Coastal Editing is a virtual company, meaning it exists online. The co-owners actually live on two different coasts. Darya lives on the West Coast and Cindi lives on the East Coast. Darya has better weather, but Cindi gets to play in the snow. Visit our About Us page to learn more.
Here is what a few of our happy clients have had to say about us and our services. We hope to hear from you soon!
Cindi Pietrzyk is a fantastic editor! Not only is she an expert on basic spelling, grammar, and punctuation, but she's a professional with a great eye for inconsistencies, clarity of text, character development, etc. She gently makes comments and suggestions for improvement while always respecting an author's work.
Last year, Cindi did such a great job editing one of my novels that I employed her to work on a second one. I was totally pleased with both jobs.
Without hesitation, I give Cindi my highest recommendation.
To my editor and dear friend, Darya Crockett, you have earned the honor of being the single-most dedicated professional associated with this work. Your tireless efforts have contributed immeasurably to the overall quality and content of this book. Of all the lessons learned, finding the right editor is perhaps the most valuable and the only thing more valuable is being friends with you. Thank you.
