Book editing services for writers who want to publish their best ideas

Without sacrificing authenticity (or dreading the entire process)

Command+Z Content is an editing studio specializing in developmental editing, structure, and content development for nonfiction books. I help authors write and refine their ideas so that they capture the attention of their ideal audience and stand out in a competitive landscape. I use a collaborative approach that's a mix of editorial guidance, coaching, and momentum-building partnership—because writing and revising your book doesn't have to feel like a chore. 

When your book needs to be as strong as your brand, when you want it to bring you closer to your goals, I'm the editor to help you get it all done.

Crafting Clarity
