Welcome to Adirondack Editing!

You’ve been staring at your book for months, if not years, and you’ve revised and rewritten as needed. You can’t look at it another time without going cross-eyed, and even if you did, you probably wouldn’t even see the potential errors. You’re all set to send it off to your readers—you think.

That’s where Adirondack Editing (AdkEd) comes in. 


Eagle-eyed editors to the rescue!


  A computer program can’t determine the context of your words:

  • “Joan, just put the glass down over <there, their, or they’re?>.”

  • Dave showed his buddies the 24-<caret, karet, carat, or carrot?> ring he bought.

  • The elephant glared at the car as it followed <it’s or its?> calf.

  • “I’ll be right there, Mom! As soon as I’ve <passed or past?> this level!”

  • Orlo loved being a movie inspector, strolling down the <aisle, I’ll, or isle?> in his new uniform.

  • See the <peek, peak, or pique?> of that mountain over there? 

AdkEd offers professional proofreading, copyediting, and substantive editing (a full-package edit) for fiction books. 

  • Did you get the details of your story down so that readers understand what’s happening?

  • Did you use the best noun or verb for the situation?

  • Are your characters and plot interesting, engaging, and clear?

  • Is your dialogue crisp and succinct? 

  • Is your book ready to be self-published, or sent out to agents and publishers? 


Get the professional answers to those important questions in a warm, friendly, engaging manner that will assist you to be the best writer you can be. 

We also offer other services to writers: Text Analyses, Professional Evaluations, and Beta Reads. These are explained on our Non-Editing Services page.
