Overview

NEW: As of June 2022, because I've accepted a challenging new day job, I am limiting my availability to copy editing for clients who have previous professional writing experience. Please view Reedsy's excellent free resources (or shoot me a message) to learn about copy editing versus other types of editing.

--

I'm an AP-trained copy editor and developmental editor with experience as a reporter, online producer, and corporate writer/editor. With me on the case, your reader will never be distracted by errors or inconsistencies; they'll just see your work as you intended it to be seen.

I am most interested in nonfiction and the social sciences. The books I have edited to date have largely been in education, history, and self-help. I have substantial experience working with nonnative speakers of English and I have copy edited hundreds of papers for academic journals.

"As a published author, I’ve worked with several editors over the years and Eric is one of the best. He digs deep to understand content, has a great eye for ways to make any text better, and doesn’t let anything slip past him. He’s also a great writer himself, so he can lend a hand with a better turn of a phrase as needed. I’d recommend Eric to anyone in need of freelance writing or editing." — Bryan Goodwin, President & CEO, McREL International

"I wrote a 500-page history while quarantined with a working spouse and a two-year-old. I was in no mood to manage manuscript preparation on my own. Eric rid the MS of typos and formatting inconsistencies, even in difficult technical terminology. He made wording suggestions that respected my subject and style and returned everything ahead of schedule, shaving weeks if not months off the process.” — Dr. Christopher England, Lecturer, Loyola University Maryland

I appreciated Eric's direct feedback on my work. He was able to see the areas that needed developing and point me in the right direction. Even after several readings Eric kept a cool eye on what needed to be done. The result is that the pieces I wrote have become a whole.

Eric really knows his craft and takes no prisoners. He will hunt down every reference, and won't let any ambiguous antecedents fly in your prose. Although a bit of a brutal process, a necessary one to turn out a truly legitimate book to the marketplace - and he is HELPING you! Eric will put in the time and tedious effort to make sure your writing is at its most dignified, and he will likely del...
