Thank you for stopping by Janice Phelps, LLC to learn about the solutions I offer writers and publishers, mainly book editing, design, and illustration. I have brought over 250 books "to life" in the last 14 years, and I love the creative, ever-evolving business of publishing. It takes concentrated effort, but is a rewarding endeavor, to take a manuscript and transform it into something worthwhile to be shared with readers, inviting them into the world within the book's pages, whether that book is printed on paper or held within an ebook device.
I've always thought of an editor as a person standing in for the reader and communicating with the writer, a go-between of sorts. The book designer is like that as well. I am first and foremost a reader and therefore take the responsibility of bringing a writer's written words to book form seriously.
All the best,
