to his credit.
He edits and critiques nonfiction,
creative-nonfiction, fiction, poetry, self-help books, and children's books. He can copy-edit, proofread,
and assist in the development of cover letters, resumes, scholarly articles, and admissions essays as
well as compose and edit a variety of technical documents, including grants, proposals, and web-copy. He

Andrew promptly meets deadlines, can edit either via track changes or hand, and can
meet with clients in-person, on the phone, or via video-conference. Whether you have an idea you want to discuss, a manuscript
that needs intense revision, or a finished product you are interested in self-publishing or submitting for publication, Andrew
can help make it happen.
"Andrew's dedication and unwavering support
through two drafts has helped me realize my dream of completing my first novel. His advice is always pertinent and encouraging,
and he is always there when Writer's Block creeps in. I would recommend Andrew as a writing coach and editor to anyone willing
to put the time and effort into creating a superior piece of writing. I couldn't have done it without him!" -- Jana
Thurman, aspiring novelist
His rates are based on those of the Editorial Freelancer’s Association.
Each project, of course, is unique as are each individual's needs, so rates are negotiable.
Andrew will gladly review a brief sample of the project in question and discuss options for a small fee. He
can also provide samples and client references upon request. Please contact him for details.
"Andrew is a true professional and a breeze to work with. He
has an expert editorial eye, meets deadlines, communicates clearly with authors, editors, and publishers, and is as practically
minded as he is creative. He took Apocalypse Now: Poems and Prose from the End of Days from drawing board to book
and helped elevate my publishing company to the next level. Whether you are writing your first novel or prepping a manuscript
for publication, I highly recommend him." -- Joanne Merriam, owner Upper Rubber Boot Books

"Andrew’s skillset ranges from nonfiction to fiction to poetry. He understands mechanics as well as popular,
current styles of writing. His knowledge and knowhow have matured my writing, and his recommendations for reading and research
are spot on. As an aspiring author, I want to learn as much as I can without being told what to do. Andrew reins me in when
I need it without forgetting my work is mine, not his. This push-pull approach allows me to improve as a writer without losing
my voice or changing my beliefs. I’ve worked with Andrew for over a year. I know he puts as much thought into his editing
and coaching as he does his own writing. I wouldn’t be the writer I am without him." -- Kenneth Northington,
