"This was my first novel, and I was truly nervous about finding someone who would not only keep my voice and tone throughout the book but walk me through the process as well. Megan not only edited my book which she was hired to do, but she also pushed me to elaborate and be more detailed when needed. The experience was seamless and amazing. I will definitely use Joseph Editorial Services for my next novel."

EDITING

a different kind of

One of the things that makes me different from other editors is my commitment to the author's words. I think far too often, editors impose their own will on a manuscript, almost forcing authors to rewrite it so it meets with the editor's convictions. I've seen many talented authors give up on writing because they've been critiqued too harshly by an editor. I’ve read more rants on why a book wasn’t good and what an editor disliked about the storyline and characters disguised as manuscript evaluations than I care to remember. Each time, I was deeply saddened at the callousness with which the writer was treated. Somewhere along the way, editors became synonymous with tearing up books and changing their foundation, rather than assisting the author to enhance what they wrote. That’s not okay, and it’s something I’m seeking to change one author at a time.
 
My mission is to preserve the authenticity of your words, thoughts, and vision for your book. It shouldn't read the way I, nor anyone else, would write it. Your genuineness should be maintained at all costs. It is my job to help you present your words in a way that is easily digested by the reader, so nothing impacts their ability to see the picture you've painted. It is not my job to tell you what your readers will or won't like. Reader taste varies greatly, even within the same sub-genre, so it’s inconsiderate and dishonest to tell an author no one is going to read or enjoy their book, in my opinion.
 
Joseph Editorial Services will always remain faithful to your voice. It's a point of pride for me to see an author who has been beaten down by the industry finally release their book…and then to watch readers bestow praise on them for the work. Your words deserve to be heard as you wrote them, with your intention intact. Allow us the opportunity to show you the difference it makes to have an editor who is focused on helping you grow rather than changing your perspective.
