Before you share your book with the world,
hire a professional editor/book designer!

Most self-publishing houses offer editorial services—I know; I've worked for many of them. Sure, they'll add in missing commas, fix typos, and clean up simple grammatical errors, but that's all they care about. They won't provide the kind of line editing that serious writers need, want, and deserve. They won't point out dangling plot points, edit for flow and consistency, or suggest improvements to characters or scenes. If you just want to be published, that's fine. But if you want to publish the best possible version of your book, without compromising your unique voice, contact me at max@mizmaxgordon.com

About

MAX GORDON probably wrote and illustrated her first story the day she learned to hold a crayon—and she’s been scribbling ever since. After earning a master’s degree in writing and publishing from USC, she worked in publishing, typesetting, marketing, design, and procrastinating, but has never stopped being a writer. She has one son (the light of her life) and a partner (the soundtrack of her life), and lives contentedly wherever there’s waterfront, WiFi, and great coffee.

Mantra

Let me live, love, and say it well in good sentences.

—Sylvia Plath
