The Challenge

Finding the right editor to join your team is no small matter. Not every editor is the right fit for the right author, and the same thought applies the other way: not every client or manuscript is the right fit for the editor. As an author, you need someone invested in your story, your voice, and your success.

The Solution

Pikko’s House provides a complimentary 2-page sample edit to help both parties determine whether it’s a good match. In addition to the sample edit, you can peruse the following on this website: a detailed breakdown of services, a list of experience, a portfolio of published clients’ work, and testimonials.
