Lots of exciting things happening in my editing world.

A new website for my editing services is in the works. If you want to chat about your upcoming editing needs, don't hesitate to write at dedicatededitorATgmailDOTcom.

I have a few openings in August, September, and October. You'll have your choice of dates for November and beyond.

Thanks so much!

Happy December, Kboarders!

While many take time away from writing, others like to schedule ahead for the new year.

I have one opening available right after Christmas, one opening available in January 2018, and one opening available in March 2018. April 2018 and beyond are open as of this posting.

I thank you for your support, and I look forward to helping you with your fiction or non-fiction works. My website is, and my email address is

Enjoy your day,

Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your dear mother. I agree with the others here, and suggest you wait as long as it takes before making any decisions about your current WIP.
When my dear father passed away, it took months for the grief to subside enough for me to think clearly. While I was going through the grieving process, I worked only an hour at a time when I was able.
Be kind to yourself. Give yourself time.
Many hugs,

Thanks for the kind words, Andrew.

I'm filling slots for late January, February, and beyond.

Write to me at for information about how I work.

I'm happy to perform a sample 1,000 word copy/line edit which will include an evaluation to help you improve your writing.

I also provide proofreading services for authors who need another set of experienced eyes on their manuscript before publishing.

Thank you, JE Taylor and Beccaprice.

My next availability is in May. After that, I have two openings in June. July and beyond are open.

Most of my business is repeat business.  My authors know that I care about their stories, and I work very hard to help them polish their stories into something that will do well.

Thanks again, Kboards members.

Absolutely. Whip me 10,000 lashes.  It should have read "PM on its way to you."

I am a fast typist, and I am human.

Thanks for your support.

Nothing is wrong with contractions.  As long as they are used correctly.  ;D

Creating a shortcut in order to eliminate the number of clicks when checking BB status. . .Priceless.

It will be downloaded thousands of times, I'm sure.

Fingers (and toes) crossed.

I truly appreciate every kind word.

I have tried to learn that all of us need to hear good and positive things on a regular basis. That never is truer than when someone is correcting our mistakes.

My October calendar is full. I'm quickly filling the November and December calendars.

Feel free to write me at for more information.

Thanks so much!

Thanks so much for the "bump," Mark. Your new series is very good.

I am now scheduling reservations for October dates.  Should you want more information about how I work, prices, etc., please write me at

Spelling out a contraction before it is used will help define what you are trying to convey in your writing.

The example you gave is an excellent example.  There are others, of course.

Being specific and very clear with your words is essential for readability.

I am so very sorry for your loss, Ty.

I will be thinking of you and praying for you. As someone else posted, I hope you have friends and family around you at this time.

Take care, friend.

Thank you very much, Sstroble, Dasha Logan, and KA Madison.  I appreciate your kinds words here in regards to my services.

I strive to treat every author with the same care.  I will add comments in regards to story and character development as well as all execute any other editing that is needed.

Self-published authors need comprehensive service.  You may not realize what is needed until you have an experienced editor look at your manuscript.

I now have one opening left in August and I am also taking reservations for September and beyond.

Feel free to write me at

Thank you!   (Only one exclamation point, Dasha. Haha)

Congratulations, Becca!  You deserve every good fortune.

I know Heart of Rock was, at times, challenging for you, but you forged ahead and made changes as necessary. You took your time to produce a quality product and now you have a book that is something for which to be very proud.

I just can't stop smiling for you.

Rock on!

Yes, Becca, you are ON for June 3rd.

I will do my best to help with your next story.

I enjoyed working on Heart of Rock very much.  It's destined to become a classic!

I am indeed blessed to have so many loyal authors who continue to use my services repeatedly.

I strive to earn each and every editing opportunity.

I am as passionate about editing as many authors are about writing.

Have a great Easter holiday,

I hope everyone here on Kboards has a wonderful Easter week!

My June calendar has one opening left to be filled.  My May and July calendars are booked solid.

Should you have a book coming due in August, please feel free to send me a note.

Thanks again to all my authors!
