Services: Author & Editorial

Here are a few rather nice endorsements for my editing, which I received lately!

Laurie Winslow Sargent is one of the best editors I’ve worked with in my 40+ year career. She is professional in every way, kind, helpful and always committed to being faithful to the writer’s voice. She has a great sense of humor as well as insight into just the right way to express an idea. I also recommend her for a PR makeover and for writing tag lines that express one’s professional direction and essence. (Karen O’Connor, karenoconnor.com, Harvest House Author and Writing Mentor.)

Karen O’Connor is an awesome writer. Check out her zillion books! I enjoyed editing her articles for a multi-author blog for several years, and articles by this talented author as well, Heidi McLaughlin.

Laurie makes my words come alive. She does not change my story or my personality, but she brings color and vision to my words. Laurie knows our words are personal so she crafts her edits with grace. But beware, she will not let you settle for less than the best. I was fortunate to have her edit my articles in FINDING GOD DAILY. I know you will pat yourself on the back when you allow Laurie to help you shape your words. (Heidi McLaughlin, heartconnection.ca)

I am currently editing chapters in an amazing true crime story for another author. It gives me great pleasure to help writers organize their words for most impact. For Finding God Daily I also enjoyed finding creative pictures and videos, and creating titles that did a bit of SEO magic so my authors’ great articles could easily be found and enjoyed.

If you have an editing project you’d like me to consider helping you with (I usually charge a per-page rate) feel free to contact me.

As for Karen and Heidi’s sweet words for me, I say: thanks!
