An editor who is not only invested in my story, but in my voice, is incredibly important to me, and Stephen was exactly that. I learned so much from working with him and I've become a better storyteller because of it.
Stephen is a phenomenal editor who works with heart and a true passion for the craft of editing. Getting a story just right is always top of his mind. His attention to detail and working collaboratively with an author makes him an absolute pleasure to work with and a gem in the editing community.
Stephen was really easy to work with. He made me think about parts of my book that needed work, and steered me through the necessary changes to make it shine. He has a great sense of humor (and he needed it when he saw my first draft!) which always makes the work easier and fun. Stephen also has a good eye for detail and continuity within the story which helped a lot as I had a lot of established characters in my book. All in all - a pleasure to work with.
After four years and ten books, Stephen's creativity and literary expertise has never let me down. You want your book to be awesome? Hire him. He's the best there is.
Stephen Morgan has the goods! He doesn't just edit, he strips back the layers of your story and digs deep into its DNA to help you see your writing through a fresh lens. Armed with a keen eye for structure as well as detail, he'll coax out your best and help lift your writing to another level. And he'll do so with an abundance of patience and good humor. I couldn't have asked for a better editorial experience.
Without Stephen, I very well may not be published at all right now. He saw potential in me and was willing to take the time and effort to help me bring my book to life! Since then he's been incredibly supportive and helpful to me and my entire career. I couldn't imagine a better editor!
Stephen Morgan is everything you could only wish for in an editor: hard working, passionate, creative, fast, experienced, as well as the easiest and most fun to work with. He saw potential in my manuscript and helped me transform it into the best possible version of it that it could be. His attention to detail, structure, continuity, and characters is extraordinary. I’ve learned many valuable things and managed to elevate my writing thanks to his guidance and expertise. So if you’re looking for the best, look no further.
Every writer needs an editor and I feel privileged to have worked with Stephen on my debut novel. Having someone pick apart a book you’ve spent months slaving over isn’t easy, but Stephen made the process as enjoyable as possible. He was gentle with his critiques, and from the beginning I knew that he genuinely wanted my manuscript to work. He’s great at honing in on what works and what doesn’t, and offers a clear path to making your book salable. I’ve recommended his services to several authors in my writing groups and I hope to work with him again soon.
Working with Stephen has always been a pleasure. There’s nothing like seeing a consummate professional pull the right threads on a story to show off the author’s talent and help her craft the best possible book. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again.
It was so refreshing to have an editor who was as passionate about my work as I was. Stephen edited two of my books and never failed to push me harder to create a deeper world and make characters who came alive on the paper. He goes above and beyond to make your work as strong as possible, and does it with creativity, patience, and a little bit of humor.
