Laurie McAndish KingAward-winning author, editor
I love words and sentences. Paragraphs, too. And I love the process of honing them: ensuring a consistent style, perfecting punctuation, attending to the details of grammar, syntax and usage — and understanding when and how to deviate from accepted norms.
Most of the editing I do is copyediting, which is done after the manuscript has been shaped and organized. My rates are consistent with those suggested by the Editorial Freelancers Association; please contact me if you’d like an estimate.
Laurie’s editing of our book was superb—good, fast and great ROI.Whitney Vosburgh
