"Tom Locke copyedited my 400-page manuscript not only to catch my errors but to guarantee the text conformed to the Chicago Manual of Style. I could not have asked for a better copyeditor. He is a thoughtful, careful, precise editor who has the experience, the knowledge, and the patience to handle any project. He also offered detailed explanations for all the edits he made. He made my book better than it was, and I thank him for it. (He'll probably copyedit this blurb as well, but I don't mind because I'd trust him with any of my writing!)" – Jeff Miller (Author of Behind the Lines)
Good editing is designed to be invisible. Bad editing or no editing calls attention to itself. This is not the kind of attention you want for your book! Give your book the gift of professional editing--you'll be glad you did.
