Emily Hatesohl – Editor

Copy editor with seven years of experience editing religious books, memoirs, academic texts, and children's books for two major publishers


I have seven years of editing experience, a master's degree in English composition, and a passion for making your writing the best it can be. I have edited everything from children's books to scholarly journals, business books to human interest books, quarterly magazines to blog posts. I have edited for Concordia Publishing House for seven years and have freelanced for Rowman & Littlefield for two years.

I love collaborating with authors on their projects. I'll make sure to keep your voice while polishing any rough patches. I tend to ask plenty of questions and let you know what I'm doing along the way. I am an obsessive fact-checker, grammar nerd, and self-proclaimed punctuation queen. My education level and work experience have prepared me to take a job and run with it, giving you back a polished product. I'm easy to work with and happy to help!

Emily was fantastic to work with, and brought a high level of polish and creativity to our book she edited. Many of her changes seemed minor but actually had a huge impact on the story, and she was absolutely instrumental in fine-tuning the tone, presentation, and overall narrative. Absolutely an A+ in our experience with her! She also had some great suggestions and improvements to the content...

Emily was a joy to work with! She was polite, considerate of what I wanted to convey, and delivered my devotional AHEAD of schedule!

What a life! I get to edit books--especially true crime, self-help, and dark fiction--and gently help authors share their passions.
