to craft your custom solution.  Choose from full suite or á la carte. 

PA Service

Sometimes you just need to concentrate on you next (or first) book without all those pesky admin tasks. I offer a range of author PA services. Learn more about how I can help you! 

Book Review

Your book is already published?  Hooray!  

I review books for free and am happy to read yours.  If your book is on KU, I can read there; otherwise, I do ask a copy be sent to me since otherwise I’m spending money for my service. 

Book Review Blog

Books Besties Booze

If you’re here because you met me and my best friend Logan at a book event and are looking for some reviews, head over to our blog.  We love a good book and a great cocktail, so we combined the two, pairing themed cocktails with some of our favorite (or not-so-favorite) books.
