Mike Loomis – Editor

20+ years in publishing. I've ghostwritten 2 NYT bestsellers and countless Amazon bestsellers. Genres: nonfiction, business, career, faith.


I'm a book developer, ghostwriter, and editor.

I also coach authors on planning the best book for their goals, and crucial next steps after publishing.

Because of my twenty-plus years of experience, I help authors refine their idea, polish their work, and reach their audience.

I can help you from concept to completion.

I've worked with NYT bestselling authors, publishers (Simon and Schuster, Hachette, Multnomah, Zondervan, Random House, Nelson, NavPress, and Penguin) and two recent projects hit the New York Times Bestseller list.

I've ghostwritten 2 NYT bestsellers and countless Amazon bestsellers.

But am truly honored to help first-time authors. In many ways, I find it very rewarding to help new/indie authors navigate the journey!

Wondering about a developmental edit? My "editorial assessment" service prior to jumping into a full edit could save a significant amount, and better equip you for the path ahead.

Mike L was easy to work with. He took his time and added helpful ideas, edits, and information in order to make my manuscript better. He was on time and available to discuss anything further. Having Mike assess my work was a positive experience.
