  • 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 […]

  • 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. […]

  • A Fiery Summer

  • Book Descriptions Matter

    As a writer, I have often gone back and revised my Amazon book descriptions. It’s not always easy to give an accurate sense of your own work. Sometimes it seems like boasting, or more often the description becomes too long and rambling or too short and terse. A client recently asked me for help with […]

  • 2012 in review–Happy New Year!

    I am touched that EditforIndies.com got quite a bit of traffic in 2012, especially as I only started blogging in February. Thanks to all the clients who made this year a success. I hope to work with some of you again in 2013. (And also to blog more!) Here’s an excerpt: The new Boeing 787 […]
