Overview

Hi! I'm Alex, and I have over a decade of copy editing and proofreading experience in the publishing industry, including four years in-house at Harlequin. I've contributed my expertise to books by Paula Treick DeBoard, Kristan Higgins, and Deanna Raybourn (among many others), as well as parenting magazines and fashion & lifestyle blogs. I've even edited collector car auction catalogues for RM Sotheby's. I am practiced at identifying errors in grammar and usage, as well as possible conflicts with political correctness, while maintaining the author's voice. I'm interested in and open to all forms of fiction prose (and I don't shy away from erotica).

If you're reaching out to me, it's because your manuscript has completed its journey through most of the editorial process and you're done making changes down to the paragraph level. You're almost ready to take it to the publisher, but you want to make sure everything is spelled correctly and you haven't said "forego" where you meant "forgo." I'm your mechanic and detailer. I'll make sure your sentences function and fix them where they don't, and I'll buff out any dings or scrapes. The first things I'll ask you are which dictionary you wish to adhere to and whether you'd like your manuscript copy edited in accordance with Chicago Style. In all cases, I'll draw up a style sheet to keep track of things like character bios and relationships, as well as exceptional spellings and treatment of words. I'll also ensure your protagonist doesn't have a Groundhog Day experience of enjoying two Saturdays back-to-back (unless time travel is a theme in your story!).

I look forward to working with you and giving your story its final polish.
