Jaime P. – Editor

Editor-in-Chief with 7+ years of content, copy editing, and proofreading experience. It will still be your book, your voice, only louder!

Overview

Hello you beautiful monsters!


You did it! You made it to my profile! When I told my husband he started calling all our relatives! Some baked elaborate desserts in your honor. Others felt moved to write poetry. That really jacked guy at the gym started doing vigorous push-ups. Everyone rejoiced! So the hard part is over!


l’m Jaime, a professional editor, who has worked as a content and copy editor, as well as a proofing editor in all fiction genres. I am Editor-in-Chief for Crystal Lake Publishing, a publishing house specializing in dark fiction, and I’m also a senior editor at Eerie River Publishing, and an editor for the company My Book Inside, but I still make plenty of time for exciting Reedsy projects.


I love giving my authors as many tools as I can to help them succeed in the publishing world. That's why you will see that not only do I execute a thorough editing of your manuscript, but I also give lots of tips of the trade in the margins! During the process I will be one of your biggest cheerleaders! So feel free to message me day or night; I always keep Reedsy open on my computer 24-7. Can't wait to work with you!

Jaime absolutely exceeded expectations. I was nervous at first, but early on she won me over with her professionalism and knowledge. Also her love for the horror genre made me feel far more at home. She was polite, hardworking and honest with her edits. I'm sure I'll be working with her again if she'll have me.

To all authors - My novel is over 80,000 words. So naturally when it was time for editing, I did a lot of research before I reached out to Jaime Powell. I promise this review it a true and accurate account of my experience working with her. Jamie is true to her bio, she did not hold anything back and got straight to work. I was extremely impressed how fast she completed the manuscript. ...
