Kalee Lineberger

Kalee Lineberger – Editor

Specializing in literary fiction, I can work in developmental, substantive, copy, and proofing stages of editing.


I am motivated by the powers of words and story-telling, for just as music inspires with notes, writing inspires with words.

Southern-born and -raised, I have worked with regional independent publishers in all stages of editing, from developmental to proofreading. Specifically with Hub City Press I have edited the winners of the SC First Novel Prize for the past three years. Catch me on the copyright pages of such works as Ember, Whiskey & Ribbons, The Wooden King, and, more recently, The Prettiest Star.

Even though I might throw in some punctuation variety (I love a well placed em dash), I think author voice is the most important part of writing.

I had a great experience with Kalee and Reedsy - the first time I have used it. Kalee was very prompt in answering my request for copyediting services and her price was very reasonable. She kept me informed on her progress and finished a few days early. I'm very pleased with her work. It has vastly improved my manuscript. I like how easy it all was.
