Editor: development/critique, line editing/copyediting, proofreading

I have worked in several areas of the publishing realm, including newspaper copyediting, magazine writing, literary agency and publishing house internships, ghostwriting, freelance editing, and proofreading for a business and marketing research company. I've also worked with local authors on their novels for publication. I tend to work on a fixed-price basis instead of hourly for editing, and I work on an hourly basis for formatting. There is nothing more pleasing to me than a stack of (digital) paper filled with errors waiting for correction. I am especially interested in editing long-form works of fiction and memoir. If you need formatting for Kindle Direct Publishing, I can format your Word file and create the layout for your eBook (minus cover design) using Kindle Create. Please note before contacting me that I prefer to communicate solely through Upwork messaging or email and I do not do voice calls. Thank you so much for your time and consideration!

"Emily really gets into the hands-on, nuts and bolts aspects of the editing process, and she pointed out things I never would have thought of. She carefully covered all the bases and communicated smoothly throughout the process. The final product was clean and thorough. At the same time, Emily didn’t come across as some robotic technocrat. She put a human face on all her communications and was always easy to understand. Overall, Heather exceeded my expectations, was trustworthy beyond reproach, and I recommend her without hesitation."
