"I’ve been editing for Reedsy for more than three years. Because of the number of requests I receive—especially since genre fiction is booming right now—I can limit the books I edit to ones that are well written and that have strong commercial potential. I love to take great books and help make them outstanding, and Reedsy has allowed me to do just that."
"Working with Reedsy has given me the opportunity to work with incredible authors like T. M. Holladay and M. G. Herron. They've created a community of dedicated authors and talented professionals that is redefining the publishing world. I've built the foundation of an author consulting business through Reedsy's platform."
