I believe you will be satisfied with my editing. It is encouraging that so many clients appreciate the improvements I can bring to manuscripts upon which they've worked so long and hard. I don't claim to be able to make a best selling book out of your work, but I can make it a better, more readable, and publisher-ready manuscript than it is at present.
People have offered some positive testimonials about my editorial work. I value each client alike, and I do my very best work for each. Though editors can be a very picky bunch, I make the editing suggestions and corrections that I feel best and make sure you, the author, is the one who approves and appreciates the results. I wish you the very best in your reading and writing ventures.

If you're looking for someone who'll give you everything you'd want in an editor and more, Steve is your guy!"

"Steve Fortosis is the best in the business. He edited, rewrote, and labored over my book as if it were his own.

Don't worry any longer...contact him if you need help with your book."
-Fran E. Grubb
"After I finished my first manuscript, I sent it out to publishers. They responded that I needed further editing and development. English is my second language so I had some problems with grammar and other things. I started my search and ran across Steve. He helped me greatly to improve the structure of the book and challenged my creativity. The process was a great learning experience and I'm proud that my book could be co-authored with a professional writer. I like how my manuscript looks and I am more confident of its success. I would recommend Steve's editing and writing services to anyone who needs help."
"Writing my first book was a bit daunting in itself, but Steve made that disappear with his positive and creative editing skills. You can trust him as a professional with a straightforward approach. It was a pleasure to work with him."
"Thank you for your excellent editing and gracious comments regarding my mss. Thanks again."
-Dr. Terry W. Smith
"I just finished reading over the text once, and I want to applaud the editor for making my writing look like it was produced from a native speaker.
