Here is what others have had to say about working with me. There are more on the About Me page of my website, www.excellentedits.com.

“Michelle did a great job, really the kind of edit I imagined in my mind before this even started."

“Michelle has an amazing eye for detail...Michelle went beyond what I expected and added great value.”—B. Bansal (Author, nonfiction)

How can I help you? I offer several levels of edits depending on your goals and your budget.

The most important aspect of your work is the story you tell. I offer an editing package that will review your work from a broad perspective. For a fiction book, this includes feedback about the plot, characters, setting, storytelling elements, and point of view. For a nonfiction book, this includes feedback about logic, order, presentation, clarity, and relevance. This edit can be bundled with a copy edit or be a standalone service. I also offer a copy edit, which will check for grammar, usage, punctuation, and spelling according to the style guide you need for your publishing goals.

I would love to hear from you and give you a free sample.
