Jamie R

Jamie R – Editor

I am an experienced Senior Editor/Proofreader specializing in comic books, graphic novels, young adult literature, and children's fiction.

Overview

Hi there! I am a writer/editor/proofreader/mentor/Jill of all trades, so long as those trades involve words. I work full-time as an editor at Archie Comic Publications, Inc., and have also written a number of series for the legendary company, including their first-ever YA original graphic novel, Betty & Veronica: the Bond of Friendship. In addition to my comic writing, I also write a bi-monthly column for the California-based, non-profit DIY punk culture magazine Razorcake, where I have frank discussions about mental health. I have also dabbled in the past with writing satire, and will jump at any and all opportunities to write comedy. I enjoy doing hands-on work with youth, teen, and mental health organizations, and doing all I can to make people smile. I am also a recently converted wrestling fan and would love to talk your ear off about it if you'll let me.

I am proud to call the near-outskirts of New York City my home, where I live with my husband and our small-yet-thriving window plant collection.

Jaime was an excellent help in editing this graphic novel with her clear communication and helpful feedback on the material; this experience was a little expensive but I believe it will pay off in the long run as Jaime also provided me with outside sources and displayed much enthusiasm for helping me with my work.

Jamie was fantastic to work with! Her notes and assessment letter were super helpful. She provided me with direction on how to make my graphic novel stronger, the characters more well-rounded, and tips on formatting. I am looking forward to digging in to revising and I will be hiring her again for that revision! Thank you so much, Jamie!
