Overview

Reviews (1)
I specialize in editing non-fiction books on history, art history, biographies, popular science, and business. With ten years in the editing and publishing industry, I have worked on hundreds of book projects, academic dissertations, and corporate documents.

Whether it's building compelling arguments or fixing pesky typos, we'll work together to make you proud of your new book. This means looking at your goals, the standards in your industry or genre, and your target market to create an engaging and professional product. We'll bring out the strengths in your manuscript and hammer out the issues to leave a polished final draft that truly reflects your vision.


I've been fortunate to work with accomplished and talented authors. Here's what they've said:

"I’ve written five books, all with Eric as the editor, and he has largely been the reason for their quality and success. Eric made the editing process painless and effective, but his help extended to much more than just editing: he took an active role in suggesting improvements and strategies. With Eric’s help, Mastering Online Marketing became the polished, professional book I had envisioned."
- Magnus Unemyr, author of 'Mastering Online Marketing' and others

“I enjoyed working with Eric. His editing work was excellent and he came up with several suggestions that I would not have thought of on my own. Everything was completed in a timely manner. The only change I will make for my next book is connecting with him earlier in the process.”
– John Cameron, author of 'Rock Solid: How to Strengthen Your Company'

"Eric’s editing is smart. His keen eye, attention to details and command of the English language helped my sentences and ideas get clearer and more precise throughout my book. I appreciated the first round of the editorial evaluation. This gave me a chance to better structure my book, before going into his final editing service. And now after he has gone through the book with a fine comb, I feel confident putting it out into the world. I highly recommend his services.”
– Sue Vittner, author of 'From Your Vision Board to Your Bedroom'

Work experience

Editor

Self-employed
April, 2012 – Present (over 7 years)

I work with authors to develop and refine their manuscripts through editing, coaching, and publishing preparation. Over hundreds of manuscripts, I've worked with individual authors, publishing companies, and non-profit organizations to ensure their projects are crisp, engaging, and professional.

Managing Editor

Innovate Development
January, 2013 – May, 2016 (over 3 years)

Created and managed an online news agency focused on innovative technologies, projects, and approaches in the humanitarian and international development sector.

Author Account Manager

FriesenPress
January, 2011 – April, 2012 (about 1 year)

Assisted up to fifty concurrent authors as they navigated the self-publishing process. This included preparing their manuscript, liaising with editors and designers, and pushing their book into the right distribution channels. Working closely with authors was a great way to learn about the unique hurdles each person faces as they complete the publication process and move into the marketing phase. I was grateful to experience such a wide range of approaches to writing and to see the amazing breadth of ideas that authors bring to their projects.

Graduate Teaching Assistant

University of Victoria
September, 2007 – April, 2009 (over 1 year)

Taught and tutored for undergraduate courses in art history and film history.
