Lorraine Burton – Editor

Editor, copy editor and proofreader with 20+ years' experience working with fiction and nonfiction across a wide variety of genres.


I am a former managing editor who has been in the publishing industry for 20+ years (yup, I started when I was twelve).

Over the course of my career, I had the opportunity to work on a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction projects, from books and ebooks to magazine articles. I spent a lot of my career in condensed books, which honed my skills in getting to the point of a piece of writing without sacrificing style or soul.

I am currently working on a freelance basis as a copy editor of children's books and a condenser of novels, among other things, and would be thrilled be part of getting your book out in the world.
