I've used a lot of editors over the years, and There for You Editing is wonderful. I've always received a quick turn around for my manuscripts and quality work. I highly recommend this editor.
I am an editor of and consultant for academic and creative writing. I can help students doing papers or freelance writers. I can help you finish a project you've been procrastinating on or help you start and finish the project you've always dreamed of. I've been hired by people of all ages and abilities. I have worked with a wide range of people from published, award-winning poets and other writers to Ivy League professors and doctoral students. I have also worked as an English tutor with high school and college students for over 20 years. I teach workshops on publishing and have worked at several presses. As an editor in the creative writing field people appreciate my directness and ability to encourage his or her distinct voice for each piece. In an academic and tutoring assignment it's my organizational skills and my ability to look for themes, find cohesion, and cut repetitions that helps writers the most. Finally, I am fair and honest with my estimates and communicate any possible fluctuations with my commitments in a timely manner.
I hired Christie to transform my elderly father's blog posts into a memoir and she did an outstanding job. She had a deft touch, superb copy-editing skills and the insight and intuition needed to keep my father's voice while smoothing out the rough spots. She also designed the book cover, found a publisher and got it done in time for my father's 85th birthday, when we had a launch party for "Skydiving into Medical School and Other Adventures," and we made a dying man extremely happy. The book would have been only an old man's dream if not for Christie.
I've worked with Monica for nearly 15 years on projects ranging from YA books to technical articles in trade magazines. I appreciate her careful evaluation of editorial content, attention to detail, proactive communication and on-time delivery. The last few projects have involved fiction and nonfiction book editing for my publishing company. As usual, she came in on time and under budget. I strongly recommend her to writers, editors, and publishers looking for a professional copy editor or proofreader.
Fran helps me with copyediting and proofreading on a regular basis. I can always count on her to do a thorough job. She is also very proactive about asking questions and I trust her to work directly with my own clients. If you need a solid editor or proofreader, I highly recommend Fran.
Sarah is my go-to editor/proofreader for every project; from resume design and professional writing, to academic assignments and even creative pieces. I have absolute trust in her knowledge of grammar and punctuation, as well as her eye for layout and her ear for perfect word choice. She is direct and tactful in communicating her recommendations. Our interactions have been fun, smart and time efficient. I always come away feeling uplifted.
I specialize in editing manuscripts with a economic focus. I edit not only for grammar and punctuation but also style and content. My customers all appreciate my professionalism and the fact that a project always comes in on time! All my work is done via the internet and is done primarily with MSWord track changes.

To the people who know me I am the best editor available who never actually majored at college in English. This allows people to get a rather high quality result for less, as I do currently charge lower fees due to suffered brain damage that causes memory issues and bad insomnia.

I have been the editor of an independent, literary press publishing fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry for the last 10 years. In that role, I've seen so many good books rejected because of issues that could have been solved with the help of an editor. My freelance book editing service is designed to help new and established authors solve these issues and realize their books' full potentials. With me as your editor, you get someone who is not only meticulous about grammar and punctuation, sentence structure and tone, character and plot development, but someone who is deeply devoted to the written word and to helping authors see their visions through. I am a writer too, so I also understand the highs and lows of the writing process and can share my techniques for pushing through moments of doubt and blocks. Humor, a friendly partnership, esoteric conversations about writing, take-home exercises, and honest criticism and feedback are all part of the package! Whether you are interested in self-publishing or are seeking representation, I know both publishing arenas quite well. When your book is ready, I can help you navigate these worlds to find the right fit. I also work with several book designers, so if you are self-pubishing, you may want to take advantage of their talents. I offer a variety of services: Manuscripts Critiques, Developmental Editing, Copyediting, and Writing Coaching. I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about your book!
My passion for the English language is reflected in the pieces I edit, proofread, review, and write.
We used Wendy for copy-editing and voice-over work. Her quick response time, professionalism and expertise were exactly what we needed. As a small, start-up, we needed someone to guide us and deliver quick results. Wendy did just that! She was able to work with tight deadlines and provide constructive criticism for us to improve our marketing materials and strategy.
After eleven books together, I can't imagine working with anyone else. From a technical point of view, she doesn't just go through with a red pen (or comment tool), she explains her reasoning, especially if the correction could go in different directions. That extra information not only helps me in that book, it sticks in my head and I like to think my writing has improved as a result. On the creative side, she provides sound input on consistency and story development, ensuring that my characters stay true to themselves. This is no easy task in a true series where the same core cast appears frequently. I use spreadsheets and flowcharts to keep them all safe, and knowing she's as invested in them makes her my first and only choice in editors. But, I think my favorite part of working with Jessica is getting little insights into how the book made her feel. We're all readers, aren't we? A book can be technically sound, but is it enjoyable? Jessica will leave comments in the draft on parts that really struck her (good and bad), and summarize her overall impression in a way that is both constructive and encouraging.
