Gayla Groom: Editor, Book Doctor, Ghostwriter, Copywriter

hand-sculpted house

I bring 25 years of experience as an editor and writer, including:

Copyeditor
Developmental editor
Book doctor
Ghostwriter
Copywriter.

After a quarter-century of editing and writing, I have seen and done it all. Nothing daunts me. Books I helped shape include:

The Hand-Sculpted House: A Practical and Philosophical Guide to Building a Cob Cottage, by Ianto Evans, Michael G. Smith, and Linda Smiley; Chelsea Green Publishing / Real Goods Solar Living. “The patron saint of this book was surely Gayla Groom.”

Alcohol Can Be a Gas!: Fueling an Ethanol Revolution for the 21st Century, by David Blume; International Institute for Ecological Agriculture / Mother Earth News. “Gayla did a great job of wrestling the book into shape, with both editing and layout.”

Your Green Home: A Guide to Planning a Healthy, Environmentally Friendly New Home, by Alex Wilson; New Society Publishers / Mother Earth News. “I am grateful for the superb copyediting that Gayla Groom did on this manuscript.”

  • Hola, he visto tu página y me he quedado intrigado. No sé si lo que ofreces son tus libros o la posibilidad de publicarlos. Tampoco sé si trabajas en español o sólo en inglés. Yo vivo en Panajachel, soy corrector de estilo y he escrito una novela para jóvenes del lago Atitlán, ambientada en San Pedro La Laguna. Si vives en por esta zona y hablas español tal vez podríamos encontrarnos para platicar más en concreto. Muchas gracias por tu atención
