Content Editor * Line Editor * Copy Editor * Proofreader

As a professional editor, I am dedicated to amplifying unique voices with consistency and clarity. I received my B.A. in English and Comparative Literature from UNC Chapel Hill, where I studied Writing, Editing, and Digital Publishing. Through editorial positions with various publishing houses and literary magazines, I've honed my proofreading, content editing, and line editing skills, and I'm well versed in copy editing with the Chicago Manual of Style. While I specialize in fantasy, romance, and literary fiction, I enjoy reading and editing a wide range of genres (including poetry and nonfiction), and I have ample experience with editing historical fiction, women's fiction, mystery, suspense, and horror. I love collaborating with new and seasoned authors alike and am happy to answer any questions, so please don't hesitate to reach out!

"Nicole is a SUPER STAR editor and advocate for your story! When she committed to my project project, she truly showed she gave it her absolute all. She remained professional and consistent in her communications and in her feedback. Her thoughts were very carefully crafted and attuned to the story. The way she conveyed ideas and suggested edits was very clear, succinct, and all were helpful to patch up the prose and plot of my manuscript. All of her feedback made sense and there was nothing superfluous or confusing about her feedback. All are in mind of publications and the market and what a reader will want to see or know, and when. What I also appreciated about Nicole was her honesty and patience throughout the process. As a first-time job poster on UpWork, she talked me through the system too, which was outside of her scope of work, and she was transparent and upfront with all of the work and investment during our contract together. She was very gracious and courteous, and always a fantastic communicator. She remained conscientious of budget and also made decision with me every step of the way. It was especially overwhelming to see how immersed in the story she became, and how much she advocated for characters and saw the bigger picture. She is a detailed, astute reader and writer herself and it really shines through in her work as an editor. You will not be disappointed. Her craft and professionalism are what any writer will dream of being able to work with! For those considering hiring her: Nicole goes above and beyond to satisfy the vision of the writer and fulfill the goal of the contract. Many times I noticed she took the time and effort to research and be the best provider of advice and feedback as possible, in striving to be genuine and on the same page as the writer. She was transparent and blunt and also very kind in all she provided and in all communications, not just feedback but in messages. The daily updates were especially appreciated, and you will absolutely feel that she is a dedicated contractor and that choosing Nicole was the right decision for your project. Thank you Nicole for your amazing work with my manuscript, and I wish you many, many more projects to take you far!"
