Tia Ross – Editor

Precision-driven copyeditor/proofreader: polishing prose for HarperCollins, Hachette, Simon & Schuster, and dynamic indie authors

Overview

As a copyeditor and proofreader focused on both fiction and nonfiction, my enthusiasm for my craft knows no bounds, and I'm eager to collaborate with you!


My editing journey is all about bringing your words to life. I’ve worked with big names and publishers and been shouted out by Writer's Digest as a top book doctor. My goal? To help you cross the finish line to publishing success.


My approach is about detail and clarity. I go through your manuscript with a fine-tooth comb, not once, but twice. First, I get the lay of the land, setting up a style guide to make sure everything's consistent. Then, I dive deeper, tweaking and polishing to make sure your voice shines through, clear and strong. But it's not just about making edits—I'm here to share insights and tips to boost your writing skills along the way.


After we're done, I’m still here for you, ready to answer questions and share resources to help you on your publishing journey. And to sweeten the deal, I throw in free editorial services for your book's extra content. Let's make your story not just good, but unforgettable.
