A thoughtful and attentive approach to content, stylistic, substantive, and developmental editing
Ginny Rogers works with you to take your manuscript to the next level while keeping your faith at the forefront of your text. Faith is a fundamental part both of who you are and the books you write. Having an editor who shares those values means your message won’t get lost in the mechanics of storytelling.
The changes you’ve made make me look like a better writer than I am.
~ M. Lynette Hartsell
Ginny’s edits help you develop and highlight your spiritual themes while maintaining your voice and style. Her outside perspective allows her to emphasize critical components and identify weaker elements in the context of your story.
Ginny embraced and enhanced my voice, allowing me to appreciate a richer version of my own writing.
~ H. Peter Alesso
Polish provides luster, adds richness, and enhances beauty. It works on fingernails, shoes, furniture, cars, and your words. You can focus on ideas and follow your inspiration, and let Ginny provide the polish.
She was very professional, catching every detail, asking the right questions, giving valuable suggestions and polishing the work within the framework of my vision for the book.
~ Helen Huang
Ginny has been editing in a variety of genres and contexts for more than 35 years. Finding the right words is her passion. Her goal is always to help you make your writing the best it can be by offering professional suggestions on style, tone, organization, and flow in addition to word choice. Grammar, spelling, and punctuation are second nature to her.

Christian Book Editor and Bookcrafter
I'm a veteran editor and writer, with four decades of full-time work in book publishing, focusing especially on Christian books of all kinds. I’ve also edited numerous business and leadership books, memoirs, and fiction titles.
I’ve partnerered with dozens of respected communicators in bringing out many notable works. These authors have included Louie Giglio, Carolyn Castleberry, Henry Blackaby, J. I. Packer, C. J. Mahaney, Ruth Myers, Randy Alcorn, Thelma Wells, Richard Blackaby, Tony Evans, John MacArthur, Larry Crabb, Larry Osborne, Andy Stanley, and Dave Harvey, to name just a few.
Many of my editing projects have involved extensive collaborative writing—especially developing content from various author sources such as sermon transcripts, message outlines, letters, and journal entries. I’ve worked to maintain the author’s voice and style, and I’m grateful to have often been commended by authors for doing exactly that.
As an author, I’m currently writing the third novel in a trilogy of historical fiction (currently being agented for consideration by publishers). I’ve also written extensively for children (using a pen name), with more than twenty books published. Three of my books were winners of the Christian Book Award (the “Gold Medallion”) from the ECPA trade publishers association.
