Will Tyler – Editor

Trusted copy editor and proofreader for romance, mystery, fantasy, sci-fi, and suspense.


I copyedit and proofread fun novels for publishers like Berkley Publishing, Harlequin, and Orbit Books / Redhook, and I've worked with many talented indie authors here on Reedsy. I have thirteen years of experience, averaging fifty books per year.

While I defer to author preference, I use the main style guide and dictionary for the region you are publishing in to ensure that disbelief is thoroughly suspended, at least as far as the grammar goes. I also fix the formatting of your manuscript so that it's ready for a book designer. And I always provide a style sheet to ensure consistency as you move through the publishing stages.

Will was great! He was extremely thorough and professional. He got done well before his contracted time. I am a new writer and really had no idea what I was doing and he was very helpful and had endless patience.
