Editing Services

I love working with authors to create powerful writing. Right now, I am focusing on editing books, short stories, and essays. I work on memoir, literary fiction, young adult novels, middle grade novels, science fiction, fantasy, and assorted non-fictional projects. I offer project-based pricing as well as hourly book coaching. Contact me at tracycgold@gmail.com to find out more about how we could work together.



“Tracy has a keen editorial eye and does an excellent job spotting ways to fully draw out the potential in an author’s writing. I always trusted her opinion on manuscripts she read for me and was consistently impressed with her insightful evaluations and thorough edit letters. She also has a fantastic, positive personality that makes her a joy to work with. I highly recommend her!”
Carrie Pestritto, Literary Agent at Laura Dail Literary Agency
“Tracy Gold is the kind of attentive editor that finds the better writer inside the average writer and the good writer inside the better writer, bringing the author’s talents to the page without leaving fingerprints. My work on the Baltimore Love Project book was greatly enhanced by her editorship.”
Rafael Alvarez, author, Crabtown, USA and Tales from the Holy Land, staff writer for HBO’s “The Wire”
“If it wasn’t for Tracy’s sharp editorial eye and detailed notes, At First Blush would not be the book it is today. She dug into the manuscript and in no time at all managed to fix issues I’d been worried about for months. Tracy instantly understood my characters and their choices, which helped put the story into perspective for me.”

“Tracy’s keen editorial insights helped me dig deeper with my characters and strengthen plot threads. She’s an expert at identifying plot holes, and she offered great suggestions when I was stuck on a chapter. She delivers feedback professionally, efficiently, and encouragingly. I highly recommend her if you want to take your writing to the next level.”
Rachel Lynn Solomon, author, You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone


“Tracy is fast, reliable, and a fantastic editor! She’s also extremely knowledge about the industry and is generous and open to answering your questions.”

Jen Michalski, author, “The Summer She Was Under Water,” “The Tide King,” and more
