Hi there! Perhaps you love to write or enjoy reading what others have written. You’ve certainly come to the right place! As a published author and a professional editor who edits full time, I completely understand what it’s like to work with words so that they communicate those burning thoughts inside us. I’d love to chat about writing, editing, and books with you!

For You, the Writer

If you’re looking for a range of editing services, please know that my clients are new and published authors; some have even finaled in or won contests—and I’m so proud of their hard work and accomplishments!

“Tisha Martin has a passion for encouraging authors and editors in which she seeks to bridge their relationships as they work together for the good of the publishing industry that offers readers books to be remembered for a lifetime.”

If your manuscript is not ready for editing yet, don’t worry! Each month, I blog about how you can take your manuscript self-editing to the next level so that you’ll be better prepared for an editor to team up with you. In my blog posts, I discuss things like what is good dialogue, how to create dynamic characters, and how to choose the best scene for your story. Sign up to have my blog posts delivered to your inbox so you’ll never miss a self-editing tip or inspiring message!

For You, the Reader

Do you like reading historical fiction where characters strive to make the best out of a bad situation? Do you like reading about horses, the world wars, and little known history facts? Do you enjoy author interviews and book giveaways? I’d love to keep in touch with you through my newsletter and my blog as I share my writing and research journey!

Can’t wait to see you on the inside!
