"I have to throw out another huge thank you for Jason Eiker-Wiles, my editor. This young man is fantastic. When you read this book and it seems like I may have driven past a library once in my life it's because the man takes tremendous pride in his work. I can guarantee you that 'mistakes' you see in this manuscript are purposeful, selected for enhancing the narrative voice. His attention to detail and the fact that he knew what 'trickin' is and what a 5%er is kind of threw me for a loop. He and I are at the beginning of a very glorious partnership"

"Jason is the man and is not only awesome at the technical side of editing the english language but also understands where I'm coming from as a writer as he is also a writer. A pleasure to work with and I definitely have him in mind for the next 2 projects I'm launching in the coming weeks. Highly Recommended."

Hello! Thanks for reading. I have an M.A. in English literature from California Polytechnic University Pomona. I have edited papers for submission to journals and conferences for my peers, mentored and sat on a review board for a colleague's thesis, and edited dissertation chapters. I enjoy editing because it exposes me to other interesting fields and ideas. I like to learn new things, and if I didn't, I wouldn't have been insane enough to go for my graduate degree.
Writing can become a roller coaster of emotion. The best piece of advice I have received when it comes to self-editing is that you sometimes have to take your favorite part of the work and cut it out. Oftentimes, the part we love the most is the weakest part. This is why sometimes an outside view is invaluable.
As your editor, I can help you cut the fluff, organize your thoughts, and provide constructive criticism to bring out the potential of your work.

I've written professionally about aerospace, trains, cars and almost anything that else that has an engine. I'm familiar with the technology, the nuts-and-bolts mechanical issues and conversant in the culture of the industries involved in these fields. Techno/mechanical writing expertise -- and the research skill necessary to do the job -- is highly portable and can be applied to many different topics in science and industry. Always love to take on a new challenge ...
