Overview

Hello, you beautiful monsters!


It's me! Jaime Powell, editor extraordinaire! Let's jump right in! I am a professional editor, who has worked as a content editor, copy or line editor, and proofing editor. I am also an author who has 5 books with two different independent publishing houses and in 3 different genres.

I have edited almost all genres of fiction such as horror, fantasy, historical fiction, sci-fi, paranormal, romance, young adult, new adult, middle grade, and all sub genres which is my specialty! Even right now I am getting grabby hands just waiting to help out with all those beautifully written manuscripts.

I am a fulltime editor which means this is how I make my living and every manuscript will be as polished as I can make it. That way when you send it to the publishing houses of your choice, you will have a leg up on the competition!

Will you hate me at times? Of course. I am responsible for showing you what could be made better for you which as an author myself, I sympathize. It's tough feeling like a stranger is messing with your baby. But that being said, you will find that I am your biggest cheerleader! By the time I am done, you'll have a manicured manuscript and a new best friend! (Yeah, I'm that good.) :)

I work now for Clean Reads Publishing as the lead editor and submissions manager. And I also work with Champagne Book Group as a copy editor. But I also have time for freelance work which is where you beautiful monsters come in! I always make time for new and exciting projects!

I have edited more than forty-five manuscripts, 20 of which I have included here on my profile, and all of which hold 4-5 star reviews on Amazon. I am always available, as I keep Reedsy open on my computer all day, so feel free to hit me up! Can't wait to work with you!

Jamie was amazing and turned my mediocre book into a work of art. I loved her work and more than that she explained everything; why she changed what, what her suggestions were and the rules for editing. 10/10 recommend

So kind of you, KC! I hope to work with you again on your next masterpiece! -Jaime

As a new author, I was nervous to give my work to someone else to edit and pick apart, but working with Jaime was such an unexpected treat. Jaime made sure my voice remained my own, but made it even better. I feel more confident in my writing after working with her. Among the sea of editors on Reedsy, I'm so happy that I came across Jaime.

I'm so grateful I found Jaime to help me with my book. I'm a new author, and the writing world can be so alienating. It feels good to have guidance and to know what the manuscript really needs. It's fair to say that Jaime did much more than copy editing for me, and I would definitely come back to her with my next book.
