Laura E. Pasquale, Ph.D. – Editor

With special expertise in psychology, the self-help genre, journal submissions, and texts, I'm available to help your writing shine!

Overview

I LOVE the written word.


With extensive experience as an acquisitions editor for a traditional publishing company and as an independent consultant, I now focus on the self-help genre as well as business, medicine, psychology, and social work. The resulting publications include books and journal articles as well as other academic and professional publications.


And what do Reedsy authors have to say?


"Laura's work was exceptional. She combined professional diligence with a warm, friendly approach, making the process smooth and enjoyable. Her attention to detail and efficient communication were outstanding. Laura is not just a skilled professional; she's a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended for anyone in need of top-quality services."


"Laura's professionalism and communication have been incredible. I felt excited once I received the edits back because I could see how Laura had tightened up the copy which improved the book immensely."


"Exceptional work from a truly talented professional. Laura helped me clarify, provided...exceptional recommendations, and felt like a trusted partner in the writing process...especially for a new author figuring things out as they go!"


Are you ready to move your project forward? If so, let's collaborate!
