I love books. I love editing. I love watching words flow and ebb on the page. I love when it works. and I even love when it doesn’t work. I love the ability to find the right way to fix a sentence to make it flow. I love being a wordsmith.
My job is to provide the help you need to achieve your goals with your writing.
Dara Rochlin Book Doctor offers a full suite of editing services including:
Developmental/ Project Editing
Self Publishing – Create Space, Lulu, Smashwords
Fact Checking & Research
Every writer does not need the same amount of effort and time even when selecting the same service, so my intention is to customize the price based on the writer’s needs.
I give you an honest opinion of your story with specific notes, comments and questions to strengthen your writer’s voice. I brainstorm with you and offer advice on how to make your book more marketable, to give you the best final product before you go to publication.
First contact is preferably via email – DaraR68 (at) gmail (dot) com. I will do a sample edit of a chapter (up to five pages) for you to see how I work. Then I will send you back the sample edit with commentary and suggestions. Next step is the Quote. Once we work out the terms, then the Contract.

Word of the Day: MERAKI. (adj). Greek. Meraki describes what happens when you leave a piece of yourself (your soul, creativity, or love) in your work, whatever it may be.
If we work together, I promise that with every edit and revision, you will get a piece of Meraki from me.
