Official site for St. Albans' Editorial and Graphics  Services.
Founded in 2010, my main service is the editing and re-writing of various
books for local authors. To date I have edited six books, four from local authors in the Phoenix area, and one from an author in Tennessee, and one from an author in Michigan. Of these five books I have designed the covers for two of them. All my authors seem to be highly appreciative of my work with them. References are available upon request.

I have been an editor of articles, newsletters, pamphlets and books for over thirty years. My prices are gauged to undercut the competition in the larger cities and the large publishing houses. Today the first thing a publisher wants to see is a book which doesn't need any polishing or editing. Publishers have become lazy and greedy, wanting to save money anyway they can. This means the authors usually have to pay for editing, public relations, marketing and other benefits that used to be provided by the publisher.

Most publishing houses offer editing at a rate of 2 to 3 cents per word. I offer my services for 1 to 1.5 cents per word depending on the merits and content of the work I am editing. I can also offer my services as a "pay-as-you-go contract so that an author doesn't have to pay a one lump sum.

I work by contract and each contract is tailored to the project at hand. I can accept PayPal payments, checks or money orders.

Some of the services we offer are:

  • Grammar and Spell checking.
  • Revision and reconstruction.
  • Rewriting.
  • Ghost writing.
  • Proofreading/corrections.
  • Blurbs/Bios/Descriptions/Dedications.
  • Design of interiors with or w/out illustrations.
  • Layout, pagination, headers and footers.
  • Research, footnotes,annotations
  • Cover design (front and back) and flaps for hardcovers.
Many publishers today also want an author to have someone do a synoptic over-view of the work who is not involved with the author or the content of the book. Anything you as a client need in the way of editorial services, I can do it. I have even acted as a PR person and a press agent!
