Your friendly and helpful book editor

WHETHER YOU ARE A BEGINNING WRITER OR A PRO, EVERY BOOK OR MANUSCRIPT YOU WRITE NEEDS EDITORIAL FEEDBACK. THIS IS WHAT I AM HERE FOR: FOR YOU.

If this is the first time you’ve been here, glad you could make it! If you’re returning, glad you stopped by.

First off, you pronounce my name, Lisa Rojany Buccieri: ROW-ZHA-NEE BOO-CHEE-EH-REE. A mouthful, I know.

I am both a professional editor and an oft-published writer. I run my own business, EDITORIAL SERVICES OF LOS ANGELES (ESOLA), in which I help writers make their work the best it can be while getting it ready for submission to publishing houses—or self-publishing across a variety of platforms. I also do developmental creative consulting and book packaging for publishing houses and toy companies.

Under “Editing Services” you can find information about my business, EDITORIAL SERVICES OF LOS ANGELES, as well as details about my professional publishing credentials. (If you want to know what people say about me, go to “Client Recommendations” link at right.)

For those of you returning to visit, I've had a busy few years.

Aside from three children whose carpool, afterschool, and social lives need tending to, I seem to have landed in a universe in which sleep has become the last priority. You know what they say: I’ll get enough sleep when I'm dead and buried. Right?

As such, 2013 started off at a brisk pace. Lots of books to edit as well as tons of new clients self-publishing and writing e-books, so I'm even doing page design and layout for novels and nonfiction. On January 1 the second, updated edition of my bestselling book, WRITING CHILDREN'S BOOKS FOR DUMMIES, which continues to occupy top slots at Amazon and in bookstores, got released. See info about a selection of 100+ books I wrote under “Professional Writing” in the menu tabs.

In 2010 I joined the New York Journal of Books as Publisher & Editor in Chief. This on-time book review site featuring in-depth reviews by credentialed experts in their fields is an online-only venture that launched in October 2010 to rave reviews. Publisher's Weekly wrote that NYJB's mission is "to fill the gap left by the newspaper book review sections that have folded." (11.22.10) We've since been quoted on dozens of book covers, been in the New Yorker, and are even cited in the 2012 Congressional Record.

Because I’ve been so busy, I’ve been unable to lead writing workshops, but I can refer you to colleagues who can guide you in those endeavors, so email me if you are looking for writing workshops.

If you have any suggestions or comments, please email ESOLA by clicking the link below.

And even though the economy still bites, we do have HOPE, don’t we? (Hope means always having something pending in some editor's in-box.) So keep writing! And let me know if you need help with YOUR latest book! Need-based and professional discounts available to all serious writers.

All the best to you,

Lisa

Your professional book editor
