About Us

I have been a journalist for more than 25 years, and I have been successfully writing fiction for ten years. I’ve taught hundreds of writing workshops over the years, and the No. 1 question I get is, “Do you know of someone who can help me edit my book?” The second most popular question is, “Do you know someone who could critique my book?” I get those same questions several times a week. Well, it just so happens that I do know a lot of great editors. Many of those editors, due to downsizing in the publishing industry, are working freelance these days. These are top stars in the industry, and they still want to work with talented authors.

This is the place where some of my favorite people—editors and writers—can come together to make magic happen. It’s our job at HelpMeEdit.net to facilitate that magic. We want you to be successful, and we will do whatever we can to help you reach your publishing goals. Our primary business is editorial services, but we also provide customized programs to help you with everything from cover design and e-book formatting to marketing, social media, and media training.

As a writer, you may often feel alone, but you aren’t alone anymore. We are here for you.
