Brittany Dowdle - Editor

Huntington Beach, CA, United States

Experienced freelance editor specializing in speculative fiction, crime/mystery, and historical fiction, women's lit/culturally diverse.

Overview

Since 2011, I've been providing both publishers and authors with professional editing services. I bring the same level of expertise and skill to my publishing clients and private authors, while understanding their distinct needs. Clients include St. Martin's Press, Kensington Publishing, Belle Books, and BenBella/Smart Pop Books, among others.

I've worked on close to two hundred traditionally published books in a range of genres, including fiction and nonfiction, but I particularly enjoy working on speculative fiction (science fiction, urban fantasy), historical fiction, crime and mystery (police procedural, historical, cozy), upmarket women's fiction, and romance (multicultural, historical).

I'm proficient with Chicago style and Merriam-Webster (but have an unrequited love for the OED). I'm also a member of the EFA, ACES, and BAEF, and was one of the founding members of the EFA's Diversity Initiative.

Clients have said:

"Working with Brittany is a pleasure. Every book we place for copyediting receives the same excellent and professional edit with an attention to detail that never fails to impress. Highly recommended."-- Debra Dixon, Publisher, BelleBooks/Bell Bridge Books

"Brittany may be the best copyeditor I've ever had. She queries where needed, she knows her grammar and checks for consistency and never goes too far. I would crawl on glass to have her copyedit my books."--Diana Pharaoh Francis, Author

"I'm finally getting thru the details of your edits and they are amazing--you have far exceeded my expectations. I am so impressed by your attention to detail, how thoroughly you look at the big picture and give a global view as well as a line-by-line view . . . I will never work with anyone else."--Shannon Hammer, Author
