Hello, everyone! This is my landing page for all things writing and publishing. My name is Chuck Sambuchino and I am a humor writer, freelance editor, and former book editor. I was an editor for Writer’s Digest Books for several years up through 2017 and have written many books.

Thanks for visiting my writing website. This picture is of me instructing at a book festival in Indianapolis.

Me during a critique session at the Midwest Writers Workshop. I freelance critique query letters, synopses, book proposals and novels. Check out my Editing Services page for all information.


These are my 8 books.

Smiling with writers after teaching in Virginia.

Me on a panel at the International Women’s Fiction Festival — Matera, Italy. I got to wear those cool headphones and hear translations when questions were not asked in English. Quite a thrill!

Instructing at Muse at the Marketplace in Boston. One of the only times I’ve tried to pull off a vest.

Signing books at Cincinnati’s book festival, Books by the Banks.
