As a result of working with me, authors will have a book free from logical inconsistencies in the plot, emotional gaffs, and confusing organization. 

The reason I'm so passionate about this is: that nothing tears me out of the enjoyment of a good story faster than an oddly structured sentence or a logical inconsistency. I love the boom in independent publishing that has happened because of the internet and want to see more of these stories reach people and be successful because they are interesting and unique.

About Erycca Manninen

Reader Turned Editor

Freelancer and Business Owner


Growing up my favorite place to be was the library. I knew the librarians, volunteered during the summer, and checked out book after book. Early on I gravitated towards the fantasy genre; I still remember the eye color of my favorite heroine. My appetite for good novels never waned. After the birth of my first child, I began reading almost exclusively on an e-reader because I could feed a baby with one hand and read with the other.

EM Administrative Services was founded in 2018 out of a desire to escape the grind of a traditional career and spend more time at home with my family. With over 13 years of administrative and managerial experience, I thought the obvious path was to serve as a Virtual Assistant. T
hey say to do what you love and I love to read. At the beginning of 2021, I made the decision to focus on line editing and formatting for authors with a focus on romance and fantasy.

I bring a BS degree in Communication Studies and extensive administrative experience to the editing desk. I have often acted as an unofficial editor for coworkers and family as they sent emails or wrote speeches for special occasions. I combine this with a love for the English language and a desire to fully immerse myself in the worlds that live within a book.

I'm an editor, but my real job is allowing authors to take their readers on amazing adventures.

Writing by the Water

I have had the privilege of working with Erycca in multiple settings and all have been outstanding! She was an organized team member on projects with the ability to keep the group focused and successful with her attention to detail. As a supervisor, she was fantastic at building rapport with her coworkers and customers. I wouldn't hesitate to have her lead any project or task I needed and can trust it would be completed above and beyond expectations.
