Editing is quality control for your content. If it's done right, no one will notice it. If not, EVERYONE will...and not in a good way!

That's where I come in. I'm James, aka The Master Wordsmith(TM), and I am a quality control connoisseur for clear, consistent, and compelling content. My superpower is caring more about making your content truly awesome than anyone else does (except you, of course!).

I've been editing content for B2B companies, PR/marketing agencies, freelance writers, and branded business experts since 2014. I've worked with over 200 clients on everything from 1000-word articles to bestselling business books. Currently I edit for two of the best-known B2B/SaaS sites on the internet, as well as multiple marketing agencies and the occasional book author.

Clients have described me as "a reassuring presence in an otherwise stressful process," "an editor who cared about our words as much as we did," "a mentor who will hold the line for what's truly best for the work," and "the solution to all my writing problems."

When I'm not helping amazing authors and agencies uplevel their words, you can find me singing Christmas carols in full Victorian costume, exploring Atlanta's amazing restaurant scene, hiking and playing board games with my partner Lindsay, snuggling our two cats (Gabby and Alexander Hamilcat), and checking out more library books than I can carry.
