Are you lost inside your own book and can’t get out?
Do you feel trapped in a wilderness of writing rules and endless rewrites?
Does the process of publishing seem overwhelming, and you don’t know what to do?
First of all, let me congratulate you on writing your book. Many people think about writing but never get started or never finish. Now you have done the bulk of the work and are ready for the next step. You want your book to shine so you can launch it out into the world to share with others. Where do you go from here?
Since I am also a writer, I know the investment you’ve put into your work and how much your book is a part of you. I have helped others with their fiction and nonfiction manuscripts, and I would love to work on your book with you.
Have a look around, and don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like a free sample edit of 1–2 pages of your manuscript, a recommendation of what your book needs, and an estimate of the total cost of editing work.
Take care and happy writing,
Having a stranger go over the wordsmithing of months can be very, very hard. After all, who are they to come in and tear down the labor of your heart? We all know editing is required, several times, before a story can be considered ready for the general public. That doesn’t mean we have to like it…
Marie Dvorak makes the process easier. Her wit and charm make her feel like a friend from the very beginning. Her editing is top notch and each suggestion leaves you wondering why you didn’t do it that way on the first place. She makes the authors words shine without changing the style. Her suggestions make me shine without the cut to the heart many editors cause when they callously tear into your script.
Thank You Marie, for your wonderful, workmanlike, editing.

I have the utmost respect for Marie Dvorak. Her editing work is fast, solid, professional, and imaginative. She edited several of my stories and as good as I thought they were, she made them jump off the page. She is #1 on my speed dial!

Ms. Dvorak gave a very thorough, very detailed assessment of my manuscript. Her comments were both insightful and invaluably helpful. With her recommendations I was able to further develop my story, add a sense of depth to my characters, and convey the intended message successfully. I would happily recommend her services.
Kiah Stephens (manuscript evaluation of a Christian romance novel)
Marie Dvorak’s contribution significantly improved the quality of my book and increased my confidence to move ahead with publication. A positive review of the book in a Canadian Air Force magazine attests to the value of her services. She was easy to work with and responded to each chapter submission in a timely fashion.
