Welcome, dear author! 

Crystal Durnan

Congratulations on finishing your book! Whether it's your first novel or your twentieth, few achievements rival the satisfaction of completing a manuscript you've labored over for months or maybe even years.  But if that manuscript is riddled with errors, many readers—agents, publishers, or your audience—will simply stop reading it. Don't let your hard work go to waste. Give your book the best possible chance of success by hiring a professional editor.

That editor is me, Crystal. I’ll comb carefully through your text, correcting errors and identifying opportunities to improve flow, clarity, and consistency. The result will be a flawless book that reflects all your dedication and hard work. Together, we can turn your labor of love into a work of art that you’re proud to share with the world.

If you are looking for editorial services offered to non-fiction writers, students, and businesses, please head on over to my non-fiction page.

Services offered:


The major revisions on your project are done, and you just need a fresh pair of eyes to make a final pass for grammar, spelling, or punctuation errors.


A deeper edit that includes correcti-ng minor errors, but also identifying issues with clarity, word choice, and sentence structure.

Line Editing

A step above copy editing, line editing addresses the creative content, use of language, and ensures consistency of writing style.

Chapter Blocks

Having your work edited in smaller chunks, rather than all at once, allows you to space out editing payments according to your financial needs.

If you're ready to take the next step with your manuscript, please contact me at for a discussion of your needs and a free, 1200 word sample edit.
