Helping Your Work Shine
Welcome to Demon for Details, which is — as friends and family will assure you — me!
My name is Faith Freewoman, and I’ve been a writer, editor and occasional indie publisher for more than 30 years. A born demon for details, my favorite pastime has always been making everything from the written word to my garden or desk as attractive and as close to perfect as humanly possible.
My specialty is fast, precision and — for individuals — supportive copy editing. Whether you’re self publishing, or going after an agent or publisher for the first time (or the umpteenth time), a supportive editor can be a real godsend for your tender creative psyche!
My writing and editing experience runs the gamut from dance criticism and all things psychic and spiritual to scientific journal articles and presentations by corporate executives.
But my real passions (as a reader, author and editor) are for fiction — especially romance, romantic suspense, paranormal, thrillers and mysteries — and nonfiction books and articles about psychology, personal development, sustainability and the natural world.
I have four gifts/skills that I believe make me an exceptional editor:
- I notice errors even when I’d rather not.
- I am endlessly fascinated with the nuances of the English language and its music and rhythms. I especially love investigating the subtle differences that can make one word choice merely okay and another exactly right.
- I can, and do, “tell it like it is” without trampling your author vulnerabilities.
- I’ll let you know if I think personal bias may be part of my reason for believing a character, plot point or aspect of your author voice needs work. And then I leave the decision to edit, omit or leave it as is up to you …
… because, when all’s said and done, it’s YOUR story, and your sensibilities have the deciding vote about how it should be told.
