If you want a first class editor, a collaborator and someone who cares – Johnny is the person you’re looking for! Aqua mask 4x5

Johnny has the technical skills and the keen editorial eye, but even more importantly, he actually cares about the book beyond its words. A book isn’t just a dollar-per-word-count gig for him, but a living thing that he helps shape. He takes the time to understand and grasp the writer’s vision. When I had a question, I found myself writing “we” rather than “I”, because I felt this was a team effort and that there was someone in my corner with me

On the editorial side, Johnny was very helpful – he caught several bloopers that I had overlooked, critically examined the plot, helped me reach a deeper understanding of POV, and edited sections to create quick and simple imagery by cutting away the fluff.

Johnny’s input is invaluable and I am currently working on the next book in my romance series with him. In my opinion, he’s the best!

    I couldn’t agree more. The best thing I like about working with Johnny is that he doesn’t mind if I disagree with him, but instead, he, very patiently, explains WHY he’s edited it the way he has and then leaves me to make up my own mind.

    • Very true, Louise – editing is all about opinion, and if my writers agree with at least 80% of my suggestions then I’m one happy editor.
