Editorial and ghostwriting services focused primarily on nonfiction. Developmental editing and coaching; copyediting; proofreading; copywriting for articles and your author website.

Tom’s Touch
Tom Locke

“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)

Copyediting, which includes proofreading, noting internal inconsistencies, and asking questions when something doesn’t sound right. Twenty-seven years as a staff writer and editor with news organizations. References available. Free two-page sample edit followed by cost estimate on per-page basis.
