Book Editing

All authors need professional editing. That goes for professionals, novices, those with conventional publishers and those who self-publish. Why? Because it is perfectly natural for authors to see and feel their work so passionately from their own hearts and minds that they become clouded to the kinds of problems that readers would recognize. They get too close to their work—too comfortable. That’s normal. Problems that can creep into even the most skilled literary projects include verbosity, mixed tenses, run-on sentences, misplaced modifiers, passive sentences, ideas that are familiar to the author but not to the reader, and more.

I would be happy to edit your book (or short story, pamphlet, report, novella or screenplay). As long as you’ve got a few weeks to spare (editing assignments can sometimes be time-consuming), I can get your work into the best-possible shape for publication. You'd be hard-pressed to find more competitive rates. Don't believe me? Do a little research! (You're probably good at that anyway.) Rates are based on the length of your work and a four-page sample of your pre-edited project. To help you decide, I'll do a three-page edit free of charge so that you can see my editing style, approach and perspective. (Please make sure your pages are double-spaced.) Contact me for details. What’s more, you don’t pay until after I email the edited document back to you.

You created your book with a lot of heart and soul. And perhaps you've already decided to make sure it's well edited. Now what you need to do is show the world how serious you are. Authors need to get the word out and raise the interest level for their work. If you're interested, contact me to discuss additional promotional services such as press releases, testimonial research and more.
