My Professional Editing Protects:
Your Story - Your Vision - Your Voice
I have provided editorial services as a freelance editor for writers from around the world and for book publishers in the United States and Canada for over two decades.
My assistance has helped numerous writers achieve success, whether for publishing a single book to fulfill a personal journey or creating a career as a commerical series writer. Click here to see just a few of the successes of my writing clients.
My article "The Writer's Secret Weapon" was featured in the "Novel & Short Story Writer's Market" published by Writer's Digest. I was profiled as a leading editor for inspiring young writers in Writer's Digest's "The Market Guide for Young Writers." My personal writing has been published in the United States and Europe--from short fiction to human interest articles, and from mainstream to genre, including humor, mystery, romance, satire and science fiction.
I was Senior Editor for Writer's Intl. Forum, a magazine instrumental in
helping authors world-wide to become more successful in their writing endeavors, which placed in Writer's
Digest's Top 50 Fiction Markets
for three consecutive years.
You may not feel ready for the world of publishing, or maybe you simply need some assistance on a specific writing project.

Becoming a writer can seem daunting--but it doesn't need to be! Let me edit the opening 2,000 to 3,500 words of your manuscript (to the end of a scene or chapter). An Initial Evaluation is charged at my normal fee rate because it is not a "sales pitch" letter, but a full example of how I edit a client's manuscript.
Just multiply my 2-cents a word fee by the number of words you are sending (minimum $45) and include a bit of information about yourself and your story. Click here to request an edit for YOUR story.
