Alice Peck has what I call a “magic touch” when it comes to editing and writing. She knows exactly what to add, delete, and rework to make a piece sparkle. Alice is that rare commodity: a truly superb editor who is an absolute pleasure to work with.

Blood Laws (Anaphora Literary Press)
Alice Peck is a beautiful intermediary between the world you’re in and the world your story comes from.
Alice Peck is a word sorceress, a manuscript whisperer. More than expert at the mechanics of editing, Alice listens on another level, finding ways to enhance your vision, and caring passionately about getting in sync with your rhythms and the book’s audience. When ideas rush forth, tripping over each other, Alice finds a way to make expression clearer and more compelling without diminishing creative energy…. The net result is that when you have a new idea or have rewritten an important piece, the question topmost in your mind is, what would Alice think?
From the moment we spoke I knew Alice Peck was the perfect editor for me. She wholeheartedly and enthusiastically took on my project with complete focus and passion. Alice saw and sifted out the jewels, respected the core text while shaving, sculpting and plying her expertise, intuition and special touch to a behemoth of a manuscript. I knew from the start Alice would give it her all….she truly believed in it. No one else could have brought to it her special and unique magic.
Yes! I Will! I Do! (Purple Plume, a division of Inkwell Ltd.)

The Art of Flourishing (Broadway Books/Random House)
Alice Peck is an outstanding editor, but she is more than that. She is also a heartfelt, kind, and thoughtful person. From the moment she takes your story into her hands, you will feel she is not just your editor, but your friend. Alice is a master at her craft; her insights into story, character development, plot, and marketability are first rate. But she also possesses the unique ability to look beyond a normal editor’s scope: to guide writers to focus the intent and purpose of their story. Alice’s particular talent proved enormously helpful to me as I worked on my novel and, as I have come to find, is a rare magic.
The Way (Crown/Random House)
Alice Peck has a rare mixture as an editor. She works from both her head and her heart. Her work is more than a profession—it is a passion. When Alice agrees to take on a project she gives her heart and soul to it.
