About Me:
I've condensed some 20 books for Reader's Digest Canada, and I know how to get rid of material that doesn't push the story forward. I cut books from an average of 75,000 words to 5,000 words, the length Canadian Reader's Digest stipulated for its book sections at the back of the magazine. I got no complaints from authors, and some were astonished that I could keep the gist of the story while cutting so much from the original.

I also worked with dozens of writers on story ideas and revisions during 20 years at Reader's Digest magazine, and I have been a writer myself.

If you want someone who can tell quality from fluff, and guide you accordingly, please contact me. My CV is pasted below:
