Judith Jones - Editor

Tacoma, WA, United States

Writer, editor, storyteller: I believe everyone has an important story; I thrive on helping individuals and organizations share theirs.

Overview

I'm a hands-on, versatile communications professional with solid, practical expertise in writing and editing, author support, publication design and production, content development, social media management and communications planning.

Most of my work at present is with authors seeking to self-publish. I really enjoy helping them polish their work and bring their books into the world. I believe that every author has unique strengths and unique needs, so my goal is always to be flexible and find the best way of working for that particular author.
