“Thank you, Aysha, for never changing my voice! You are an excellent editor. You helped me complete my book, identify publishers, craft a great query letter and be under contract in two weeks. You’re awesome!” – Jan Helling Croteau, author of Perform It! A Complete Guide To Young People’s Theatre

When a good writer teams with a good editor — one who questions, researches, suggests, refines, and instructs — good things happen. Hopefully, great things!

I believe every writer needs an editor; and every successful writer knows this.

As a professional editor and coach for more than 20 years, my editing repertoire includes four novels, a dozen nonfiction books, and hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles, plus countless pieces of corporate communications, marketing and instructional materials, web and blog sites... and a self-published book of short stories. You can read more about self-publishing and my book at

While general editing (substantive change), copyediting (to improve style, formatting and accuracy of text) and proofreading, have traditionally been three different jobs within the publishing industry, today’s fast-paced electronically-produced articles and manuscripts need a comprehensive, holistic approach. I incorporate all three, along with keen distillation of your ideas, instruction and encouragement.

Working with authors at any stage in their career and in any genre or form (books, newspapers, magazines, academic papers, corporate publications, etc.), my goal is to:

    • increase the writer’s understanding of “good writing”
    • strengthen your individual “voice”
    • improve connection with your audience
    • strategize market placement and sale
    • leverage research and materials for more opportunities
    • help get and keep you on track to accomplish your goals


If you have a project and are uncertain whether you need an editor, email me a page or two. I will be happy to perform a sample edit on your work and make recommendations. This way, we’ll see if we’re a “good fit” to work together.

“I am very pleased with your copyediting job with Healing Thoughts, Therapeutic Shamanism. Your suggestions were very valuable. I especially appreciate the fine attention to detail throughout the text, and the fact that even though you made many changes, you kept the integrity of my writing style intact. Looking forward to working with you again.” – Steven E. Rogat, author of Spirit Journeys (editorial consultant, Aysha Griffin)

Publishing Services and Support

Since 1985, I have owned a Desktop Publishing, Marketing and Communications Agency. This revolution in publishing – made possible by the personal computer – has exploded, with the internet and digital “eReaders” rapidly changing the publishing world.

Should you pursue traditional publishing or self publish? Do you need an agent or a public relations firm, or can you do it all your self?

The answer to these questions and more is: it depends.
It depends on the nature of your work, the scope of your audience, and your personal goals and your own capacities.

In any case, I can help you:
• grasp the various challenges
• make the best decision for your project
• move forward, through all the steps, to successful publication and marketing of your work.

Email me to begin a discussion of your project!
