—Write, Ready, Edit—

This is the roundup of blog posts and off-site resources that will help you write your book (or speech, or app script…), find an editor, and navigate the editing process.

Congratulations! You are on the road to publication. It’s a lot of hard work, and you will be proud of what comes out in the end.

Let’s go.

If you think your project is a good match for my experience and specialties, I’d be happy to talk with you about it. I will even recommend other editors who might be a better match, if that is the case.

I try to be fun to work with, but I promise to give you the full scrutiny of my certified copy editor eyes.

New: Now offering kick-in-the-pants services to help keep your project on track. Some people say that falls under the heading of project management, FYI.
