Need a detailed, professional, low-cost, experienced book editor? You’ve come to the right place!

I’ve had a number of interesting jobs throughout my life. I have always loved reading. Several years ago, through the Internet, I met some wonderful authors and helped a few out. That began my new career as a book editor. I’ve edited short stories, novellas, synopses, full-length novels and done final line edits on books. I do editing work independently and also for publishing houses. I’m an active member of an organization called the Paranormal Romance Guild (PRG) where at least half of the members are authors (many are Indie/self-published). I am also the PRG’s ‘Information Officer’.

I’ve gotten inside information about all of the work (and joy) that is involved in being an author. I’ve found that most new authors cannot afford the high cost of editing services (although crucial), so I decided to put my excellent proofreading, copy-editing and English skills to work and help bridge that gap for them with much more reasonably priced editing services and payment methods. I’ve been a mega-reader since middle school and a supporter of all authors.

I do not read/edit all genres of books. Right now, these are the types of books that I would take under consideration for editing:

 Young children’s books; Middle grade; Teen books;

Superhero fantasy; Sci-fi; Action/Adventure; some Non-fiction; Business; Educational; Websites; Articles.

Romances: paranormal, contemporary, romantic suspense, erotic romance {romantica}, urban fantasy, young adult, new adult.

Feel free to contact me about YOUR book, even if it’s not in the genres listed above – I would be happy to consider it. 

I can also edit a blurb/synopsis, query letter, or blog for you.

Remember, every error is annoying for your reader and disrupts their reading rhythm. By eliminating any sticky grammar spots, you will have a better chance of getting your message across to your reader and not ending up in the junk pile.

Why be concerned with punctuation?

An English professor wrote this phrase on a blackboard:

“A woman without her man is nothing” and asked his students to punctuate it correctly.

All of the males in the class wrote: “A woman, without her man, is nothing.”

All of the females in the class wrote: “A woman: without her, man is nothing.”

Borrowed from multiple sources.

Ah, the power of punctuation.
