All the Grammar Editing

in the World Won’t Sell a Rough Story

When I was a boy I lived with my Uncle Percy. He was a man hewn as rugged as the trees he cut down in the Oregon forests. He’d arrive home at night beat tired, but instead of chasing the kids from the room for peace and quiet he’d gather us around and spin incredible yarns. His grammar would fail any English exam, but we didn’t care because we were lost in story.

Changing the editing world

Developmental editing is often skipped due to the cost. I’ve worked over the last three years to change that with Ironclad Outlines. They give every author a huge advantage from word one. But what if you already have your manuscript finished?  


Word by Word

Your manuscript in painstakingly poured over. Characters, plot, motivation, theme, location, problems, and more are examined.


Hazards Identified

Your book is your baby. I find the issues that threaten to harm your baby, and create solutions to solve or avoid them altogether.

Accurate Atlas

Within two weeks you’ll receive a detailed guide to help you on the rest of your writing journey. This is where most editors stop…I’m not most editors.


Story Coaching

We will meet up to three hours and as many email conversations that you need. I’m your mentor every step of the way.

Actionable Creativity

Our work together will actualize your story not mine. If you ask me to guide you to the next level I’ll do it, it’s not easy but worthwhile things never are easy.


Legacy Asset

When we’re finished you will have a book that can engage for 90 years not just a 90 day Amazon algorithm. I want you writing books that span generations.

Why Do I Need An Editor? 

Clark is called a Story Engineer because of his ability to create strong fictional structures that perfectly pairs the author’s vision with the target reader. Clark has the ability to listen to your story and find the connections that you wrote in subconsciously.

This is the single easiest investment to make, and the returns are priceless. If you already write multiple books per year, or you plan to this is your deal.


Make Your Story a Priority.

I certainly will.
