Mary Lanham
Bibliomancer Editing
My job is to help identify the most powerful elements of your writing, the stuff with potential to become true gold. Together, we’ll distill your voice and your narrative, so readers won’t just read your work – they’ll be transformed by it.

I specialize in speculative fiction (SFF and literary) and in nonfiction exploring spirituality and personal development. In all of my work, I strive to hit that happy medium where constructive critique meets creative respect.

“When I asked Mary for editorial feedback, I didn’t realize that she would help me see my story in a completely new way. Mary’s feedback was exactly what I needed to deepen my ideas and move forward with a much stronger piece of fiction. I would work with her again in a heartbeat!” – Nada P., science fiction writer

Nicole Whisler
Whisler Edits
I’m a developmental editor and book coach who specializes in working with writers of fantasy novels. Whether you intend to self-publish or publish traditionally, I will work to ensure your story has a “beating heart”—a theme or relevance that draws readers in and resonates deep within them. I aim to build honest, lasting relationships with writers who want their novels to reach their full potential.

Story construction has always fascinated me. After graduating summa cum laude in 2010 with a B.A. in English Education, I taught English and creative writing for six years. Currently, I co-organize a writing critique group and am a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association in addition to PEN.

“Nicole’s first editing and big-picture report blew me away. Her talent for reviewing a story goes beyond practice and schooling. There is a level of insightfulness that strikes me as innate.” -Barbara L., Iowa

Polly Kummel
Polly Kummel LLC
I have been freelancing as a nonfiction book editor for more than twenty years, for both university and trade presses as well as individual authors. I work as a developmental editor, copyeditor, line editor, and substantive editor. I also edit academic journal articles as well as those aimed at a more general audience – in my previous incarnation I was a newspaper editor at metro dailies, including Newsday and the San Jose Mercury News. Thanks to my journalism training, I am fast, have a reverence for deadlines (I have a clock in my head), and an eagle eye for problems—authors marvel at my ability to catch discrepancies, inconsistencies, and redundancies often hundreds of pages apart. My motto is “Never give a critic a free lunch.”
