I have worked with numerous self-published authors to execute their visions and create a clean manuscript. I approach each book as an individual creation, but with an eye towards genre and industry expectations.
After I earned my MA in English from the University of Georgia, I spent a brief amount of time studying fiction writing in the MFA program at Temple University. I currently work in book publishing in Atlanta, GA.
I have worked in the following genres: Business, Genre Fiction, Literary Fiction.
I edit according to the Chicago Manual of Style, but I can apply any style guide the author chooses.
•Review fiction submissions for the literary magazine for Temple University's MFA program.
•Review book manuscript submissions and write preliminary publishing proposals
•Provide developmental editorial assistance to book manuscripts in progress
•Line edit and proofread book manuscripts for publication
•Consult in the book design and layout process
•Consult with clients/ authors throughout the book publishing process
•Review loose proofs and bound proofs for printing errors.
•Genres: business, non-fiction, memoir, fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, self help, western, travel
