Stacey Miller – Editor

My bliss is to guide first-time authors through the editorial and publication process. It's wonderful to help make dreams come true.

Overview

How can a professional editor help you convey your messages?


For 25+ years, I have served as copy editor and proofreader on books from such publishers as Penguin, Ballantine, Penguin, and Adams Media, and by independently published authors. I see my role as helping you strengthen your manuscript and eliminate any typos, grammatical mistakes, and style issues that may interfere with the messages you've worked so diligently to communicate.


I'm experienced with fiction and nonfiction books. Self-help, personal health, medical, parenting and family, business, and career books are my strengths. It will be my pleasure to gently guide you through the editorial process, smooth out any rough spots, and answer any questions you may have about the publishing process. I respect authors, and I consider myself an advocate and ally.

I can't complement Stacey enough. She goes above and beyond and is more than fair in pricing. Honestly, she's probably undervaluing her work as it's extraordinary. She took her time, asked for what she needed, and set great boundaries. She's truly a gem, and I would highly, HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for a fabulous editor and proofreader. I could go on and on, but if you read this r...
