I just worked with a guy named Stuart Horwitz. He edited a book proposal for me and I found him to be insightful, direct, on target, tactful, and able to see things I couldn't see in my own writing. He was referred to me by a fellow NSA member, Susan Page, author of "The Shortest Distance Between You and a Published Book."
Stuart's phone number is 415-419-3545 and his e-mail address is email@example.com. His initial consultation is free and includes defining the scope of the project and an estimate of hours it will take to edit your project. After that, he charges $50 per hour.

I have used Tim Polk. He is great! What I love best about him is that he EDITS my book, and doesn't try to make it his book, which is what happened to me with another editor I used a few years ago. His phone number is: (707) 568-7322. Email: POLKpar72@aol.com

I would highly recommend Tim Polk as a book editor. He edited my book proposal as well as my entire book. He has ghostwritten books and articles for other people as well. Tim and I met initially when he worked for Crisp Publications so he has experience with editing as well as the publishing business. Tim has quick turn-around, excellent suggestions, and very good prices. He can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
