If you are a book editor, please leave a post below giving us your name, contact info, and any web links.
After a short stint as a literary agent and helping authors improve their manuscripts, I found developmental editing and overall manuscript readiness more rewarding than fulfilling agent duties. I have a BA in English and have worked in many careers requiring editing and writing skills. I tailor services to fit the author’s needs and budget. I also include a final proofread on most packages once edits have been completed. I can be reached through my website.
Name: Samantha Chapman
My specialty is Role-playing game manuals and other semi-technical writing, but I’ve also worked on several novels and short prose and am willing to edit just about anything with words!
I offer manuscript editing services, primarily to Indie Authors. With packages and payment plans to fit most needs and budgets, my services encourage a lasting relationship between us. I look forward to editing with quality for you!

I’m WorkWorker, with an eye for errors. I do copy editing and proofreading at very reasonable rates, including a five-page sample. I look at typos, correct word usage, punctuation (clarity, natural pauses, whether it’s just plain correct, and whether or not the writer prefers/uses the serial comma), grammar, paragraphing, readability, dialogue, flow, sentence structure, and so on. I’m a published writer (novels, articles, children’s), a former library cataloguer, and a former newspaper proofreader. I’m 25+ years in as a word worker. My job is to make your work look good and I take that very seriously.

My name is Anna VanD, and I am a freelance copy & content editor. I am not a new translator & editor but my name is only just beginning to be recognized because I mostly worked in Greek texts for a long time. I do not have many editing projects to show but I am a professional translator, a published author (English Grammar book for Greek students B2 Level) so my ability to translate and edit various texts with scholastic grammar and punctuation is excellent. I believe it is my love of books and also my ability as a writer that makes me want to try to be a successful editor. My website is coming up soon but you can find more details of me in: http://www.skillpages.com/anna.vand

I have two decades of experience proofreading, editing and writing creatively. I have a BA in English Creative Writing. Most importantly, I love the escape that reading a good book provides. Being able to help ensure sentences and story ideas flow smoothly so that a reader stays fully engaged in the story brings me great satisfaction.
