2nd spot in the Epublishing House category
My editing experience with MIH kept me focused and on task. Why? Because I worked with Nancy Bell (editor) and Antonia Tiranth (line editor), two wonderful women who didn't mind sharing their wisdom with consideration and respect of my style and writing voice. My novel came away stronger and so did my own wisdom of the writing craft.

I have had a number of novels published by various publishing houses and none of the editors although precise and thorough are a match for the editors and cover artists at Museitup.
Your people are kind, considerate and most important, gentile with my work. never harsh or demanding, just helpful and professional which is so important to we sensitive types that think every word we right is perfect. I love having my short stories caressed by your staff and published by you....

Hi, I'm Diane Barr and I write Urban Fantasy with a taste of erotica for the MuseItHot division of the Muse.
My editors; Lea Schizas and Nicole Zoltak have totally helped make my manuscript into an amazing story. I have read many times that the editing process can turn a person into puddles, but this is far from mt experience. Lea and Nicole worked with me, asked questions and wanted to know what I envisioned and I was able to achieve this with their professionalism, advice, knowledge and senses of humor. I look forward to my next opportunity to work this close with them again and feel so lucky to have such a great relationship with the Muse family.

My Name is L.J. Holmes and I write mainstream and erotica for Muse Publishing, Inc.
Having had experience with editors before coming to Muse, I am in the position of being able to assess our editors from the point of previous experience. My content editor is the most accessible editor I have ever worked with. She makes time for you even to the point of giving you her cell phone number.
I have also worked with three line editors so far...each of them takes the time to keep at it until we are all satisfied with the final script...none of this ONE LINE EDIT ONLY mandate here.
There is a willigness here to explain the whys and wherefores of editing procedures. It's not a case of the editor saying, "We're doing it this way because I say so."
Those editors I have not worked with on manuscripts, I have come to know via other avenues. I watch how they conduct themselves in our chat rooms, how they pariticipate on our Blog Talk Radio Shows, and I'm never left unimpressed.
I love being at Muse and my editors are a very strong part of why.
Carrie RO as a content editor is an absolute genius. Her talent, humor, and guiding hand made an experience rumored to be excruciating…exciting. She polished the words of my manuscript into a masterpiece.
The experience I've had with MuseItUp editors, Fiona Young-Brown and Penny Ehrenkranz, has been first-rate in every way. Both editors know their craft, are easy to work with, and are appreciative and honest in their assessment of the work at hand. Between the two of them, I can honestly say my two books turned out tighter and better, the holy grail of good editing. I cannot express how grateful I am to thesse fine and talented people. I look forward to working with them again and only hope I am lucky enough to do so.
