Welcome to the Purple Spekter™ Word Forge

You’ve written words…lots of words…and your manuscript is nearly perfect. Now, it’s time to hammer out the tricky typos, grammatical gremlins, and pesky punctuation problems. That’s what I’m here for—to take your written words and polish them into glorious perfection.

I Will Make Your Words Shine!

I’ve been editing and formatting documents for professional presentation and publication since I was sixteen. I have a keen eye for typographical and grammatical errors that most authors and writers can’t see in their own manuscripts. As a self-published author of young adult, science fiction, and supernatural books, I’m an expert at preparing books for popular digital publication services such as Amazon KDP or Draft2Digital Publication.
