I'm a copy editor and proofreader based in Minneapolis, MN. Experience with fiction and nonfiction ranging from paranormal romance to annual reports. Eleven years of working with occult publisher Llewellyn Worldwide grounded me in both alternative spirituality and "genre" fiction like romance, YA, supernatural, mystery and memoir, while work with ad agencies, journals and newsletters gave me experience with articles, ad copy and legal. Recent projects include a book about Somatic Abolitionism, a book about poetry and hope, a guide to the sutras of Buddha for beginners, a novel and a medical memoir.
I usually work with publishers, book agents and established writers but I have worked with many a first manuscript.
I set my price using Reedsy's self-publishing cost calculator, so have a look before asking me to bid: https://blog.reedsy.com/guide/how-to-self-publish-a-book/cost-to-self-publish/. I don't double- or triple-book projects, so your project will get my undivided attention.
