Brian is the best editor I've ever worked with. He took a story I was uncertain about, and thanks to his insightful notes, I was able to rework it into something I genuinely loved. I'm thinking I just might have to force him to read everything I write.

Brian J. Walton is a conscientious and consummate editor (...) I would not hesitate to recommend him for his editing services.


Bill Hackenberger

He provided timely and quality feedback to me that helped me greatly improve my manuscript. He was open to my input, was quick, and was always professional. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Brian again.


The broad strokes. We can work together at any stage from concept to your fiftieth draft. 


Style and content. We will look at everything from pacing and characterization to sentence variety and word choice.


The nitty gritty. We will check for errors, ensure consistency, and flag potential factual errors. 


Bill Patterson

It takes iron to sharpen iron. I asked Brian to give me a hard but fair edit, and he did not disappoint. His comments showed me where I could better my story as well as my future writing.


Gerhard Gerke

Working with Brian as an editor was a delight. His suggestions were on point for making my story better on every Lebel. I am grateful to have had him on the project and hope to work with him again.

I was impressed with Brian's editorial touch on my short story. It was light enough not to offend, direct enough to make the story better, and kind enough to keep from triggering my fight or flight responses. He knows what he's doing.
