Business Editing and Proofreading Service

Every Author Needs An Editor

When you read your own writing, you don't see what's on the paper or computer screen. You see what's in your head. That's why it's so easy to find the mistakes of others but so hard to find your own.

Credibility is mandatory. You know that from your experiences as a customer. Mistakes make you look less than professional and are downright embarrassing.

Lack of clarity is even worse. You want to ensure that everything can be easily understood and nothing can be misunderstood. For this, the perspective of someone who didn't write the document is invaluable.

Hiring an editor will always cost less than reprinting your documents or having your prospect point out your mistakes. Not to mention lowering your stress levels.

Editing is an investment, not an expense.

Some editors will promise you two or three edits. I call them slackers. I reread your manuscript as many times as it takes. I want your document to be perfect and I presume you do too.

If you've got a tight deadline, let me know what it is and I'll meet it. My price is 2 cents (US) per word, my usual turnaround time is 48 hours, and I work on weekends and holidays.

According to George Orwell, great writing is like a window pane. Let Michael Edits be your Windex.

Thank you!! I'm so grateful I found you. You always find one little thing I missed.
Lenore Vassil, Founder of The Torch
Michael LaRocca has been our editor for many years, reviewing dozens of documents, as well as our weekly newsletter. He has kept us from looking stupid countless times. Working with Michael is easy and friction-free. He has been extremely flexible and helped us meet even our most unreasonable deadlines. He has spoiled us and we hope we never have to use another editor.
Carl Dickson, Capture Planning/PropLibrary/Virtual VP Services
Impressively quick, impressively accurate, and impressively savvy. Michael is my secret weapon--the finishing polish that my writing and ghostwriting needs to really shine. He has saved me from countless embarrassments and faux pas. Nothing I write is fit to show until Michael says so.
Derek Lewis, Business Book Ghostwriter
