Mikaela Pederson - Editor

Missoula, MT

A young and passionate copy and line editor specializing in thoughtful and authentic editing for indie authors.

Overview

I’m also a writer, just like you. I share your dreams, desires, limitations, and fears. I understand that there is nothing better than seeing your writing succeed. While many editors tend to specialize in one genre, I absolutely adore variety. It has not only made my job endlessly interesting, but it has also made me better at what I do. I am able to recognize patterns in my clients’ writing and make recommendations for their future writing based on those patterns. The diversity has allowed me to see exactly what matters in all stories and all writing, no matter the genre or topic, and this has given me a serious edge. Not only can I help you take your manuscript the next step up: I can help you take your writing there, too. I don’t claim to be an expert on writing compelling books, but I can tell you that delving to the core of over two and half million words has taught me many things. It is my goal to teach you these things, too. I am more than just an editor: I hope to encourage you, advise you, and simply be there for you in your publishing journey.
