Welcome to my website! I've been a book editor since 1979 and have edited 38 national best sellers. Since 1989 I have devoted my practice to new authors.
How may I help you? I will give you everything you'll need to create a much-improved second draft. I write detailed notes in the margins of your project and compose a comprehensive critique to guide you through your revisions.
I promise to be honest with you. I frame all my remarks in a positive way, to support and improve your writing skills.
I will remain available to you as you revise your manuscript, to answer questions and offer feedback.
My turnaround time is between two and three weeks for an average-length manuscript.
I also line-edit manuscripts. I've had a fellowship in writing from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
If you have a commercial-quality manuscript that is production ready, I will circulate it under my letterhead.
I base my fee on word count. Please send your word count to my e-mail address, and I will get right back to you. You can reserve time on my work calendar by sending me your manuscript and a check for my editorial fee. I look forward to working with you!
