About

Founded in 2016, Polish Point Editing provides quality, personalized services to fiction and non-fiction writers. As a small business owner with a desire to produce professional publications, I accept a few select editing and coaching clients monthly. I’m passionate about wanting my clients to succeed with their books, too. That’s why each new client with a 30,000-plus-word project receives a free webinar I produced on marketing for authors. Even if you’ve written a great book, its success depends largely on developing and positioning your platform.
