I’m David Downing, a Seattle-based fiction editor operating since 2010 as Maxwellian Editorial Services, Inc.

Since turning to it full-time in 2012, I’ve edited about 30 books a year, most of them mysteries/thrillers, but also literary fiction, women’s fiction, romantic suspense, and historical fiction—even a couple of science fiction titles and a memoir. I work primarily for publishers, but also for individual clients looking for a developmental/substantive editor who can help take their manuscript to the next level.

If you’d like to learn more about how we might work together, I can be reached at david@maxeditorial [dot] com.
