A Book Editing Philosophy of Sorts
Since 1999, I have assisted writers in maximizing their creative potential and making their books a reality. Today I stand ready to help you in your book venture.
Every book manuscript, whatever the genre, involves at least one story that needs to be told appropriately, engagingly, and effectively. I work from the core conviction that a book’s best chance of success comes through well-informed editorial oversight. Accordingly, as your book editor I focus on the fine honing of all aspects of the writing and story structure.
Books I’ve edited have been praised by a vast array of prominent reviewers, fans, writers, artists, producers, and critics.
Should You Hire Me as Your Book Editor
Once hired, I undertake a head-to-toe edit of your book manuscript. My book editing approach is comprehensive and deep. Typically editing, copy editing, and proofreading are separate functions. In effect, however, because of my instinctively elemental style of engagement with the written word, I function as an editor, copy editor, and proofreader in one.
You may request a hardcopy edit, although most clients choose an onscreen edit using Word’s Track Changes feature. My editing fee is 6 cents per word (for example, $4,800 for an 80,000-word book manuscript). Payment is made by check; I no longer accept Paypal.
I work under a standard editing agreement that may be tweaked here and there to accommodate our mutual preferences.
