Whether you're looking for an in-depth edit that digs into the meat of your story or a final polish on your words before you share your manuscript with the world, sometimes you need a professional set of eyes to ensure your book is its best possible shape.

Having worked in publishing for close to a decade, I have the experience to make your novel shine. During my career as an acquiring editor at Mira Books (an upmarket commercial fiction imprint of Harlequin/HarperCollins), I edited novels across a wide variety of genres including literary and women’s fiction, suspense and psychological thrillers, science fiction, fantasy, and contemporary romance. Before that, I completed two editorial internships at Knopf Canada and HarperCollins Canada and was a Proofreader at Harlequin, working on the full range of their series romance and single title imprints.

I've worked with debut and New York Times bestselling authors alike, and I've always thrived on the excitement of discovering new voices and helping established authors to reach new heights in their work. I look forward to bringing a keen eye and wealth of editorial experience to your project.

As a freelance editor, I offer a wide range of services from query letter critiques to developmental edits. While I specialize in contemporary fiction, women's fiction, and suspense/psychological thrillers, I offer services across a wide variety of genres (excluding only middle grade and children's fiction).

Ready to get started? So am I.


TESTIMONIALS

“I’ve worked with Michelle on four novels and am grateful for her eagle-eye editing skills and her ability to elevate the story, while still allowing the writer’s voice to shine through. Michelle is professional, enthusiastic, and so easy to work with– my books would not be the bestsellers they are without her feedback and valuable input!” – Karma Brown, bestselling author of Come Away with Me and The Life Lucy Knew


“When Here and Now and Then landed in Michelle’s inbox, I was convinced that I couldn’t push it any further. Then she gave notes with smart, surgical precision: simple ways to tighten and tweak things that everyone prior had overlooked, from my agent to my award-winning critique partner. It made so much sense, yet she had the superpower to look on a level beyond everyone else — and she conveyed the logic so effectively that executing the edits was straightforward. I am forever indebted to her and recommend her brilliance to anyone.” –Mike Chen, author of Here and Now and Then


“Michelle’s many years of commercial editorial experience across genres shows in her ability to make ingenious recommendations to improve pacing, characterization, and structure. When we were editing Hunting Annabelle, Michelle made incisive recommendations that sped up the pacing and increased reader engagement throughout the book. Michelle was instrumental in developing a vision for my second book, The Kill Club, her guidance helped me stay on genre and weave multiple points of view together into a cohesive narrative. I can’t recommend her editorial services highly enough.” –Wendy Heard, author of Hunting Annabelle


“I had the pleasure of working with Michelle on my second and third novels, The Neighbors and Her Secret Son, which Michelle acquired in her editorial role at HarperCollins. Insightful, whip-smart, highly imaginative and with stellar communication skills, Michelle is a dream editor who knows exactly how to make you get the best out of your manuscript. Collaborating with her has been a highlight of my writing career thus far, and I recommend her services without hesitation or reservation. If you want your story to shine and stand out from the rest, talk to Michelle now.” –Hannah McKinnon, author of The Neighbors

It's important to find an editor who knows your genre and the current market. Michelle was above and beyond expectations. She provided comparable titles and helped me focus (redirect) a messy project to a clearly defined elevator pitch. Very prompt, courteous and professional. Thorough. Attentive to details. Highly recommend.

Simply put, Michelle Meade cares about your project as much as you do. No stone is left unturned and those devilish gremlins like inconsistencies, repetition, and lack of clarity are unearthed. The world is filled with better writers the minute Michelle Meade emails their work back to them. Thank you, MM...on behalf of me and my readers.
