Hi, I’m Val ~ book editor



that’s what editors are for.

Putting your writing out there, whether it’s a book or blog posts, can be scary. Your writing is out there for thousands or millions of people to read–and scrutinize.

But you have an important story and ideas that NO ONE else can tell for you.

Keep calm. Write on. I’ll take it from here.

I’ve worked with first time authors to New York Times bestselling authors 

When you work with me, you’ll get a teammate who will make your story shine, and leave the mistakes behind.

 Testimonies From Authors Like You

Val didn't just make my book better, with her notes she made me better as a writer. Before working with Val, I actually thought editors were a commodity; a typo is a typo! How wrong I was. Val blew me away with her accuracy, focus on consistency, and ability to improve my style throughout. Definitely my first choice for editing moving forward.

For a long time, I loved the idea of writing a book but never actually wrote anything. Once I got going and completed the first draft, Val was invaluable in helping me turn a messy manuscript into a book that I am very proud of. If you are working on a book, but don't know where to start with the editing, do yourself a favor and hire Val.

As a book coach, when I look for editors to work with my authors, I find the most important factor for a successful working relationship is the editor's ability to understand the author's needs. Val from Keep Calm Write On does exactly that. She is communicative, hardworking, and really gets a piece of writing to be the best that it can be. I am impressed with her professionalism and timeliness. I will recommend her again to my coaching clients.

I’ve used lots of editors in the past, but Val is truly the best. She’s my go-to editor and has never let me down. She understands what I do, makes my books so much better, without losing my voice.
