It’s official: you’re writing your manuscript. You know you need an editor. An experienced editor. An editor who can help in more ways than one.
Fiction Editing. Nonfiction Editing. Book Coaching. Proofreading.
Whether you’ve written a summary and an outline or a full manuscript, whether you’ve focused on a specific genre, whether you’re telling your history or personal advice: an editor is a vital step in your process to publication.
Editors are manuscripts' best friends
An editor should bring to your manuscript: A fresh set of experienced eyes, knowledge of publishing, and true talent for storytelling. Every manuscript needs friends to help it pass “good” and reach “masterpiece.”
Editors are valuable at multiple stages in the drafting process. From conception to release day, your manuscript can always use a friend.

Cortni Merritt, M.A., Editor at SRD Editing Services
A writer, reader, and poet from childhood, I love a well-told story. After obtaining a BS in psychology, I worked in marketing and sales before returning to complete a BA and an MA in English literature, along with a graduate certificate in publishing and editing.
For nearly a decade, I’ve been a freelance writer and editor with individuals and companies around the world, and although I’d like to say I’ve seen it all, I read something new every day.
I’ve scaled mountains of manuscripts (fiction and non-fiction), and traversed thousands of pages of business documents and websites, touching on innumerable topics and industries. In dark hours, I’ve researched countless subjects in order to become educated before the sunrise, and I thoroughly enjoy the learning experience I receive with every project.
Located in Orlando, Florida, I am available to meet with nearby writers in person, and with long-distance writers using a variety of digital tools. No matter where you are in the world, I’ll be here. Editing.
