Some of the projects I’ve worked on as an independent editor, as reported in Publishers Marketplace, include . . .
April 19, 2018 – MAN FAST, by Natasha Scripture
Digital: Non-fiction: General
Poet and former emergency spokesperson for the United Nations Natasha Scripture’s MAN FAST, one woman’s dating detox turns into a globetrotting journey of self-discovery and a spiritual detective story, in which the author steps away from the demands of modern life, from the subversive pressures to get coupled, and moves into a space where she allows herself to become fully present and awake—to her grief, to her identity, and to love as a mystical, ever-present force, to Erin Calligan-Mooney at Little A, by Lisa DiMona at Writers House.
April 3, 2018 – THE COMMITTEE OF TRUE AND ACTUAL GREATNESS, by Ash Ambirge
Entrepreneur and founder of The Middle Finger Project Ash Ambirge’s THE COMMITTEE OF TRUE AND ACTUAL GREATNESS, drawing on her working class past to offer no-BS advice on how anyone can take even the worst of circumstances and turn them around to build the life and career they really want, and teaching readers to trust their own voice in a world that would prefer they didn’t, to Stephanie Frerich at Portfolio, by Lisa DiMona at Writers House (world).
February 1, 2017 – TRANS FIGURED, by Brian Belovitch
Brian Belovitch’s TRANS FIGURED: My Journey from Boy to Girl to Woman to Man, the story of how a New England boy discovered drag, moved to New York and transformed into voluptuous downtown nightlife queen Tish Gervais, hobnobbing with Warhol, Fellini, and other celebrities; then descended into drug addiction, alcoholism, and prostitution; got married to an American soldier and moved to Germany as a woman; divorced him, moved back to New York, got clean and sober; then finally decided to manifest his true gender identity by transforming into Brian again while becoming a recovery counselor and marrying the man of his dreams, to Susan Randol at Skyhorse, by Tom Miller at Carol Mann Agency (world).
