As a longtime reader and book reviewer, I realize how important the editing process is. Nothing is more distracting to a reader than a book that is riddled with errors. I’ve come across several manuscripts that were good books but they needed a good editor. I have been editing and proofreading on the side for a few years but I thought it’s time to take it to the next level. My love for reading has fueled this desire to help others in their publishing endeavors.
