Sue Toth - Editor

Jefferson, NJ, United States

I edit fiction, including romance, mystery, science fiction, young adult, erotica, and thrillers. I can't wait to work with you!

Overview

You've worked hard on your book; it's almost like your baby. Of course turning it over to an editor can be scary. What if they change everything? What if you get it back and it sounds nothing like what you originally wrote?

Not to worry! My goal as your editor is to make your book the best it can be without changing your style or voice. I make suggestions, not edicts. I work with you, not against you. In the end, it's your book, and I will always respect that.

I look forward to working with you to make your book ready for the world to see!
