Overview

I have completed over 500 editorial passes of over 180 books. Most are series edits for genre fiction or romance novels though I have done several memoirs as well.
I worked for small presses as well as educational presses and for a large e-line publishing house. Now I work mainly as a freelance editor with authors wishing to be indie published, or who wish to polish their manuscripts to submit to traditional publishing houses. I can arrange all aspects of publishing a book, from three levels of editing, acquiring ISBNs, arranging cover design, and formatting for e-book and print.
