How I Edit

What I Always Do

As an editor, I help authors tap into the voice that is already inside them. This entails some in-depth one-on-one work that I really love doing.

What I Never Do

The author's voice is not up to me to change. My goal is to help it bring it out, in its most beautiful, clear, best version.

What Do I Sometimes Do

In both academia and the publishing industry, trends are important. I cannot follow all academic fashions, but for poets and writers, I often do research on what is out there and help writers compile lists of comparable titles (comps).

Always outstanding, nary an ouchie to be found, always opting for the clearest path to a point, what Olga offered was the exact feedback I needed, when I needed it, how I needed it. (And, if that sentence was in my book, she would have politely found a way to say it was o-o-over the top!) Olga perfectly understood what I was trying to do, delivered on time and on-budget, and gave the exact advice and changes I needed. Beyond brilliant edits, most important to me was that she got me. She understood my struggles, my project, what I was trying to achieve, and took the time to learn all that before jumping into edits. That was huge!
