Jody CalkinsI am a freelance editor specializing in a variety of genres, including science fiction, fantasy, mystery/thriller, and young adult fiction. Services include copyediting, in-depth line editing, developmental editing, and manuscript critiques.
As your book editor, my job is to provide feedback on your book manuscript, offering suggestions on where the wording and story can be improved; pointing out word choice issues and grammatical errors; highlighting your strengths; and making you aware of weaknesses. My primary goal as a freelance book editor is to help writers improve their writing work and their writing skills.
I've worked with a variety of subjects including middle grade, young adult, science fiction, fantasy, mystery, psychological thriller, and spy novels, and a variety of nonfiction topics including inspirational, self-help, business and marketing, and health.
Ready to hire a book editor for your manuscript? Whether you're self-publishing or sending your manuscript to a traditional publisher, I can help you become a better writer. That's my passion.
