Lee Roberts – Editor

Copy editor, production editor, and content editor with 10+ years of experience in magazines, books, curriculum, and Bible studies.

Overview

As an experienced content and production editor (and an Enneagram One), making products right the first time is my goal. With this level of work ethic and personal expectation paired with an easygoing personality, I add a laid-back, yet professional dynamic to any team. My excellence, detail, and thoroughness provide what books, curriculum, and articles require in the publishing marketplace. With over a decade's worth of experience in editing in the InDesign workflow for content, production, and design, my proficiency and professionalism can afford authors the confidence to succeed.

With expertise from years in the Christian publishing industry, I offer a vast knowledge base in religion, faith, and music alike. Being a part of products that help make faith attainable is a passion of mine. Working on manuscripts from authors like David Platt to Lauren Chandler with an audience ranging from kids, to students, up through adults, my experience and exposure will raise the bar for any team.

As a self-publisher, this was my first experience hiring a professional editor. Lee made the process so smooth and painless! She is very responsive, helpful and understanding. Her edits improved my manuscript tremendously. I honestly didn’t realize how much more editing my manuscript needed before publishing. I truly enjoyed working with her and I would do it again in a heartbeat!
