• It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment?
    Vita Sackville-West

The road to a final, polished manuscript can be long and arduous. We have the experience to help you on your journey. Unlike many editorial services, we approach manuscripts with both an editor’s and a writer’s eye. We ask hard questions: will this work as a book? Will publishers and other readers read past the first page? Is there enough narrative impetus to propel them beyond that first page?

With over twenty-five years combined experience in the publishing industry, the editors at Randolph Lundine approach each project with a critical and professional sensibility. We have worked on a variety of book projects, including trade and scholarly manuscripts. Heather Lundine worked as an acquisitions editor and editor-in-chief at one of the country’s largest university presses. Her acquisition work focused on trade nonfiction, history, academic monographs, and food writing. Ladette Randolph is an award-winning writer, and a former acquisitions editor and director of one of the country’s largest university presses. She currently edits one of the nation’s premier literary journals. Her acquisition work focused on fiction, memoir, creative nonfiction, and scholarly humanities works.
