If you’re an expert or service-based professional... If you work at a literary agency or book publisher... If you’re seeking a contributing writer or presenter...
looking to establish your expertise at a greater level of visibility, attract more ideal clients, and significantly expand your reach, then you want a friendly, accomplished pro in your corner to support you in writing a book or to write one for you.
and you have an author with a great platform but no manuscript, a manuscript in desperate need of an overhaul, or an almost-there draft but no more time or attention to give, then you need a skilled, reliable writer-editor with experience on both sides of the desk.
and you want practical, meaty advice for your audience that’s tight, clean, and ready to deliver, then you need someone who can entertain while she instructs, and who has solid industry creds backing her up.

I had never written a proposal before and knew nothing about the process. Ally's deep knowledge of the publishing industry was indispensable; she walked me through the entire process from beginning to end. The book that resulted was my first published work. Again, Ally was right there with me the whole time, shaping and developing each section and always keeping the big picture in mind. I've worked with other editors in a variety of situations, and the fact is I'd choose to work with Ally every single time.

I needed a freelance editor to edit five books in five weeks for a new branded series, an exceptionally challenging task. Ally Peltier, who was recommended to me by a trusted colleague, took on the project, and we are thrilled with the results. Ally not only improved each books' readability, she created a format for the entire book series that is based on a solid understanding of the series' market. Her ability to understand and translate our vision to the page was incredible: she organized each book to best present its information to the reader and also line edited the content to convey the desired tone. She identified areas for improvement and explained her modifications to the authors clearly, but gently. She submitted her edits with detailed letters addressing overall concerns and suggested excellent solutions. I've already contracted with her to do another five titles, and I look forward to a continued relationship.

There is one reason why this book came out as wonderfully as it did, and that reason is Ally (Peltier) Machate. She is a complete professional and truly gifted at what she does. From the nitty-gritty of editing my introduction to sitting down to explain to me just how the publishing process actually works, Ally was superb.
