DENNIS DE ROSE @ MONEYSAVER EDITING Let me help you with your next book. References upon request. You won`t be disappointed.

Background Information


I would like to welcome all readers and writers to my Moneysaver Editing presence in First, I would like to thank Authors Den for allowing me to have this space to express myself, my thoughts, to introduce you to the writers that I've edited for, show you the reviews I've written and, last but not least, to explain my editing business plan to all interested writers. Above all, may God bless everyone who takes the time to visit my space.

Moneysaver Editing was born approximately 5 years ago when I realized that I would be retiring from my current job (corrections counselor) within a few years. I realized that I had been reading all my life, one word at a time. I knew that I had the ability to understand what I read and to express myself well via the written word. I am an extremely detail-oriented, driven and honest(I think) person. That being said...

My editing business plan...
First and foremost, I won't let you down. My work with you will be done only when you feel satisfied with what we have accomplished. I said we, not me. You and I, hopefully, will become a writing TEAM, working together to help each other.

I promise you that I will not change or alter anything you have painstakingly written, without asking you first. You wrote it, not me.

I do not charge by the word, I charge by the hour. I use voice recognition software to speed up the process and save you money. This way, if you're a good writer, you will benefit by saving money.

I am an all-around editor, from the proofread stage to your final edit . we will come up with a payment plan together. I will edit your manuscript once. You will pay me in full and then I will do a final edit, for a much lower fee. This plan is not set in stone; it may vary from manuscript to manuscript based on certain factors.

Here is what a few of my authors have to say about me....


Dennis is a fantastic book editor! He takes your words and ideas and enhances them to make your words come alive! He will take the ordinary and make it extraordinary...JULIUS THOMPSON,"GHOST OF ATLANTA" and 3 others.

"GHOST OF ATLANTA" just won the 2011 Readers Favorite National Gold Medal Award for general fiction.


 "Dennis had worked with me on three novels and I was thrilled with the quality of his work, his thoroughness, and his ability to meet my deadlines. My books are significantly better due to his editing."...GREG RANDALL, writer of the SHARON O`MARA mystery series and others.


  As I continue about me...

I will be happy to provide you with references as requested. I need not see what other writers have said about me. You be the judge. I will be happy to edit the first few pages of your manuscript for free so that you can see what I do for you. I promise to review your book after publication and put that review in as many websites as I can, also free. I will work with you every step of the way. Please feel free to call me at any time, for anything. I look forward to working with you, as a professional and a friend in the future. Thank you and God bless...


"Many are called but few are chosen. I said that to say that there are many editors out there. If you chose Dennis for your editing needs, you have nothing to lose. You have a lot to gain. He knows his onions.You will surely discover for yourself that a good turn deserves another. I recommend him.
Thank you.".....Paul Emekwulu, The dreaming Mathematician
"As a writer, it is very important to have an excellent editor. An editor that is not only a master of the English language and it's syntax, but also one that cares about and understands your story. Dennis gets involved, making your book the best it can be. He's not there to re-write your thoughts, but simply there to make your thoughts clearer to your potential audience. A great editor indeed." ....Kane, writer of Aleron,a Vampire adventure in the making.
"Dennis has edited work for me, I found him to be outstanding, and an improved in the story read by his suggestions. I have worked with three editors and Dennis is one of the best that I have had the pleasure to work with, and look forward to several more projects with him. I recommend highly for any literary work you need to be edited, copy-edited, polished or ready to send to a publisher for submittal. "

Dave Karwoski,a Nam vet with many great stories to tell.
  "M.E. Brady, a local writer of "APromise of Forever" a romance complete with all the trimmings...

"If you are looking for an editor, I highly recommend Dennis DeRose. Dennis is great at what he does and is a master of the English language. With Dennis, he keeps after you until your book is the very best it can be. Thank You Dennis for your knowledge and patience. I enjoyed working with you and look forward to working with you again in the near future."


I`m so excited for MaryEllen. She just told me that she sold 40 books in Kindle in just 2 days!

More recent feedback from MaryEllen...

______________________________________So many women who have read 50 shades of grey can't believe how poorly it was written, compared to how well my book was written. (Thank you for that!) ___________

This is a quote that Julius Thompson just sent me from his publisher... 
Very, Very Big Props to you! The editors at Passionate Writer Publishing said Purple Phantoms was so well edited that they just sent the manuscript to proofreading and to the art department to be read for the cover design. They didn't have to make any changes and their editors said they "Enjoyed the story". What a compliment!!!

 Karen Rossman is writing an anthology and I edited the first story for her. This is what she has to say about me and my work...

Thank you for your input on the story. After the series is finished there will be a follow up to Chantel's story (Footsteps to Dreams) and that character.

What I particularly like about your work is that you specifically detail why something needs to be corrected and you also give examples. This helps me to learn on the other books, things that I can correct before sending it to you. It helps me tremendously.

There isn't anything that I'm unsatisfied with. That's the great part!

You're definitely the editor I'd like to continue working with.

Much appreciation...Karen

From Jim Westcott, writer of Jack's Tales, "Dennis genuinely seeks to build partnerships with the authors he works with. For this reason, he is a rare find. He is as good as any high-quality editor; however, how often do writers find true allies in this business? Dennis willingly takes on the role as an ally as well as a great editor. Hire him and find out for yourself."
Service Category: Writer/Editor
Year first hired: 2013
Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert

 "I hired Dennis to do a light grammatical edit my current WIP. Not only did he provide the requested grammatical edit, he also picked up several areas normally handled by developmental editors at no additional cost.
His prices are reasonable and fair for the amount of time and meticulous work he puts into performing his duties.
If you are looking for a grammatical editor who is a step-above the competition, look no further. I am more than pleased with his expertise."

DUTCH RHUDY, a very prolific, detailed writer 

------------------------------------------------------- A.G. Moye concerning our W.I.P... Thanks for the call, Sammi really was shocked when you called her by her name. She didn't know I told you! Haha! It is always good to talk to you, I learn each time and seeing how you perform as an editor, I wonder how my other editor will do? That's okay, I live and learn. Look forward to talking to you again. I also pulled up that page you sent me with the margin notes. I like the way you do it, now that I can actually see for myself... George --------------------------------------------------- Jerry Lowenstein's recent accolades i.e. my edit of And Now a World... I like the way you've called attention to inconsistencies, cleaned up the punctuation, and made suggestions about wording. I didn't always agree with suggested changes (minor point) such as the quote from Bernard Shaw, which you put in the past tense, which was more appropriate for the situation, but not the way Shaw wrote it. I still haven't done a thorough reading and may add more later. I like your suggestion about Createspace and will invest in the book. I don't want to go back to iUniverse. Though they did a good job generally, their emphasis was always on how much they could squeeze out of you for their services. Above all, I like your responsiveness and that we engage in a dialogue. -----------------------------------------------------

Moneysaver Editing on Facebook
Jam packed with recommendations and plaudits.You`ll see a few pictures there and a video or two along with an audio clip radio interview.Perhaps a related poem or two.It`s eclectic and a bit jumbled but you`ll get the picture. I would organise it better if Facebook was more user-friendly.
