Athens, Kentrikos Tomeas Athinon, Greece

Dedicated genre copy and developmental editor, with considerable experience and 0 deadlines missed.

Overview

Hello, MY name is Konstantine and I am a genre and non-fiction editor and former member of the EFA. My previous work includes copy and developmental editing done for,, Albedo One Magazine and a number of authors in the fantasy, horror and science fiction genres. Furthermore, the work I did for author Damien Knoll also allowed his short story "IR, YR, SR" to make it into the 2016 Bridport Literary Prize list.

My primary goal is to work on genre stories and to make them truly shine at the fullness of their potential, while maintaining a steady line of communication with the author, in order to bring their vision on the page. I can work on short stories, anthologies and books and deliver without ever once missing your deadline!
