Welcome to Adirondack Editing

In 2014, 53% of my clients were repeat customers.  Will you be one in 2015?


So, 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.

I've got an eagle eye for errors!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 copyediting 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? 

Get the professional answers to those important questions at an extremely reasonable price in a warm, friendly, engaging manner that will assist you to be the best writer you can be.  And if you need it tomorrow—literally!—I can do that, too.
