Ginny Ruths

Touchstone Publications

In writing a book, you focus on the inspiration and the ideas, the emotional drive of your story. Your vision deserves an editor who brings the same passion to the project, with a side of objectivity. I work with you to hone your individual style and voice and provide the finishing touch to your writing, the polish that makes it shine.

Skills I bring to your manuscript:
In editing I address elements such as character and plot development, action, thematic progression, word choice, organization, structure, flow, style, and consistency to boost dramatic impact, enhance emotion, clarify descriptions, and improve readability. Grammar, spelling, and punctuation are second nature to me.

Services I offer:
Developmental editing, substantive editing, line editing, stylistic editing, copy editing, copy writing, proofreading, manuscript assessment, manuscript evaluation, coaching.

Favorite genres to both read and edit:
Fantasy, young adult, children’s books, memoir & personal-journey stories, adventure & thriller, mystery, historical fiction.

“I know my manuscript is better because of you and your skills. Even more, I believe no one but you could have made it as close to perfect as you have done. Ginny, it’s amazing. The work you’ve done is exactly what I had wanted, and I am thrilled.”

“Ginny embraced and enhanced my voice, allowing me to appreciate a richer version of my own writing.”

“If what I need is a skilled pen able to sharpen plot development while polishing the edges; to cause prose to leap off the page, gripping a reader with anticipation; and to excite imagination with blazing imagery, then I turn to Ginny Ruths. A highly talented editor and writer gifted with uncanny insight, Ginny is at the pinnacle of her craft.”

“Ginny was able to help pull out the narrative and tone and enhance it with explanations as needed. We interviewed and spoke with 10 editors before choosing Ginny. She was worth every penny we invested.”
