Book Editing Services

Because words look better when polished

You’ve written the words, putting your heart and soul into getting your message or story out of your head and onto paper. Now you want to ensure that your message or story is perfectly presented to the world—in a voice that’s so much your own that when your readers interact with you, they will say (with relief), “You are exactly who I expected you to be.”

As the daughter of an avid editor, my own words have been critiqued and honed since I first uttered, “I want a cookie and I want a brownie and I want a half gallon of ice cream.” (For the record, there is a much more concise way to say that, and the sentence is missing a comma or two as it's written!).

A bestselling author with 20+ years’ experience editing a variety of works—from professional documents and academic papers to memoirs and works of non-fiction—I'm passionate about working in partnership with authors to verify proper syntax and improve overall flow while ensuring that the author’s unique style and tone are maintained throughout.

If you have a manuscript that is ready to go to edit, I would be honored to speak with you about how we might partner together. For rates or to set up a complimentary consultation, please email me directly at elizabeth@elizabethlyons.com.

I can't wait to speak with you about your project!
