It was a pleasure to work with Michael Patton on his debut novel, Death in the Devil’s Range, which finds California rancher Dan Williams drawn into the investigation of the murder of his reclusive neighbor, a retired nuclear physicist whose killing may have ties to Nazi-era technology and a missing World War II submarine filled with gold. The second book in the series is forthcoming later this year.
“I’ve worked with Elizabeth on both self-published and traditionally published books. Each time I found her to be extremely professional, timely and she provided a great knowledge of the genre of crime fiction, as well as fixed my grammatical travesties. I could go with any number of people to correct my spelling, but Elizabeth gave my writing a bit more that I feel really helped push it to its final stage.” — Mike McCrary
For as long as Van Dorn can remember, those words, which represented his father’s worldview, were drilled into him at every opportunity. Little could Van Dorn have realized just how grim things would become, and how ruthlessly he would have to put that philosophy into action in an America spun violently out of control in author Frank Bill’s latest, The Savage.
It’s a pleasure working with Alan Chaput on his Vigilantes for Justice mystery series set in Savannah, Georgia. The first book in the series, Savannah Sleuth, was released December 8, 2017, with the second story featuring Savannah social icon Patricia Falcon, Savannah Secrets, slated for a March 2018 publication date.
“I’ve worked on two manuscripts with Elizabeth, both of which were picked up by publishers, and there’s no doubt in my mind that I’ll be returning to her for my next. With her legal background and editing skills, Elizabeth is super sharp and astute. Not only will she correct your copy to the standard, but her development skills will catch things you didn’t notice. She’ll let you know what needs to be corrected, offer suggestions for change, and sensibly question details so that the story sounds logical, without distorting your writer’s voice. Take my word for it, you’re in safe hands.” — Khaled Talib
“Elizabeth came highly recommended, and I learned why. She truly amazed me with her personalized approach to editing. When it came time to give her feedback, she presented it as a conversation in which I could enter rather than a mere summative opinion piece. She opened herself to answer questions and give suggestions. I really valued that. My novel is to be published in large part because of her work, and my writing is greatly improved because of working with her.” — Jon Bennett
