Welcome. I’m Angela James, digital publishing grandmaster and top shelf editor. After two decades in publishing working with hundreds of authors and building two publishing imprints, I’ve learned that a sense of humor, a dedication to my to-do list, and an appreciation of deadlines can be important tools in the publishing process.

Highlights a story’s strengths and the author’s unique voice

"Beyond having a keen eye for what isn't working in a story and offering excellent suggestions on how to shore up weaknesses, Angela highlights a story’s strengths and the author’s unique voice, and is an invaluable partner in turning a manuscript into a book to be proud of."

At this site, you can find information on my online courses, in-person workshops and editorial services. My editorial philosophy has always been that editing, and the editor/author relationship, should be a partnership, that author voice is of paramount importance, and that it’s not the editor’s book, it’s the author’s book. My goal is to help you create an excellent reading experience for your readers, while also giving you an excellent experience during the editing process.

My job as the editor is to make your book the best it can be. Constructive criticism is important, but positive feedback, support, and encouragement is even more so. It’s never enough to merely point out mistakes because positive feedback teaches as much as criticism.

Thanks to being a fast, voracious reader who reads hundreds of books across genres each year, I’m an open-minded and non-judgmental reader and editor. After working with me, I want you to feel confident in your writing, and confident in your choice of a partner to help craft the best version of your book. I will help you write the strongest book you can and help you find the audience for the book you want to write.

I look forward to working with you and creating the next book my fellow book lovers will love, remember and recommend.
