Oren Eades

Oren Eades – Editor

I'm an editor for a wide range of books across many genres, including NYT and WSJ bestsellers, sci-fi/fantasy/horror novels, and more.

Overview

I'm an editor for a wide range of books across an array of genres—everything from #1 NYT-bestselling memoirs to WSJ-bestselling political texts, from science fiction, fantasy, and horror novels and anthologies to children’s picture books, from topical humor to self-help guides, from cookbooks to business manuals.

I started in publishing as an intern and, after moving to New York City, worked my way up to become a copyeditor, a proofreader, a fact-checker, an editorial assistant, an assistant editor, and eventually a full editor for books across several imprints of Skyhorse Publishing, where I also managed editorial and publicity duties for the sci-fi/fantasy/horror imprints Night Shade Books and Talos Press. Today, after moving to California, I put that experience to use as a full-time freelance editor.

I can help with every part of a book's creation, from the writing process itself through edits, submissions, and publication. Whether you need big-picture developmental and structural edits or a word-by-word polish focusing on grammar and technique or anything in between, I'll work with you to answer any questions you may have and to make your manuscript the absolute best it can be.

In the end, though, my goal with every edit is not just to help you create a great manuscript, but to help you learn, grow, and improve as a writer, both now and in the future.

(And I'm always happy to help with advice, encouragement, and kindness in general, which I think every author—and every person—needs and deserves!)

I had the pleasure of working with Oren on my manuscript, and I couldn't be more satisfied with the experience. He was prompt, very kind, and consistently met all the agreed-upon deadlines. What truly stood out was the exceptional quality of his work. The detailed copyediting and proofreading were meticulous, elevating my manuscript to a polished and publishable state.

Oren did a fantastic job with my query letter, and it came out much better than it started, which is honestly all you could really ask for in a query letter review. His feedback was clear and concise, allowing me to focus on putting the feedback into action.

Oren was fantastic to work with. He was warm and encouraging but challenged me. I highly recommend him for copy/line editing and I feel like I’ve already learned so much from him. He assisted me greatly with polishing up my debut novella (post-developmental edit). He was punctual with all communication and very professional. I hope to work with him again in the future!

Ahead of schedule and on point, this was an effortless copy edit collaboration. Oren's technical knowledge of English is impressive, and I definitely learned a couple of things in addition to receiving a much cleaner manuscript.
