I am an editor and writer specializing in nonfiction. I have provided developmental editing and/or copyediting for many book-length works (including more than a dozen books for University of California Press), and I am the chief copyeditor for several peer-reviewed journals. I have edited work in (for example) sociology, evolutionary biology, urban planning, water resources management, civil engineering, and quantum mechanics. I have written on sociology of religion, philosophy of science, and many technical subjects. (My technical background includes web development, information architecture, and CMS design.) Write to me at roy-dot-sablosky at sablosky-dot-com, or call (301) 919-0229.
I really appreciate your editing, comments, and suggestions. I’m really impressed with your work. Wow.

One of the best paleontology books I have read … so delightful and well written, that I could hardly put it down. —Richard D. Norris
Highly readable and entertaining. —Benjamin A. Tagle
