Hi, I’m George Verongos and I’m here to help you complete your project.

I have edited the Certified Amazon #1 Bestsellers:
“Growing Bald” by Max DaSilva
“Ask Until It Is Given: Give Me 15 Minutes – I’ll Give You God-Like Power to Have It All,” by Matthew Hurtado.
“Incident at Devils Den—a true story,” by Terry Lovelace.
“Secrets of Top-Selling Agents: The Keys to Real Estate Success Revealed,” by Joe Sesso.

I edited the award-winning novel titled “Hooked,” by Allen Wolf. A movie version is currently in production.

And the debut book by investigative journalist, activist, and water protector, Chelsea Lyons called, “Siren: Sounding the Alarm on Politics, Sex, and the New American Revolution.”

I provide authors and publishers with the services and support they need for the next steps to publication. Those services include editing, both developmental and substantive, proofreading, ghostwriting, content design and layout, cover creation, and formatting for several self-publishing formats.

FREE SAMPLE EDIT! Just send me a few pages and I will edit them and return them promptly. This allows you to see how well we work together using your written words.

Price includes as many editing passes as you need to allow you the flexibility of making changes to the manuscript without paying for extra editing.

I include final proofread after the content editing is complete to ensure your manuscript is perfect, which saves you money on hiring a proofreader.

I’m here to help. I know that writing a book is a monumental task that requires support and insight, and that is what I provide for you. I will always work with you to make sure you are satisfied with my services and beyond excited about the completion of your new project.

I look forward to hearing from you.
Write on!
