Thank you for considering Inkstand Editorial! I’m so glad you’re here.
I’ve been an editor since 2012, and launched Inkstand in 2016 with the goal of helping writers get their manuscripts ready for the next stage. For some authors, that means a final copy edit or proofread before sending it off to agents, and for others, it means a deep, developmental edit to find and help fix story-wide issues. Whatever the case may be, I enjoy working with new and veteran authors alike on their way to publication.
In order to keep my skills sharp and ensure I’m meeting the standards of the industry, I’m a member of the Professional Editors Network, the Editorial Freelancers Association, and ACES: The Society of Editing.
Though I accept many genres for editing (see the full list here), my favorites to work on are science fiction, fantasy, mystery, and historical fiction, especially with female protagonists. If you’re interested in the types of books I read in my spare time, I’ve written about a few on my blog.
