The Editor’s Manual: earn money editing with confidence!

Denis Ledoux has edited hundreds and hundreds of writers. Our Editor’s Manual distills decades of that editing experience. He knows how you can earn money editing!

I have always found that editing in all its facets—developmental, content, copy—is essential for any memoir. The secret to our editing is we shape a story with the author in mind and not the editor. Sometimes an editor can push for excellence, and at other times, an editor commits to helping a writer create the best book s/he can. Not every memoir can be outstanding but every memoir can be clear, coherent and interesting.
