What’s New?

Seriously without Marian I would have failed as a writer. Good plot awful grammar. Marian took me by the hand, and literally taught me how to write correctly. Truly a great mentor. I would highly recommend using any services that Marian provides. I certainly will be in the future.

As an indie writer that has just started self-publishing, Marian’s editorial skills were invaluable. She was concise, thorough and did it in a very smart way. Her technique of using a 3 part “ledger” to explain why certain things had to be edited was crucial to me as a writer and definitely a learning curve as to what not to do. I never realized how many mistakes I had made until she showed me. Thanks Marian!

Marian did an excellent job critiquing my most recent book. The detail she gave it was highly valuable, and it bumped up the quality of the overall project. She caught things that not only did I miss, but 15 other beta readers also missed as well. If you are someone who is considering her services, I’m sure your project will benefit from her work.



The Writer’s Life

This is the excerpt for your very first post.

At Arboretum Press, we’re indie writers too.  All the issues you’re having, we’ve had. That’s why we offer affordable editorial services, as we believe in building a supportive, collaborative indie writing community.  Even if you just want a pair of eyes that don’t belong to friends or family to read your work, let us know!

And we do barter work, too:  for example, editorial for cover design.  Send us a proposal…if you ask nicely, the worst we can do is say ‘no’ nicely, and the best may be very good indeed!
