I’m Jay Antani, author and editor. If you’re an author looking for an editor, this is the place. If you’re looking for information about my books, this is the place.

Whether you’re an indie author looking to self-publish or planning to go the traditional publisher route, I’m glad you’re here. I’m an experienced editor, here to help get your novel, memoir, or short-story collection in fighting shape ahead of your publishing goals.



“Jay is an asset to any author and has been a huge help to my clients.”
– Kim O’Hara, Intuitive Book Coach, A Story Inside

My editing services include everything from manuscript critiques to copyediting to proofreading.  Which service or services you choose depends on where you are in your own writing journey.

I offer a free five-page sample edit that’ll give us both an idea of what level of editing your manuscript would best benefit from.

I specialize in editing memoirs, literary fiction, horror, science fiction, thrillers, contemporary fiction, and YA.

I understand that finding the right editor is delicate business, based on your budget, your timeline, and, most importantly, the level of comfort you feel with your editor. My goal is to serve the best interest of your manuscript and to help bring it to its fullest potential, all while retaining your own voice, style, and tone.

Please take a look at my Editorial Services page for more details.
