Nicholas Vari – Editor

Copy editor and proofreader specializing in religious non-fiction with 9 years of experience.

Overview

I'm a former copy editor at Saint Benedict Press and TAN Books who has worked with many amazing and inspiring authors. I specialize in religious non-fiction and have worked on books from small devotionals and prayerbooks to large academic works on theology.

In copy editing, my goal is to help you make the best possible version of your book, polishing any rough patches while allowing your voice and message to truly shine. I'll work with you to identify your style preferences and make sure they're applied consistently so that you have a manuscript that's clean and still truly reflects your passion and creativity.
