About this pro
Merry was great to work with. She was thorough and provided edits in a timely fashion. Really appreciated her thoughtfulness when reviewing my manuscriptJun 22, 2015Verified
Merry was incredible! She was fast, comprehensive and extremely helpful in editing my book. She is very fair with her prices, which was great because I don't have much to shell out. Merry also was more than happy to give me a few helpful tips as I am a new writer. I obviously wholeheartedly recommend her.Dec 17, 2014Verified

- How did you get started doing this type of work?I didn't decide to get into writing as a way of life. It surfaced as a natural-born ability. You take what you get and you run with it. I've been "running with it" for more than 35 years now!
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Be patient. Good editing doesn't happen overnight. Don't wait until a deadline rears its ugly head to enlist an editor's services. As a writer, you know the time it has taken you to collect your thoughts and get them on paper. Big projects, 100,000 words+, may take a month or more to edit. Make your editor happy ... plan ahead.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?I wish authors realized the value of having an editor. An editor is more than a human spell-checker or fastidious proofreader. A good editor catches inconsistencies, pinpoints the strengths and weaknesses of your manuscript, and is often brutally honest. When you hire an editor, you are hiring a professional. Expect great work.
