I oversee and work alongside a team of production editors producing about 200 books (plus ebooks) per year. My department—editorial production (aka managing editorial)—works directly with authors and freelancers and handles copyediting, composition (typesetting), proofreading, indexing, editing cover copy, ebook creation, and prepress. We publish general-interest books (pop culture, self-help, history), professional development books (education, security, and library services), and academic books (textbooks, scholarly, and reference).
I oversaw copyediting, typesetting, proofreading, and indexing for fiction and nonfiction books publishing under the Dutton and Plume imprints, which publishes mysteries, literary fiction, cookbooks, and memoirs.
I have copyedited and proofread fiction and nonfiction books for Kensington, Dutton, Signet, and Hyperion (now Hachette). Those books have been primarily in the areas of mystery, thriller, romance (historical and contemporary), health, and memoir, but I also love science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, and historical fiction.
