Hire a Professional Book Editor

If you want to be a professional author,
hire a professional book editor.

Every great writer has a great editor, so don’t think you can bypass this critical step when writing a book. When you publish your book, your reputation is on the line, and if you want to establish yourself as an expert in your field, increase your credibility, and attract a following, you must hire a professional book editor.

Why use professional book editing services?

One of the best pieces of advice I can give is to nonfiction writers is to resist the temptation to let your college student or friend-down-the-street-who-majored-in-English tackle the project of editing and perfecting your book.

Without a doubt, there is an art form involved in editing a book-length manuscript. It’s not a blog. It’s not an article. It’s a message that must be sustained over several hundred pages. Professional book editors will polish your manuscript and make it shine so that you carry your readers from beginning to end.

A book editor with a track record of success

If you’ve already written your book and are looking to find a book editor to work with, I can help you. But I must warn you that you can probably find less expensive book editing services for nonfiction writers elsewhere. I strictly work with clients who want to produce a top-notch professional product that will establish them as an expert in their field, increase their credibility, and attract a following.

Books I’ve edited have been endorsed by A-list celebrities and have realized meaningful success in an industry that can be difficult to find real success. When you work with me, you are working with a highly skilled and in-demand professional book editor. You can learn more about me here.


The cost for professional book editing services starts at $5,000.
