About

Elizabeth A. WhiteMy reviews have appeared in Spinetingler Magazine, The Savannah Morning News, The Florida Times-Union, St. Augustine Record, Bluffton Today, been quoted on authors’ websites, excerpted in publishers’ promotional materials, and used as blurbs for numerous print novels.

I have been working with words in one fashion or another for over two decades, including obtaining a law degree from Mercer University School of Law, and offer several levels of editing services. For more information, please click here.

When I’m not reading or editing, I’m the Content Manager for the official site of musician Bruce Kulick (Grand Funk Railroad, KISS, Meat Loaf), a position I’ve held since 1997.

– Authors and Publishers on Elizabeth A. White –

“Go to her site, read any random review, and you can see she knows what she’s talking about. She’s VERY insightful, and whatever she says about my books–good or bad–I always feel like she nailed it. I’d recommend her for anything, but especially if you’re looking for an editor for mystery/crime/thriller fiction.” — Jeff Strand (Bram Stoker Award Finalist and author of Pressure, Dweller, and the Andrew Mayhem series)

“I cannot say enough good things about working with Elizabeth. It’s never an easy process deciding who to trust with the final polish of the work you’ve slaved over for years, but finding Elizabeth to edit my debut supernatural thriller put all my anxieties to rest. She is not only an amazing talent with a great eye for detail and tone, but provides a perfect mix of professionalism, passion and care throughout what is often a grueling process. For every four and five star review my book has received, and for every time someone has remarked about its strong writing, I know I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Elizabeth for her impeccable touch. There aren’t many certainties in life, but knowing you’ll be happy you decided to work with Elizabeth is definitely one of them.” — Stephen Paul (Author of The Perfect Game)

“Elizabeth’s frontwards and backwards understanding of crime fiction—especially emerging trends—coupled with her ability to analyze and articulate fine points, makes her a reviewer that I trust without pause. Her gift for authentically engaging in online discussions across a variety of social media platforms is a welcome addition to a town square often filled with shouters and hucksters.” — Benjamin LeRoy (Publisher, Tyrus Books)

“Elizabeth helped push my manuscript to the next level. Not only did she find the grammatical and spelling mistakes, but she helped me with the developmental edit as well. It all paid off for me because Roundfire Books picked up my manuscript and published it. Elizabeth has an excellent sense of narrative and offers kind wisdom on how to make a manuscript more interesting for a reader. Sometimes it’s difficult for a writer to have an objective view about their work. Elizabeth will help you catch the plot holes and point out your ‘darlings’ in a thoughtful, professional way.” — Roderick Vincent (Author of The Cause)

“I have only brilliant things to say about Elizabeth—she has my recommendation 110%. Passionate about her literature, Elizabeth is equally adept at selection of same, and has a canny understanding of diverse genres and progressive directions as much as for a traditional read. With my book One Hundred Years of Vicissitude, Elizabeth not only took on the challenge of an unsung, as-yet-unpublished manuscript, but gave some fantastic advice and feedback. I trust her opinion and believe she truly does have her finger on the pulse of cutting edge contemporary literature, as well as a good crime romp.” — Andrez Bergen (Author of One Hundred Years of Vicissitude, Who is Killing the Great Capes of Heropa? and Depth Charging Ice Planet Goth)

“I’ve had the great pleasure of working with Elizabeth on projects ranging from flash fiction and short stories to a full-length novel. Each time my expectations were surpassed. Elizabeth’s professional critiques not only improved each work, but also my writing in general. She goes beyond the prose, fact checking and providing insightful commentary on plot, character and the like. I very much look forward to continued work with Elizabeth, and I highly recommend her editing services to other writers.” — Christopher Irvin (Author of Federales and Burn Cards)

“It can be a cold, hard world out there for writers who choose to go it alone without the professional supports a publisher can provide. Finding the right person to tackle your work can be critical in such a situation. I was lucky enough to find Elizabeth willing and able to give my self-published work a much-needed boost, pointing out things to fix I never thought to (or could) notice. You don’t have to work in a vacuum or lose the benefit of an expert eye, because Elizabeth is there to help you up your game.” — Sam Hawken (CWA Dagger Awards-nominated author of The Dead Women of Juárez, Juárez Dance, and The Night Charter)

“I’ve found Elizabeth to care deeply about books and to provide thoughtful and inspired analysis of what she reads. It has been a pleasure working with her.” — Lou Aronica (Publisher, The Story Plant)

“At some point in the revision process, writers inevitably lose sight of the words they’ve written. The sharp eye and mind of Elizabeth White can help you see your work anew. She tells you where you’ve done your job well, and where you’ve made a mess of things—story notes, line edits, fact checking, you name it. And all this feedback comes with the vibe of a smart friend who gets what you’re doing (as opposed to a ruler-snapping nun who jumps in your face every time you use a comma incorrectly). But it’s not just the editing that makes her services so valuable; it’s also the encouragement of a highly astute reader that makes your vision clearer than ever.” — Jeff Hess (Author, Beachhead / Editor, Home of the Brave)

“In a world with lots of voices and lots of skill levels, Elizabeth is at the top. Elizabeth doesn’t write book reviews, she writes literary criticism, an art in itself.” — James LePore (Author of Gods and Fathers and Sons and Princes)

“A smart, witty reviewer who supports us writers, while at the same time leads readers toward books they will enjoy. If you are lucky enough to have her get and like what you are doing, then you will have a fierce ally.” — Josh Stallings (Anthony Award-nominated author of All the Wild Children, Beautiful Naked & Dead, Out There Bad, and One More Body)
