Welcome to Demon for Details manuscript editing, and thanks for stopping by.

My name is Faith Freewoman. I’ve been a writer, editor, and occasional indie publisher for more than thirty years, currently work with authors in four countries, and have edited 200+ published indie books. A born demon for details, my favorite pastime has always been making everything from the written word to my environment as fascinating and appealing as possible.

And with the written word? My goal is to edit your manuscript so it flows with the language, rhythms, and voice that best serve the needs of the story, and your characters, plot, and world are compelling.

My specialty is multi-layered, supportive, precision editing, both developmental/content and copy/line editing, with an intuitive, contextual slant . Whether you’re indie publishing or going after an agent or publisher for the first time (or the umpteenth time), a skillful and supportive editor can be a real godsend for your tender, creative psyche, and for your results!

My writing and editing experience runs the gamut from fiction to dance criticism, to all things psychic and spiritual, to scientific journal articles and speeches and presentations by corporate executives.

But my real passion, as a reader, author and editor, is fiction of all sorts — especially romance, romantic suspense, historical romance, women’s fiction, paranormal, sci-fi and fantasy, thrillers, and mysteries.

I have four gifts/skills that I believe make me an exceptional editor:

  • I notice errors even when I’d rather not.
  • I am endlessly fascinated with the nuances of the English language, and its music and rhythms. I especially love investigating the subtle differences that can make one word choice merely okay and another exactly right.
  • I can, and do,  “tell it like it is” without trampling your author vulnerabilities.
  • I’ll let you know if I think personal bias may be part of my reason for believing a character, plot point or aspect of your author voice needs work. And then I leave the decision to edit, omit or leave it as is up to you …

… because, when all’s said and done, it’s YOUR story, and your sensibilities have the deciding vote about how it should be told.
