Consulting Editors Alliance

WELCOME to the online offices of Consulting Editors Alliance, a group of highly skilled independent book editors, each with a minimum of 15 years' New York publishing experience

We can help you get your book ready to publish and advise you on every aspect of publishing from the editorial process to e-books. 

We've edited hundreds of acclaimed titles in virtually every category of fiction and non-fiction, including many national bestsellers.

THE SERVICES WE OFFER include development of book proposals, in-depth evaluation of manuscripts; project development; line editing and rewriting; "book doctoring"; and collaboration and ghost writing.

WE WORK WITH writers--published, unpublished, and self-published--as well as literary agents, packagers, and editors at major publishers and at small presses across the country.

WE HAVE EXPERTISE in every category of fiction and nonfiction--click here for a detailed list of publishing areas you may be interested in and the names of CEA editors who specialize in them.
