My name is Zach. Like you, I love to read and write.
I have a varied background in editing, reading, literary analysis, writing, layout, web development, design, and marketing. I have a degree in English Literature with a minor in Journalism. Go here to learn more about my professional background.
I’ve had a love affair with books and the written word since I learned to read. It’s a relationship that has grown stronger over the past 36 years. A well-turned phrase delights me. Compelling ideas inspire me. Complicated characters enthrall me. Brilliant stories transport me.
The internet and the proliferation of digital tools have produced a populist revolution for creators. The meteoric rise in self-publishing over the past decade is a wonderful opportunity for readers and writers to discover new works and audiences.
I offer a number of services. My primary focus is working with self-published authors. My preferred genres fall within the broad categories of science fiction and fantasy, though I am open to working with authors in other genres or those working on non-fiction titles.
My priority in taking on a project goes in the following order: editing and proofing options, close reading, and developmental guidance, as well as formatting, layout, cover design and website design services. I will work with a client on a singular service or a combination of services, depending on need and my schedule.
I will provide references on request. I offer various levels of free samples for my editing services to help you determine if my services would be a good fit for your project. I am also happy to provide advice or refer you to a peer if I feel they would be a better option for your specific needs.
