Stephanie Taylor – Editor

I've worked with some of the biggest names on the NY Times and USA Today Bestsellers lists. I want YOU to be next! Are you ready?


Immediate bookings available and less than 8 week turn around times, if desired!

I'm that girl. The girl who fought to get a book published. Adding, commas, after, every, word. I opened a publishing company back in 2010 and found my love for editing. I discovered top notch authors and edited them; three of which are now #1 New York Times best sellers, two who are USA Today best sellers. I know good work when I see it, in all genres of fiction.

I used to be you. I tried to navigate the muddy waters of publishing and editing until finally one day I was schmoozing with Kiera Cass and E.L. James at book conventions, learning the trade, the secrets, and how to stand out.

With fifteen years of editing experience, you'd think I'm gonna charge you an arm and a leg. Maybe even a first born? Nah. I was there once too - in need of professional editing. I know the importance of keeping costs low and sales high. I'm here to help you, the author, realize your dreams.

Let's talk, laugh, and get you out there, conquering the publishing world sooner rather than later!

Stephanie was amazing to work with! Her insight was spot on, and her feedback was clear and concise. She responded quickly to my questions. She even edited a chapter revision at no extra charge. I highly recommend Stephanie to anyone looking for quality editing on their manuscript.

Working with Stephanie was great. She provided excellent feedback on where to cut and where to add, and on my tendency to use certain words excessively :) Her responses were quick, and she finished even quicker than promised.

Working with Stephanie on my manuscript was an enlightening experience. One of the highlights of our collaboration was her responsiveness. Stephanie was always quick to reply to my inquiries and engage in discussions about the project. This level of interaction was invaluable and greatly appreciated.
