About Our Editors

NY Book Editors is a premiere affiliation of editors with extensive experience from New York’s major publishing houses. We’ve edited for Penguin Random House, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Hachette, and prestigious independent publishers.

Our booklists include New York Times Bestsellers, winners of the Pulitzer Prize, National Book Award, Pushcart Prize, and more. A booklist is a list of books that an editor acquires or edits during their tenure at a publishing house. The reputation of an editor is based on the books they’ve edited.

This is why you receive an editor’s profile from us, which includes their biography and a booklist. It’s important to see how experienced the person you’re considering actually is.

Testimonials

  • “I just wanted to let you know that Dan was great to work with and did a great job on my manuscript. He offered really great suggestions to make it stronger as well as edits. Thank you for partnering me with someone who knows the vacation rental business, too!” — Kris Getzie

  • “Thanks for the quick turnaround-always appreciated, and WOW! I loved William’s suggestions and wish I would have used him for previous novels-the best edit I’ve had.” — Sean Dow

  • “I found it hugely beneficial and will take Maggie’s suggestions to heart as I move forward. She posed excellent questions and offered advice that makes perfect sense to me. You offer a wonderful service, and I am glad I found it.” — John Greenwald

     

  • “I thought Ronit’s edit was extremely helpful and using her notes and edits I was able to complete two subsequent drafts. I am very happy with my latest draft and submitted it to “Reader’s Favorite” where I received a five star review of the manuscript.” — Terry Coffey

  • “Please let William know how pleased I am at the amount of work he’s put into my novel. Having read his editorial letter several times, I’m both impressed and pleased by the depth of his immersion into my story and the thoughtfulness of his comments and recommendations.” — Deak Wooten

  • “I want to thank you again for the Victoria hook–up. NY Book Editors have exceeded my expectations—in fact, NYBE has blown my mind!” — Alfred Porter

  • “Over the weekend, I spent more time going through William’s memo and the comments on my manuscript, and I’m incredibly impressed with the work he did. I am especially grateful for his suggestions about how to strengthen the plot, in part by eliminating story lines that don’t contribute as much as they could to the central narrative arc. Thanks very much for your help. Again, William did a really fantastic job.” — Beth Castrodale

  • “Well, what struck me as I was going through the copyedited version of our book is David’s attention to detail and nuance. He’s excellent with making sure tense is consistent throughout the story and knows exactly the right words to choose in order to bring a feeling or sentiment coming from a character across more effectively.” Warren Adler, Author of Red Herrings
