I'm a freelance editor with experience editing book-length fiction and nonfiction manuscripts, queries, proposals, resumes, cover letters, websites, brochures, puzzle books, and more. I also design book covers. I previously worked as an editor at Cardinal Publishers Group and am now a literary assistant at Holloway Literary Agency.
I provide professional freelance editing services, specializing in book-length fiction and nonfiction manuscripts, query letters, proposals, synopses, cover letters and resumes, websites, brochures, and more. I also design book covers.
At Holloway Literary Agency, I'm responsible for reviewing full manuscript submissions (primarily young adult fiction, women's fiction, romance, mysteries, thrillers, historical fiction, and more). I also prepare reader reports, review queries and partials, and manage agency social media accounts.
As an editor at Cardinal Publishers Group (which publishes under the imprint Blue River Press), I was in charge of managing the production schedule for all titles and editing manuscripts to Chicago Style standards. At Cardinal, I primarily worked on nonfiction books in the health and sports genres, but also worked in mainstream fiction, historical fiction, and some short story collections. I was responsible for evaluating query letters, proposals, and manuscript submissions. From a business standpoint, I created profit and loss charts for upcoming titles, solicited printing companies, wrote press releases, collaborated with interior and cover designers, and sent finalized books to press. I also assigned ISBNs and create bar codes for all titles and wrote back cover descriptions.
