Full-scope book editing for less than other book editors for hire charge for proofreading alone by Stephen King's first editor
Who I Am & Why I Should Be Your Book Editor
Hello, I'm Michael Garrett, an internationally respected book editor and author. You can get to know me here, but if you'd like to learn more about my book editing experience just check out my about page.
As A Book Editor
I was Stephen King's first editor and publisher and an Editorial Associate of the Writer's Digest School. I've worked with such greats as Joyce Carol Oates, Harlan Ellison, Lawrence Block, and many others as co-editor of the internationally award-winning thirteen volume Hot Blood anthology series which was optioned for television and was a popular Book-of-the-Month Club selection. My book editing credentials are easily verifiable through an Amazon.com search for the Hot Blood books and in Stephen King's book On Writing. I've edited over 2,500 book manuscripts with a 99.5% client satisfaction rate.
As A Professionally Published Author
Since 1979 my works have appeared in periodicals ranging from Twilight Zone magazine to my novel, Keeper, currently available in digital and audio formats. Much of my fiction has been published in England, Germany, Japan, Italy, the Netherlands, France, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Spain, Finland, and Russia, as well as in audio and eBook formats. Some have been optioned for film and television. Wouldn't you prefer a book editor who has actually been there and done that?
I'm one of few book editors for hire recommended by the highly reputable Preditors & Editors website. I have verifiable commercial book editing experience with Pocket Books and Kensington Publishing and am listed in The Literary Marketplace, the publishing industry's official directory of proven commercial professionals, as well as PublishersMarketplace.com.
My book editing qualifications are among the best you'll find:
- Book editing fees among the lowest offered by A-list book editors with comparable experience
- Comprehensive line edit, including proofreading and correction of punctuation, for what comparable book editors for hire charge for proofreading alone
- Honest, reliable editorial feedback, explaining complicated issues that, in many cases, eliminates the need for extensive research
