Overview

I'm a professional writer, editor, and proofreader who loves to work with the English language and help others to perfect their manuscript. I have worked extensively with book publishers, providing copy-editing and proofreading services on a wide variety of books, from self-help to spiritual to memoirs and novels. I began working with book publishers in 2002, and have never looked back. I am an author myself, which helps me to relate to the authors I work with. And, as a proud grammar nerd, I bring an eye for the nuts and bolts of the trade.

Through the years, I've worked with publishers such as David C Cook (Christian nonfiction with some romantic fiction), BenBella (self-help, business and management, health and well-being, memoirs, relationships, and more), HaperCollins Leadership (self-improvement and business), and Oceanview (crime, suspense, and thriller fiction). I've proofread and copy-edited literally hundreds of books, with diverse styles and subject matters.

I think, in any collaboration, communication is key. Determining what the author is looking for up front and agreeing on what to focus on before work on the project begins are of paramount importance. As an author, I know what it's like to create something from the ether, as it were, and I look forward to working with you to make your manuscript as crisp, polished, and error-free as it can possibly be.

Dan Appleton
Michael Fedison has improved my book with his thorough and detailed edits. It is the little things that count if you want to publish. For example, I did not know, until I reviewed Michael's edits, that there are three dashes, and if you don't use dashes correctly, your book will appear unprofessional. If you want a great editor, Michael is your best bet.

Dan Appleton, August 2022


Mohammed Ali Ejaz
Michael was an absolute pleasure to work with, he was enthusiastic, friendly, and highly punctual in responding to all queries throughout the collaboration. The quality of his work was excellent and I had no issues throughout the process. A real gem of an editor, I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Michael is a true pro. Great communication and extremely thorough. I wish I'd hired him to proofread my prior books! Needless to say I look forward to working with him again.

Renata Paschoal
Michael became my proofreader for a whole project. I'm about to launch a short story collection, and thanks to Michael, the stories have become clearer and more appealing. It was great to work with him. He always replied to me promptly and helped to hone my writing. Without him, it wouldn't be possible to accomplish my ultimate goal. :)
