ERWA Recommended Editorial Services
Leonard & Virginia Editorial offers administrative and editorial services—from manuscript critique, editorial guidance, copyediting, line- and content-editing, research, to layout and design, typesetting and prepress formatting, and much more—all at reasonable author-friendly/small-business rates, served up with a refreshingly professional attitude and a smile.
While our primary editorial focus is on fiction and creative nonfiction, such as memoir, we’re ready, willing, and able to assist you with almost any project. Print or electronic media, short stories or full-length manuscripts, smut, romance, or academic studies, work for pleasure or for hire, even for submission and possible publication, or for publication yourself. We’re here to do the dirty work to make your writing sparkle and be the best it can be. We have very few taboos. Our background and experience include working with sexual and erotic content, so let it rip. There’s little we may reject simply because of its nature.

I'm still a bit surprised to find myself administrator of a community that dwells in the sensual and the erotic. Who would have thought all those dirty books residing under my bed would lead to this? I have to say it is wonderfully liberating to realize the only dirty things under my bed are the dust bunnies; that my passion for things erotic is simply a healthy interest in sexuality. There's nothing quite like a community of like-minded people to light the way.
I graduated from University with a degree in anthropology and live with my professor husband. However, the New Yorker in me is still alive and kicking. We have three kids: a professor, a financier, and instructional designer. Things are more comfortable now that they don't have to answer the classic elementary school question, "What does your mommy do?"
In 1996, with the help and encouragement of several women, I founded the Erotica Readers & Writers Association. It's a continuing pleasure to mingle with the passionate souls of ERWA.
