Book Editor/Writing Coach/Editorial Graphic Designer

Hello 👋, I am an Editor specializing in Content Editing, Developmental Editing, Copy Editing, Proofreading, KDP Formatting, and Production Management for non-fiction and fiction books. I obtained a BA Hons Creative Writing and English Literature degree at the Metropolitan University of London. After graduating, I worked as a Copy Editor at Carnacet Press, a London-based publishing house, for three years. I enjoyed working with hundreds of talented authors in this role. I was then scouted to work for Cosmopolitan Magazine UK as Lead Editor for their Lifestyle section. While working in this role, I managed the editors on the team, directing all content and ensuring everything was up to editing standards and styling. I obtained a Hootsuite Social Media Content Management course while working for Cosmopolitan magazine. I have since worked with companies around the globe, helping them expand their reach and brand awareness through effective social media campaigns. After two years in this role, I entered the Freelance world to ignite my passion for traveling and embracing new cultures while continuing my career. I have worked with thousands of authors worldwide, transforming their books into international bestsellers. I have also worked with hundreds of companies, assisting them in becoming successful via their social media platforms. I look forward to working with you! Best, Mimi

"Alia Mimi Safiya is amazing. She has edited 3 of my International Best-selling books, and I cannot begin to describe her dedication to detail, her well thought out suggestions, her professionalism, and her abounding support of my projects throughout the whole process to completion. I learned a lot about writing books by watching how she worked! She has a 5-star rating from me!"

"Mimi is not only as professional as she is passionate. purposeful and powerful with every edit. She combines fire and calm; leather and lace with every word and phrase she assists you with. She executes this expertise with a rarely-founded gift. During our five-month process on my solo book: "The 21 Days to Your Best You: Keys to a Life of Excellence," Mimi held my hand, yet pushed me when I needed to be. She challenged me in my edits so that I could be the best version of myself, in detailing my 40 years in preventative health. She guided me to weave my personal stories into protocols that have allowed me to get 1.1M books/downloads sold in 5 months alone! I never would have taken that path by myself. I will always be eternally 'great-full' for her in my life. Dr. J"

"I was super grateful to have hired Mimi to be the main editor for my Prosper mE book. Her edits were on point, efficient, effective and very helpful. She understood the book and did not edit it as a project, but rather became a big part of its success. I would highly recommend Mimi to anyone seeking editing of their work :)"

"After discovering that self-publishing didn’t work for me, I hired Mimi, and she was awesome! She helped transform my book into an international bestseller. She not only edited my work, but also challenged me to write more in-depth. I highly recommend her!"

"Mimi is an amazing editor. It's scary the first time someone reads your manuscript, but Mimi made me feel like my writing was worthy of others reading it. Her brilliance in finding the right way to paraphrase my thoughts always hit the mark. She went above and beyond her editing expertise and was instrumental in keeping me on track to ensure I met my deadline. She was attentive and responsive every step of the way. Even though we worked in distant time zones, I was amazed that every morning I had new edits to review and there were many nights that she was the last person I’d send a note to as I shut down my computer. It was as if she was by my side the entire time. She was both my critic and cheerleader helping me get to the finish line. I would highly recommend Mimi as your book editor. "

"I couldn't have been more pleased with the editing skills provided by Mimi. She worked closely with me to make sure she understood my vision and didn't try to change my voice. She helped me make sure the content flowed in a way that readers were sure to follow. She meets deadlines and her feedback if thoughtful and encouraging. I highly recommend her if you are in need of an editor for your next book. "
