We live in an information-saturated world with greater access to reading material than any other time in human history. In such a glutted marketplace of ideas, quality matters more than ever before.

Editing is your first line of quality control in developing excellent written products. You shouldn't entrust your work and reputation to anyone who claims to know those elusive comma rules. Because perfectly placed punctuation is not enough to stand out. Message matters. Presentation matters. Clarity matters. Beauty matters.

Are you ready to take your writing to the next level? You’ve come to the right place. I am a veteran wordsmith who brings decades of editing experience to every project entrusted to my care--and I'm taking new clients.

Check out my new tab, "Editing services" to learn all about what I can do for you!

Tell me, what do you most look for in an writer/editor relationship?

  1. I certainly wish I could afford you Laurel.

    What I would look for in a writer/editor relationship? Hmm, flexibility, honesty, constructive feedback; work with the author for their target audience, not a popular market. Open communications and exchange of ideas would be mandatory.

    Hard to say, I guess it depends on what the author needs.

    1. Indeed, I'm not the cheapest game in town, but my clients say they got a lot of bang for their buck (I've been doing this a long time!).

      Love the list--that's helpful!

  3. When I'm ready for an editor (which I'm betting will be sooner rather than later...but who knows, I'm a writer, the unpredictable tends to happen to me more than not), I'll definitely keep you in mind!

  4. I think I saw you mention this decision on FB. I think. Any hoot, I knew about it. If you'd like to do a little promotion on Writer's Alley to help get the work out feel free to email me.

    1. Thanks, Sheri. That would be wonderful. I'll be in touch soon, once I've met my deadline at the day job.
