Alex Thomas – Editor

I am an editor, proofreader, and writer experienced with genre fiction, who wants to help authors bring their visions to life.


PLEASE NOTE: For those interested in working with me, I encourage you to snag your spot in advance.

ABOUT ME: I'm a professional freelance editor with over 7 years of experience and a lifelong fan of fantasy and science fiction. I am also a traditionally published author myself. I have worked with manuscripts at every step of the process and know the effort and energy it takes to bring your story to life. Because of my experience, I understand both the traditional and indie marketplace and will help you polish your story until it shines. My job is to find your areas of improvement both in terms of narrative and craft and to help you come up with solutions that are organic to your story. I do this job because I love it, I have a great enthusiasm for stories, and I know what it's like to need the assistance.

MY PREFERENCES AND EXPERIENCE: I have years of experience working with the whole gamut of fantasy and science fiction. I have worked on stories from Epic Fantasy to Urban Fantasy, from Space Opera to Military Sci-Fi, from Post-Apocalyptic to Super Hero, and more. I prefer to work with adult genre fiction, but am well-versed in young adult as well. I also have a wide-range of experience with tabletop role-playing game sourcebooks and am willing to provide editorial work for those projects as well.

I choose to work on projects that I feel have great potential and that I feel passionate about. I cannot wait to hear about your story and begin working with the amazing authors here at Reedsy!

Will hire Alex again for future projects! What an early Christmas gift! His professional notes, and his comments responding like a reader with a critical eye were honest and constructive, also uplifting.

I liked working with Alex, I thought the communication between us was good. He did what I exspected of him, even changing something at the last minute, (which he could have refused to do) Yes I will definately work with him again.

There was a hiccup with payment processing on Reedsy's end but Alex was extremely communicative through the whole process.

Alex's feed back was spot on. Some of the issues I thought I my novel had, he pointed out and made reccomendations on how to fix. Can't thank Alex enough.
