About Cheryl Hulseapple
If you’re here, you’re likely a creative, high-level thinker or a tech professional who writes.
I’ve worked with writers like you since 2013, beginning with copy editing the blockchain book Anonymous Bitcoin, by Kristov Atlas. Most recently I edited Stefan Molyneux’s book Essential Philosophy.
I’ve worked with many blockchain writers and startups over the years, as well as several self-published authors.
In college, I realized I wanted to be an editor when I fell in love with writing. I got a degree in English and knew I wanted to do something with my education other than teach, so I landed an internship in proofreading and editing with a scholarly book publisher.
Today, I work by day as a copy editor for a publisher of print magazines for professionals in the technical field of photonics.

Increase the Power of Your Writing
Build trust with your readers. Publish higher quality content than your competitors. Enhance your credibility, and feel confident about your written work.
Good editing increases the power of your writing.
You are a powerhouse at getting words onto the page and hitting publish or send. You want to grab the attention of your readers. But you may not be aware of all the little grammar and style tips and tricks that can help.
It happens to all of us: you may be so focused on what you’re saying that you can no longer see how you’re saying it. Eventually, after several drafts, you lose the ability to see the details.
When we create something, we can get stuck in our imagined outcome, becoming blind to the actual outcome.

We all need someone who offers honest feedback and valuable suggestions – grounded in the basics.
Whether you’re a writer, or you’ve hired a writer, you need someone to tell you how the words are coming across.
I go beyond spelling, grammar, and usage. Depending on your needs, the principles of good writing that I may refer to and suggest when I edit your work include:
- Making sure you’re staying focused on what you’re trying to accomplish
- Front loading sections, paragraphs, and sentences
- Reducing adverbs and eliminating hedging words
- Writing shorter paragraphs and sentences
- Being specific, direct, and concise
- Making more full-stop assertions
- Using strong nouns and verbs
- Giving readers a call to action
- Writing in the active voice
- Eliminating ambiguities
- Writing a strong lead
