  • Happy Holidays!

    In this time of spiraling anxiety, I hope everyone can take a moment to connect, center yourself, enjoy time with family, have some nice food and drink, kick back… It’s been a brute of a year! However, I’m grateful to still be working with some great clients, including a print magazine that is still going […]

    In “times of trouble,” as Paul McCartney put it once, we all need a little Beatles reminiscing. Here’s Paul looking back on his friendship with John and George. https://www.npr.org/player/embed/945390087/945578848 And… Smashwords started its End of Year sale early this time!

  • New Service: a Flat Rate for Developmental Editing!

    Silly me… I should have notified folks that I was back from my holiday break. Well, now I am officially doing so, and I have a new offering for writers who are looking for developmental editing on their manuscripts only—writers new to self-publishing and authors of first books may particularly need this. So, for developmental […]

  • Happy Holidays!

    It’s been a busy year for editing. I realize that I have copyedited or proofread at least 35 books, as well as stepping up my work for a bi-monthly local magazine, which continues. It hasn’t been a great year for my own writing, but that’s OK. Last year was. We can all use a break. […]

  • Rate Drop!

    The Dow is not the only thing that’s dropping… I wanted to make sure my rates were in line with other editing services out there and so, starting today, I decided to lower copyediting rates across the board to a very affordable .006 per word as we head into the fall. Check out my Rates […]

  • Too Darned Hot :) New 10% Off Deal All Summer Starts Now!

    We’ve had VERY unusual weather for the Bay Area this week — it was 97 degrees in San Francisco yesterday, and a similar temperature today. I’m wishing I was at the seaside with a bucket and spade! My spring sale was good. A new client called B.W. McKay had me copyedit two of his long […]

This applies to short jobs as well as long ones, but does not apply to proofreading. New clients only, please. […]

  • Some Recent Books I’ve Edited

    I’m lucky to have great clients find me for copy editing or proofreading. I wanted to briefly mention a couple of books that I really enjoyed working on recently. East Coast writer Lucy J. Madison is a new author to me, but she has published several lesbian romances, including Personal Foul, a sports romance. I […]
