Am I the right editor for you? I don’t know. I won’t be right for everyone. Here’s what I can tell you:
I have been writing and editing for over 15 years. My novel, The Secret Sense of Wildflower, was named one of the Best Books of 2012 by the esteemed Kirkus Reviews. I love the written word and I am an excellent editor. I am devoted to helping writers create the BEST BOOK they can.
What My Clients Are Saying. . .
“Susan Gabriel was a treasure, as she has been for over a decade, in helping me bring this manuscript together.”
— Bud Harris, author of Sacred Selfishness and The Fire and the Rose
“I absolutely loved the insightful editing job Susan did for me. Her suggestions addressed multiple levels of loose ends and partially-developed themes. It was immensely helpful in rounding out the book, and in maturing an unripe manuscript.”
— Bonnie Willow, author of Love, Light & Business
“Susan Gabriel is a mentor’s mentor, combining a counselor’s sensitivity with proven editorial skill and delightful writing acumen. Her contributions to my writing: captivating plot, vivid characters, real-life dialogue, and scenes that speak to the senses. Any writer who works with Susan—from beginner to recognized professional—will not be disappointed.
—Rich Schram, author of The Double-Dime, a mystery approaching completion
“Susan Gabriel is an excellent editor of literary fiction or non-fiction. I have used her talents on short stories and my current novel-in-progress because Susan has the uncanny ability to spot the work’s rhythm and sight the “sharps and flats.” I recommend her without reservation.”
— Nancy Purcell, Author, Teacher, 2003 NC Writer’s Network Writer in Residence
“Susan Gabriel has edited and improved several of my fiction pieces. Her editing is insightful and sensitive, and her efforts have served as a wonderful guideline and help for my writing. Her ability to sense the intent, direction and the thrust of a work of fiction not only improves the text but serves as an advanced education in writing. She is a brilliant editor.”
- Bud Shapard, author of Chief Loco: Apache Peacemaker
