New Editing Service for Indie Catholic Authors

Recent visitors to this blog may have noticed one small, unobtrusive addition to the navigation bar above: “Need an Editor?” Clicking the link will take you directly to MiteyEditing.com, a new editing service especially for new and indie Catholic writers.

MItey Editing, affordable editing for indie Catholic authors

A uniquely affordable editing service

What makes this editing service unique? First, it is available only to Catholic authors who write works (fiction or non-fiction) that are in some way motivated and illuminated by the Catholic faith. Second, writers may negotiate to arrive at a fee that they can afford. The editor will do everything she can to make quality editing available to those who really want it. If you would like to know more, fill out the query form on the Mitey Editing website.


Who is your “Mitey Editor”?

Well, that’s me, Lisa Nicholas, the editor of this blog. The idea to offer editing (and book coaching, and a variety of related services that indie authors often need) grew directly out of my long-time membership in the Dallas/Fort Worth Catholic Writers Group, and in the Catholic Writers Guild. In fact, as I state in this blog post on the Mitey Editing blog, “Polish Before You Publish,” my decision to launch this service is inspired by the same purpose embraced by the Catholic Writers Guild, to support “the rebirth in Catholic arts and letters” by offering independent Catholic writers quality, professional editing services at exceptionally low rates.

Join the DFW Catholic Writers Group this Tuesday

If you’re not yet ready for an editor but could use some encouragement and peer-critique from other Catholic writers, and if you live in the Dallas area, why not join us at one of our “first Tuesday” meetings? There are two times and places to choose from, midday in Plano and in the evening at the University of Dallas in Irving, this Tuesday, October 4. There are no formal requirements for membership – just show up! And don’t forget to bring several copies of anything that you want to share or have critiqued. (Here are the details of time and place.)

If you don’t live in the DFW Metroplex, you might like to join the Catholic Writers Guild, which has a lively Facebook group, an annual writers' conference, and local chapters around the country.
