Self-publishing has taught me many things, and finding the right editor is one of the most important pieces to this job. Julie met and exceeded any expectations I could have had for an editor. She didn’t skip any part of her job, and her hard effort took away a lot of stress for me. My experience has been amazing and I’m looking forward to working with her again in the future …” [click “Read More”]

“From start to finish, writing a book is magical. As an author I expect nothing but the best editing on each precious piece of work so many hours and emotions go into making. And Julie Sturgeon is one of the best editors out there. Editing is where a lot of the magic happens. Julie really makes books shine for their debut. She is professional and easy to collaborate with. I look forward to having Julie as my editor again in the future.”

“… After I dive deep into the work she’s done, I know I’m pulling the essence of the characters and story from often over-written prose and obfuscation of characters and plot. She makes me work hard, but the result is a book I’m proud to own as mine, with deep acknowledgement of the editor who made it possible.”

“…sometimes, we (authors) can feel as though the editor is taking our book away from us. They want us to cut scenes we think we can’t live without, change personalities of characters we love, and sometimes even adjust plotlines, and in this process, we worry that our book will no longer be our own. Until we read the final proof, and realize, Ohmigod, it’s so much better than it was before Julie got ahold of it!” … [click “Read More”]

“Julie’s been down quite a few story avenues with me—most recently down into the core of a nuclear reactor—and every time, she makes the trip more compelling, sharpening this image, tightening that paragraph arc, whipping that character into doing what he’s supposed to be doing—all in the service of the reader experience. Julie will never muffle the author’s voice. With her wealth of knowledge and keen instincts informing her every decision, she’s never afraid to give it straight, but always politely, and in a manner that encourages discussion. Julie is quite simply a joy to work with … every author’s dream.”

“I’ve worked with other editors in the past, and Julie’s definitely the best. She will do everything from correct glaring technical errors to altering a small turn of phrase. My work improved so much under her keen editorial eye. I’ve picked up on editing tips from her and now use them in my new drafts. She won’t just edit your manuscript – she’ll improve your writing flow and leave you with lasting editorial advice for your future works. If you want an editor that will shape up your manuscript to the best it can be, then you want Julie.”
