Editing & Acquisitions


Looking for a high-quality, detail-oriented proofreader, copy editor, or developmental editor? Proof Positive is my full-time editing business, and with over five years and more than 100 manuscripts under my company’s belt, we have the experience you need to get your manuscript ready to self-publish or submit to agents and publishing houses or magazines.

Take a look at my editing website to see the services my company offers.


I work with City Owl Press to acquire manuscripts and work directly with authors who write:

  • Urban Fantasy
  • Romantic suspense
  • Historical romance
  • Contemporary romance

If you’ve got a finished novella (20K-50K words) or a finished novel (50K+ words) that falls under any of these genres and has a unique voice, unique storyline, and makes every word count, send your submission to cstratos@cityowlpress.com. Submissions can be agented or without an agent and should include:

  1. a query
  2. the first ten pages of your manuscript, pasted into your email

See the City Owl Press submissions page and FAQ here if you have further questions.

Pitch to me at Liberty States Fiction Writers Conference March 30, 2019!
