I'M MOVING. PLEASE SEE MY NEW HOME PAGE at:
Hello, and thanks for stopping by my humble website. This brief Home page is just a short introduction; you'll find the "meat" of the site via the page links to the left.
I'm an author and freelance editor, and I work with many published and aspiring authors.
I'm currently accepting new editing clients, with a specialization in fiction (excluding romance and chick-lit), but I will consider non-fiction, especially narrative non-fiction such as memoirs.
Look Inside Yourself
Okay, so you're a writer who's ready to pursue your dream, to be able to say, "I am a published author." Now what?
Frankly, if you hope to publish via traditional outlets, you need an editor to help you polish your work until it will shine in the eyes of an agent. Don't take this personally; we all need editors.
We're too close to our own work, and we often make mistakes that belie our skill level, meaning we know better, but we read right over those mistakes when self-editing. We erect too many psychological barriers and lose all sense of objectivity about our own work.
It's rather as the old saw tells us: "Forest? What forest? I don't see no stinkin' forest. All those darned trees are in the way!"
I might be able to help you see through your trees to discover the forest within. Please click on the Rates & Services link to the left. There, you'll be guided to an online document that spells out my services and rates in detail. These details are important to your writing career, so please read carefully.
I'd love to know about your visit; please sign in to my Guest Book.

You'll also find access to several other sites, both mine and general writers' sites, via the Links link.
I look forward to speaking with you, and be sure to check out my blog at: Diamond Perspective: On Writing
