Allow me to help polish your manuscript for submissions or self-publishing. I love to work with picture books, middle grade, and YA fiction authors. I also enjoy adult content.
What My Clients Are Saying
I highly recommend Urania Smith’s editing services. Her insight and professionalism are top-notch. Even when I feel my book is as good as I can get it, she offers new ways to take the story further. She provides clear and concise examples of how I can do that. I trust Urania and know my manuscripts are in good hands when I choose to use her services.
—Katie Otey, author of the upcoming EVERY OTHER CHRISTMAS
Urania is a superb editor. I had the pleasure of working with her over a 2 month period of time to edit a new children’s book. Not only did she help me to develop clarity in my writing, but her feedback challenged me to tap into a higher level of creativity with each edit. In addition to the high-quality editing, Urania’s professionalism and in-depth knowledge of what makes a book a great read contributed to a fantastic overall experience. As an author and publisher, I am routinely asked about recommendations for editors. Without question, Urania is the first person that I recommend. She has the skill and is excellent to work with!

Query Letter Package: I can help develop your query letter and sample chapters. Also, research agents and editors who best fit your project.
Sensitivity/Expert Cultural Reader: I will only provide feedback for books containing African American topics. I suggest hiring more than one expert reader since no two people have the exact same lived experience.
