Taylor Graham - Editor

Orlando, FL, United States

Experienced, honest, and direct editor who's not afraid to speak the truth, if it will make a manuscript better.

Overview

By day, I work full-time as an in-house editor for a Christian self-publishing company. I work with all kinds of genres and all kinds of authors (most are non-experienced, publishing their first book) and truly enjoy helping authors craft their work, making it the best it can be. If you want an honest opinion, I'm your girl.
