Welcome to Adirondack Editing!
You’ve been staring at your book for months, if not years. You’ve revised and rewritten as needed. You can’t look at it another time without going cross-eyed, and even if you did, you probably wouldn’t even see the errors that might be there. You’re all set to send it to a publisher or self-publish—you think. That’s where I come in.
You need a pair of fresh eyes.
Spell check can’t give you the human quality of determining the context of your words:
- There, their, or they're?
- Caret, karet, carat, or carrot?
- It's or its?
- Passed or past?
- Aisle, I'll, or isle?
- Peek, peak, or pique?
Adirondack Editing offers professional, affordable freelance proofreading, copyediting, and developmental editing for fiction and non-fiction books.
- Did you really say what you meant to say?
- Did you use the best noun or verb for the situation?
- Is your book ready for publication?
And if you need it tomorrow—literally!—I can do that, too.
I also offer other services to writers: Manuscript Extraction (text analysis) and stand-alone Manuscript Evaluation. These are explained on my Non-Editing Services page.
In 2015, 47% of my clients were repeat customers.
Will you be one in 2016?
