Eclipse Editing


As you might imagine, this is the question I hear most often.

I don’t believe in charging by the word. Why should you pay for quantity, when what you really want is quality? You need words which will make your book stand out from the competition, no boring, vanilla copy or jargon. I don’t do jargon.
