Copyeditor and proofreader of non-fiction with experience in an array of topics. Friendly and reliable service for you and your manuscript!
I work freelance as an editorial project manager, copyeditor and proofreader. I am always looking for new projects to work on so if you have a manuscript you would like to get ready for publication, please get in touch!
As a Production Editor I project managed up to 25 books at any one time for an international publisher. I oversaw the whole production process, from receiving the raw manuscript files, seeing the manuscript through the copyediting and proofreading stages, resolving any issues that arose during the course of production, and finally sending off print-ready files to the publisher. As the project manager I communicated with all parties involved in the production process, from authors and the publisher to typesetters and freelancers, to ensure the process ran as smoothly as possible.
I also project managed the production of a number of journals, working with the journal editor to get issues out to a schedule and in good shape.
Copyediting and proofreading were another part of this job role and I loved getting a new project to work on and feeling that I could really improve it through close collaboration with the author.
As an Editorial Assistant I project managed academic and reference titles on behalf of an international publisher, seeing books through the production process from raw manuscript to print-ready files. I communicated with all the key players in the production process, including authors, the publisher, typesetters, artworkers and freelancers.
