List of Editors

We have compiled a list of seasoned editors who contract independently of Author Enterprise.  Please read each presentation and select an editor that feels right to you.  Remember that Author Enterprise does NOT employ these editors. Any agreements/payments between author and editor are contractually and financially between the two. No business relationship has been established with Author  When you contact the editor all obligations will be the authors.  If any editor acts inappropriately or unprofessionally, please let us know.  

Editors are an additional expense because a great editor can make a book a success or failure.  Based on your level of writing talent, an editor will charge in the neighborhood of $1,500 per 55K word manuscript (memoir standard word count) to $4,000 for more content work. These expenses are between an author and their editor and are not provided by Author Enterprise.  Our services are service based on producing the story, and connecting you to an editor, not providing the edits.

Hi, I'm Erin. I am an editor and proofreader who helps writers refine their voices and polish their words so their stories will shine and stand out from the rest. Being a writer myself, I understand how you labor to bring your voice to the world and how important it is to work with someone who treats it with care. When your words shine, YOU shine! I provide developmental editing for creative nonfiction like a memoir, spirituality, and self-help; and line and copy editing, and proofreading for both creative nonfiction and fiction, especially mysteries, thrillers, fantasy, and sci-fi.

I love a good love story. If you've got a fiery hero/heroine and a love interest with a sense of humor, I'd love to meet them. I give feedback on big-picture elements like plot, story structure, and dialogue. I also provide line edits to tighten paragraphs and make the story sparkle. I specialize in historical and contemporary romance and erotica. My favorite subgenres include LGBTQ+ and BDSM.
