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.
After you’ve written and revised your book on your own, you need the perspective of an outside expert in story telling to insure what you have in your head is what’s on the page.
I help you see what is actually written down and what is still in your imagination as well as what is and isn’t working. Then we work together to find solutions that keep your authorial voice and desires for your story present.
We work with new and self-published authors to get their manuscripts in the best possible shape for the digital market. Our focus is science fiction and fantasy, including Young Adult titles.

“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)
