Editing

I’m available for editing fiction, non-fiction, and Christian works. View my editing website at http://www.sharpeyeedits.net.

What some writers have said about the quality of my work:

“Attention all writers.  If you’ve been struggling to find a great editor – consider your effort over.  Over the years, I’ve had a dozen editors take a stab at my books and articles.  All of them competent; some even pretty good.  But when I handed over my latest manuscript to Lauren, she came back with changes that were so insightful that within two edit submissions, my book was transformed.  I have never had a more enjoyable, productive and professional experience with any other editor.  She is just brilliant and a writer’s secret weapon.”

Participating is the New Cool (link)
“Lauren’s ability as an editor is off the charts. I was honestly shocked how meticulous she was when she edited my book. Her work goes far beyond simple copy-editing. When working on my book, Lauren provided essential feedback on the content, even suggesting helpful illustrations that could be included in the text. When you work with Lauren, you are getting someone who pays attention to details and is absolutely attentive to the heart of what you are trying to do as an author. Lauren also has something that many authors desperately need (at least I do). She is encouraging! Yes, she points out when things don’t work, or when a paragraph or sentence is confusing, but she also lets you know when there were strong sections. This combination is so important. Rather than dreading the red marks on the page, I look forward to reading her comments!”
