“Command+Z taught me to organize my ideas and then provided the editing and structure to make the book a 6x bestseller.” 

Chris Cooper

Author of Founder, Farmer, Tinker, Thief: The Four Phases of the Entrepreneur’s Journey

"If you're publishing to tell your story, then your story deserves to be told well. If you're publishing a book to establish yourself as an authority, then you need an editor who will make you look like an expert."

“I never knew what a huge impact a good editor has on a final book. It’s the single best investment you can make in your book. Period.” 

Max Frenzel

Author of Time Off: A Practical Guide to Building Your Rest Ethic and Finding Success Without Stress

"Looking forward to working with Ann on our next one!"

“Before working on Will It Fly, I didn’t know developmental editors existed. Then I found out just how great it was to work with one.”

"I received invaluable feedback from Ann."

“Working with Ann will free you up to be the creative spirit you really are.” 

Brigit Esselmont

Author of Everyday Tarot: Unlock Your Inner Wisdom and Manifest Your Future

"Ann took my big lofty (and often wordy) ideas and distilled them down into a clear, crisp manuscript that was infused with my own unique energy and style."

“Writing can be a torturous affair. Working with Ann helped me overcome resistance and turn the misery into magic.” 

 Jonas Altman

Author of Shapers: Reinvent the Way You Work and Change the Future

"If you want to get clear on the most pressing changes you can make for the biggest impact on your manuscript, Ann is the person you need to call."

I help authors write an irresistibly compelling book that sells their work, raises their profile, and gains them more exposure—instead of churning out uninspired, predictable content that sells them short.
