“Thank you, Michael, for the terrific work you did with Marianne’s Christmas. I was a little apprehensive at first, working with a male editor on a romantic fiction book, but you showed a great understanding and insight into the heart of this story. You also have a great eye for detail and spot writing errors and bad habits that I wasn’t aware of myself.” — Susanne O’Leary, Bestselling Author
Your book, your way, and with peace of mind. No worries.
You’ve labored over your book for hours and hours, weeks and weeks, maybe even months. You’re proud of it. You want it to be the best it can be. So now you’re ready to send it off to an editor.
But to which one?
Well, to me, Michael Hearing, of course. And here’s why . . .
I have the experience – that’s 23 years in the freelance-editing game.
I have the credentials and training – a B.A. in English plus training and in-the-trenches experience as a writing coach and tutor.
I care about quality writing and absolutely love editing – which means, of course, no worries for you when you hire me to edit your writing.
So let me explain . . .
We’re in this together – you, the author, the person who actually gave birth to the book, and me, the editor, the one who will help you send your book out into the world the best it can be. What I don’t do is charge in with my blue (or red) pencil and start butchering. Nope. We work together. We’re partners.
I offer three levels of editing so you can get exactly what you want and need:
Gold – This ranges from mere proofreading to light-to-medium copy editing.
Platinum – At this level, you get editing that ranges from medium-to-heavy copy editing to line editing to light developmental/substantive editing.
Platinum Plus – If you choose this level, you’ll get heavy-duty line editing plus developmental/substantive editing.
You send me a sample of your work, I look it over, and then, together, we decide exactly what it needs. But what you want, of course, is the foremost consideration.
So go ahead: dare to make your book better. Just contact me, Michael Hearing, for some no-worries editing.
