As an author, there are several stages of your writing in which you might need an editor to help:

  • clarify your concept
  • plan and organize your material
  • think globally about how the parts fit together
  • read for content, consistency, and style
  • craft a catchy title
  • check for grammar, punctuation, and typos

Bottom line: If you are writing a book, you need an editor — maybe more than one, since different kinds of editors specialize in different aspects of preparing a book for publication.

I have helped many authors and can help you at any step in the writing process. Give me a call at 314-968-8661 or drop me a note at bobbi@writeanonfictionbook.com.

    Hi Bobbi
    I saw you at the SLPA meeting in February. Thoroughly enjoyed the meeting. It was my first. You sound as if you really have been down the word path.
    By the way, please check the first sentence below in About Bobbi Linkemer.

    You are so right! Thank you so much for pointing out that pretty glaring mistake. Now, all I have to do is figure out how to fix that on WordPress. if you are at the next meeting, please say hi so I can meet you.
