Message From the Editor

Hello Ilene,

From the chapter you sent as well as a couple snippets I read from your other books on Amazon, it’s evident you have a strong grasp of grammar and a straightforward narrative voice. I’d be happy to work on this short project with you!

A couple of questions:

  • Who is the audience for this book? You mentioned that it’s an easy read, and if it’s meant to be YA, that will change my tactic a little bit as I edit it.
  • When you asked about layout and said, “I have some areas where indentation is needed,” are you asking for ebook formatting with encoded tags, or do you simply mean adjusting the indentation in Microsoft Word? I’m happy to perform the latter as part of my copyediting work, but I don’t have the skills to do the former.

I’ve provided a quote below. As it happens, I have an opening in my calendar starting Monday 1/7 — we could start right away. Otherwise, I’m engaged from 1/24 through 2/7, so we would need to come up with a different time for this project.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns before we get started.

All the best,


PS: I put The Second Torpedo on my reading list. That time period is a particular interest of mine, and I can’t wait to read your tale.



This project will take approximately two weeks (10 business days) to copyedit from the time I receive the full manuscript and payment. For example, if the materials were sent on January 8, the completed project would be returned by 5pm PST on January 22 (where weekends and MLK Day are non-business days).
