If you've written a book, you deserve a huge pat on the back. I think writing is one of the hardest things to do. It takes patience, passion, and endurance. Your work may yet require some polishing, though. You may very well need a second set of eyes on it, and that's what I'm here for. I offer professional editorial services for writers whose works are ready for the next step. Whether it's your story development, structuring, or grammar that needs cleaning up, I can help. And with several years' experience as an editor at one of the top trade publishers in the world, I'm qualified to do so.
Readers are leaders & leaders are readers
If I had a motto, I think it'd be "Readers are leaders and leaders are readers." It's a slight distortion of something Harry Truman said and I'm not sure who originally distorted it, but I've always loved that saying, and I drop it whenever I can (much to the chagrin of friends and family). It's because I believe reading is one of the things that make the world go 'round. It doesn't get much better than curling up with a blanket and a cup of coffee and a good book (or iPad, Nook, Kindle, etc.). Reading can be escapism at its best or an enlightening, educational experience. But what nobody wants is to sit down with a book and be distracted by bad writing, grammatical errors, or just plain sloppy storytelling. You wouldn't serve a soufflé half-cooked, right? Or hang a sketch and say it's a painting? In the same vein, you can't necessarily call a book readable just because it's been written. So if you're looking for someone who can help you get your work into the best shape possible, drop me a line. You've followed your dream and completed what has probably been one of the most difficult undertakings in your life, so you owe it to yourself ... and to the future leaders of the world.
