Alex Thomas – Editor

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


ABOUT ME: I'm a professional freelance editor with over 10 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!

He did a good job at editing my manuscript and making the work more clear. He did go over the deadline. And that's fine, since my work was a bit more challenging. My only suggestion is to give frequent updates a day or two.

Again, Alex delivered beneficial edits and notes for my manuscript. It was a very comforting feeling having someone who was familiar with my story, as he did developmental edits for me in the past and noted progress or areas that I still struggled with. Will be requesting his services again!
