Megan Chambers

Megan Chambers – Editor

Denver Publishing Institute graduate with five years of editing experience, specializing in nonfiction

Overview

My name is Megan and I'm an editor and ghostwriter based in Idaho. I offer editing for fiction and nonfiction books. I also ghostwrite nonfiction. My greatest passion is working with fantasy, YA, and children's authors. Whether you need a simple proofread or some heavy book doctoring, I'm willing to work with your preferences and your voice to create a manuscript that's ready to reach the world.


On top of my three years of editing experience, I received a graduate certificate from the Denver Publishing Institute and have a B.A. in English writing with a minor in editing and publishing from Whitworth University. I work with Aloha Publishing editing and ghostwriting nonfiction manuscripts, and I edit fiction and nonfiction on my own time.


"Megan’s eye for detail and skill have been a great asset. She is able to give the kind of edit I need, thorough, but without overwriting my voice. She meets deadlines so I am able to as well. Having an editor I trust gives me peace to focus on story." —Hilarey Johnson, author of Sworn to the Desert
