Writing a book is no easy task, ask anyone who’s ever tried it.

So scary, it should come with a warning label, ‘Don’t Try This Alone!’

That’s why there are manuscript editors.

Sleuth-like literary Sherlocks, who pour over every word and whim of your writing.

And make it better, bolder and, hopefully, best-selling.

I’m proud to be one of them.

Please, don’t do it alone. Sharing is the best way. Believe me, it’s the only way.

You’ve probably got some gems on the page already. They just need caressing.

Let's shape and shine 'em. I’d love to hear from you.
