Developmental editor, copyeditor, and proofreader with 10+ years’ experience in nonfiction: Business, ICT, Philosophy, and Self-Development.

Overview

Reviews (7)

As an English Literature and Philosophy graduate from the University of Birmingham (UK), books are my passion. Books are unique in their ability to change the world, even long after their author has gone. As a result, I became a freelance book editor and proofreader, utilising my skills and knowledge to help authors deliver books that are worth reading.

With over 10 years of experience, I’ve worked as a freelancer and in-house for the UK's leading global ICT publisher (Packt Publishing), proofreading over 400 books on a range of ICT & Tech subjects—often written by non-native speakers. I also copyedited over 20 manager’s guides on business topics for Impackt Publishing. As a freelancer, I have content edited and proofread over 40 books in the genres of Self-improvement/Self-help, Business Development, Tech, Entrepreneurship, Philosophy, and more. I’ve worked with first-time self-publishing authors to New York Times bestsellers. You can see a selection of the books I’ve edited below.

Why me?

With so many editors out there, the question is always, why choose me? Aside from my substantial knowledge of the English language and my experience in the publishing industry, I’m a conscientious individual who believes that we should all strive to make the world a better place for others, whether that is through writing a book or in other ways. I travelled the world for a year, exploring different cultures and working from far and wide, and my experience and philosophical training translates to deep, critical thinking. So if you choose me as your editor, what you’ll get is a constructive, honest, and challenging critique of your book.

What's next?

If you've written a book and want to get published, please get in touch. Whether you're a non-native speaker, a first-time author, are self-publishing, or are seeking a traditional publisher, I’d love to work with you. I will provide honest feedback on the quality of your book and comprehensive guidance and suggestions on how to improve it, ensuring it is clear, well-structured, compelling, and informative. Together, we'll ensure your book is the best it can possibly be.

I look forward to working with you.

Work experience

Editorial Quality Executive

Packt Publishing
August, 2013 – February, 2015 (over 1 year)

I worked in-house for the UK's leading ICT publisher Packt Publishing, where I proofread over 400 books on a wide range of ICT and Tech subjects, from software to hardware, web development to data science, and various niche subjects. Many of these books were written by non-native English writers, and I copyedited approximately 30 of these books to improve the quality of writing. In addition, I copyedited and proofread over 20 books for Packt's sister company, Impackt Publishing, on niche Business topics, including Manager's Guides on various work-related subjects.

I ensured the adherence of all books to the house style guide, and was also responsible for updating and maintaining the house style guide and all editorial guidelines. I continue to work for Packt Publishing as a freelancer, where I am responsible for book title information (blurbs).

Proofreader and Book Editor

Self-employed
January, 2010 – Present (almost 8 years)

As a self-employed freelance proofreader and book editor, I offer start-to-finish structural/content editing, copyediting, and proofreading services for authors. I primarily work on nonfiction titles, and have edited over 30 books, mostly in the genres of Business, ICT, and Self-Improvement. I've also edited books on Philosophy, Property Development, Health and Fitness, and Children’s Development, as well as four fiction novels in the genres of Sci-Fi and Drama. I have edited two books on Medicine for large education publisher BPP Media, working in accordance with their house style guide.

As an editor, I have a thorough knowledge of spelling, grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, word meanings, capitalisation, and styles. I also have substantial industry experience, so I know what readers want and how to deliver it. I have helped many authors to ensure their book is ready for publishing. I've worked with a wide range of authors, from first-time authors to New York Times bestsellers, self-publishing authors to those seeking traditional publishers. I can provide guidance on whether it's best to self-publish or look for a publisher, and can also help with your contents page, glossary, author bio, and blurb if required.

Ameesha is wonderful. She painlessly guided me through my first book editing process and helped me elevate my book to another level. Not only do I highly recommend her, I will be working with her on the upcoming books in my series. She is fast and thorough and her notes are clear.

Frederick Williams

Ameesha was an incredible find. Her turnaround time was bested only by the quality of her work. She was insightful and provided a lot of great guidance on changes that needed to be made to the manuscript. Outstanding work. I've already started a second project with her -- no need to go out to bid. I've found the best editor.

Stacy Moroz

This collaboration with Ameesha was my first time working with a professional editor. I have to admit I was worried at first. Handing your first manuscript over to a complete stranger is daunting. Ameesha quickly calmed those fears. I loved working with Ameesha. Working with her felt like a real partnership. She took a vested interest in my book and provided edits, feedback, and novel insights...

Lane Bailey

Ameesha is great! A true collaborator with an eye for detail, Ameesha knew my vision and helped set me on a path to realizing it. I really appreciate how she turned herself into a subject matter expert on my own subject! I will definitely trust my future endeavors to Ameesha's guiding hand.

Ed Amin

Ameesha is a true professional. She was always available and stayed in touch through the whole process. For someone like myself writing their first manuscript, she was very encouraging, provided a lot of valuable advice, and always willing to go the extra mile for you to ensure you have the makings of a great book.
