I love being an editor, and I especially enjoy the collaborative process of working closely with my authors to make their books the best they can be. Many authors have told me that I am the best editor they have ever worked with, and several have given me repeat business. I have been a freelance book editor since 2005 (and also from 1989 to 1994), and in 2011, I decided to form IndieGo Publishing when a few of my regular authors asked if I could publish their books too.
Because of my extensive experience as an editor, I have the unique ability to catch small errors while solving big-picture problems such as plot holes and weak character development, and I am naturally intuitive at understanding what the author is trying to say. I maintain regular email contact with my authors so that we are always in agreement and you're never left in the dark. Authors often tell me that my notes have sparked new ideas or helped them determine exactly how to improve troublesome sections of their books.
I have edited more than 300 books for independent authors and have published 17 books as paperbacks and ebooks with worldwide distribution through Lightning Source/Ingram, CreateSpace, and all the major ebook retailers, including Kindle. I enjoy the creative process of transforming a rough-draft manuscript to a cleanly edited, formatted, and beautifully designed book ready for publication. I can publish your book for you or guide you through the process so that you don't have to tackle the self-publishing learning curve alone.

My goal is that every author I work with is thrilled with my editing, and thus far, that goal has been met. I would love to work with you to polish and perfect your book too.
