Editing and Proofreading Services

With an MS in publishing from New York University, and with over ten years of experience in editing fiction and non-fiction writing, I will give your job the detailed and caring attention that it deserves. Over the years, I have edited numerous short stories, novels, articles, business documents, press releases and letters at my job, and as a freelance editor.

Clients include the president of Japan Shotokan Karate Association, Intime Technologies, Inc., and a number of published and unpublished authors.

My published works of fiction include a co-written, award-winning urban fantasy novel, A Touch of Darkness, published by City Owl Press, and a short story in the for-charity Anthology, Winter Wonders, called Amarok's Bite, originally published by CompassPress and available currently from City Owl Press.

Words from satisfied customers:

"Yelena was at all times polite and kept me up to date with the progress of her editing. I felt 'well take care of', for want of a better term and knew I was in good hands.
On receiving the completed edits, I found the notes extremely helpful and exactly what I had hoped for. Her comments were easy to understand and her suggestions were comprehensive without me feeling she was 'dictating' to me. More so, she offered a follow-up email should I want or need to discuss or review any aspect of her edits."
~ Nikola Vukoja, author

Yelena provides top notching editing on both fiction works and academic articles. Whenever I need a high quality edit, I book her services. Fast turnaround and fair pricing means I can spend more time writing and less time worrying. I know I'm getting professional quality on every draft. Don't hesitate to try her editing service for yourself. You won't be disappointed. 

~ Tina Moss, author

To say I was a little nervous - sending my first manuscript to an editor for review - would be an understatement. But from the beginning, Yelena was encouraging and supportive. When I received her edits, I was very pleased. Along with the basic grammar and punctuation suggestions, she included polite, easy-to-understand comments that helped improve the overall read of the novel. In addition, she offered to discuss any questions I might have about the edits and comments.
I would highly recommend her services to anyone seeking quality service from a polished, professional editor.
 ~ Jan White, author
