 Jon R. Tandler, attorney, Corporate, Intellectual Property & Publishing Law at Ryley Carlock & Applewhite, says:

“I think it can be invaluable for self-published authors to have their manuscripts edited by a professional editor who knows the book industry.  In addition to editing the author’s work, an experienced editor can help the author fashion the literary work for sought-after readers and trade channels.  Mark is a publishing pro and industry veteran – he has a passion for all he does in publishing which is evident in the quality of his work and the respect he has among his peers.”

Haya Leah Molnar, author of Under a Red Sky, winner of the National Jewish Book Award, says:

“Mark Chimsky is a wonderful editor who understands writers, the creative process, and the publishing marketplace. A terrific combination of skills!”

“If you need help with your book proposal, manuscript editing, etc., contact Mark Chimsky. He has years of experience, with multiple publishing houses, and is now consulting independently. He is a dream to work with (was kind of like my therapist during the process). Oh, and there are lots of testimonials, including one from an obscure little country musician–Johnny Cash.”
