My goal is to help transform books into remarkable reading experiences. Though authors and publishers are my clients, my job is to advocate for the readers. I help writers improve their writing by performing high quality editing and proofreading services. I collaborate with authors to ensure that their final product is polished, professional, and engaging.

I enjoy helping writers make their manuscripts become what they truly intended to present to the world—strong writing that is free from pesky, distracting errors and that readers can’t wait to talk about and share with their friends. I work with authors to help them put their best writing into the world.

I highly recommend Crystal Nevin as a professional editor. She was a pleasure to work with because of her clear, responsive communications and commitment to deadlines. I was very impressed by her skillful ability to pinpoint specific areas in my manuscript that needed changing, and then would come up with alternative writing suggestions that mimicked my style. Her comments and critiques push my writing skills to a higher level. She has become my go-to editor for all my future writing projects. I feel lucky to have found her.
