Editing…Bah Humbug to Holiday Cheer!

Editing your work can be a difficult task. I find myself too attached to my manuscript to “see” all its flaws. I am blessed to have a wonderful critique group and highly suggest you get yourself into one.


If you haven’t been able to find that right group of fellow authors, there are other options. Our very own Sandwich Lady is a professional Editor (and is quiet amazing if I might say). She has a very special holiday special going on right now! Give yourself the best gift ever and have some help editing that masterpiece manuscript you have been working on. Below are the details from Margo Dill, Editor 911.

Editor 911 special offer, 20% off Editing Services – Get yours before December 31!

I love to Edit! Yes, this might sound odd to many writers who dread the Editing process.  As a multi-published author and longtime Editor, I have found that Editing is the hardest and most demanding part of finishing your writing project.

Why not let me help?

Margo Dill, Editor 911
