Ask The Editor

Rave reviews from Anita’s editing clients

I work primarily — but not exclusively — with authors who have been previously published. The projects I take on tend to show a spark of potential but may not yet be ready to compete in the marketplace.

PLEASE NOTE: As of March 19, 2010, I have joined the Salkind Agency/Studio B, as a literary agent. In order to avoid conflicts of interest, I will no longer accept new editing clients, nor do further editing work for previous/current clients, except those who are represented by third party (unrelated to Studio B) literary agents.

Read what a few authors of previous books on which I’ve consulted have to say about my work:

“In my years of working with editors, what distinguishes Anita is her terrific sense of theatre and her firm command of dramatic flow. This skill, coupled with her keen eye, sharp ear, and the grace of her communication, made working with her remarkably productive. With efficiency and economy, she reshaped, focused, and suggested now and again that I reach deep inside for some answers and promised that I would succeed. Her steady voice and clear direction kept me fueled  page after page. If the idea is to get it right, Anita is your answer.”

DENISE SHEKERJIAN, twice-Pushcart nominated author of fiction and non-fiction; Author of UNCOMMON GENIUS (Viking, Penguin), and a novel-in-progress.


“I can’t imagine writing a book without Anita’s input! She provided invaluable comments on my last five books. Not only have her suggestions helped me present complex medical information more clearly, she’s also taught me how to make motivational chapters more inspiring and upbeat.”

SARAH WERNICK, Author of STRONG WOMEN STAY SLIM (Bantam) and other books.

“I worked with Ms. Bartholomew this past winter following the recommendation of my literary agent, Judith Riven. I am the author of four books with the Rosen Publishing Group and Three Rivers Press.  This is my first novel, and Anita’s many insightful comments and suggestions have been invaluable.  I can’t recommend her highly enough.”

VICTORIA SHAW, Author of BODY TALK (Rosen) and other books.

“Anita helped me through an extensive restructuring in a concise, methodical fashion. Her comments and suggestions were always on target and her manner professional at every turn.  The manuscript was immeasurably stronger in the end.”

SUSAN POHLMAN, Author of HALFWAY TO EACH OTHER: How a Year in Italy Brought our Family Home (Guideposts, Fall 2009)
