book editing.

Great books need meticulous, cooperative editors.

Here are some of the arbitrary subjects I’ve become a dilettante expert in as a result of various book editing projects over the years: marketing technology, geotechnology, environmentalism, modern poetry, beer brewing, how to cook with leftovers, yoga, mindfulness, San Francisco’s civic art.

quote markWorking with Joslyn McIntyre is like working with someone who’s known me all my life-—and somehow knows what that needs to look like in story format. Joslyn took my book’s individual stories and created a gripping, continuous plot line, even though most of them had been written independent of the others. She’s dependable, personable, and inexhaustibly creative.

quote markI love that you think for me.  So great not to always be the one with responsibilities for everything.  What you’re accomplishing on all ends of the spectrum is really rewarding, productive, awe inspiring and loving.

quote markJoslyn McIntyre has done an incredible job editing my book on the topic of spirituality and business. It has been quite an undertaking, and not an easy subject to edit, but she has been able to pay attention to details, deliver exactly what she promises both in terms of content and timing, and she is a good communicator.

quote markJoslyn’s editing skills are amazing. She read my first book and hit me back with 8 pieces of advice that changed everything for me. Her edits and suggestions are incredibly insightful and she basically just understands how the universe works. I would send my work to her for honest and beneficial feedback before anyone else.
