Resource List: Book Editors

Several of my friends and clients have asked about editors to help them with their writing. While I do some editing and enjoy working with non-fiction and business writers, there are others who specialize in long-form narrative or editing fiction or non-fiction books. Here is a list, in no particular order, of book editors to consider.

In order to make this list, a person must have been recommended by someone I personally know. In other words, I am not vouching for them specifically, but the list is culled from recommendations of people in my circle. I will do my best to keep this updated. If you have feedback on any of the individuals, please post a comment or contact me privately. The list is in no particular order.

Also, Alicia Dunams is a super smart book consultant who has a network of editors and other professionals. She’s worked with several of my friends, and my work with her has been terrific. Here is my referral link if you are interested in working with her or attending any of her workshops, including her Bestseller in a Weekend workshops or online programs.
