Really Good Editing


Really Good Editing

The Most Thorough Freelance Editing
in the Known Universe



Early in September, I shared THIS POST about Harrison Demchick as part of Random Acts of Publicity week. Harrison has been an editor at Bancroft Press for six years and recently started a freelance editing business. HE. IS. AMAZING.

His new website for REALLY GOOD EDITING is officially up and running. You can check it out HERE

And to refresh your memory, here is some of what I said about him in my last post:
I have never recommended something on this blog (other than books) that would cost you money, but I can't recommend Harrison highly enough. I assure you, his comments are worth their weight in gold--and then some. If you are struggling with an area of your manuscript, looking for a reliable set of extra eyes and constructive criticism, or preparing to query/submit, consider sending your story to Harrison. You won't be sorry.
For more, check out the rest of my post and visit his website. Two pages of comments from him took my novel in a whole new direction. My critique partner and I can't believe how much stronger my story has become. I'm eager to finish my edits and share the changes with Harrison.

If cost is what has been holding you back, email Harrison for an estimate. I could never afford professional editing, either, but his rates are VERY affordable.

He's currently fully editing mine. I am both excited and frightened to get it back. I made a lot of changes thanks to his suggestions, too.

Wow, Shannon! Is this NAUGHTY BOY you're talking about?

I would love to know the changes you made, can feel your excitement!

Thanks for the recommend! I've been wanting to use an editor, and found a few really expensive ones.

Exceptionally helpful. And his header (and the question in the FAQ) make it clear he has a good sense of humor, which would make everything much more fun...

Thanks for the recommendation!

The editing process has been the most nail biting experience of my literary journey. I get so nervous when I get an edit in my email. Thanks for sharing this editor's info. If I should need another one, I know where to go.
