Grace Kerina - Editor

Nashville, TN, United States

I'm currently a managing editor at The Author Incubator, taking authors through a 13-week process from book conception to publication.

Overview

Hi, Ricardo. I'm a managing editor at The Author Incubator (TAI). Angela Lauria told me about our connection with Reedsy, which sounds great. I'm glad to go ahead and get my profile set up and be vetted. I'll be an "employee" of TAI, and I've set up the "out of office" option, for now. Please let me know if you need anything else to get me set up. Thank you.

Work experience

Managing Editor

The Author Incubator

May, 2015 – Present (over 1 year)

I guide authors through the 13-week process for publishing a book with Difference Press through The Author Incubator program, beginning with clarifying a book idea and ending with a published ebook. My responsibilities include facilitating timelines and helping authors meet deadlines regarding conceptualizing, writing, and publishing their non-fiction books. My skills around the more technical aspects of ebook publishing include using Bowker to assign ISBNs and using Kindle Direct Publishing to load books into Amazon. The Author Incubator staff and subcontractors work with each other virtually. I also manage and facilitate connections with the book cover designers, proofreaders, and other specialists on behalf of the authors in my care.

Writing Coach & Editor

Grace Kerina

September, 2010 – May, 2015 (over 4 years)

I coached people to write more like themselves, to write for publication, and to reach their writing goals. Teaching methods included online e-courses (which are still available on) and one-on-one advising. Services included substantive editing through copyediting, writing process clarification and support, and ghostwriting.
