Etched Vellum Editing
Independent editor and proofreader. My job is to help you make your manuscript the best it can be. I’m committed to perfecting your writing while preserving your unique style, voice, and message.
I have worked in-house at a traditional publishing company, as a proofreader at a national healthcare company, as a ghostwriter for an entrpreurial book writing company, as a web content writer for a local bed and breakfast… the list goes on. But for the past four years, what I have most loved to do is collaborate with independent authors one-on-one on their passion projects.
I specialize in nonfiction, self-help, spiritual, memoir, and historical and contemporary fiction. My services include developmental editing, line editing, copy editing, and proofreading. (Please see my website for full services.)
Depending on the type of edit, I will look at anything from plot/character development and overall goals of the book, to language style, to fact checking, to minute issues of grammar and spelling.
I dedicate myself to my clients’ projects with the care that they themselves have been putting into them since day one. Whether you’re having trouble transferring your book from your brain to the page or almost ready to submit it for publication, I can help you put your best foot forward. Writing and editing are my passions and beautiful, concise prose my goal.
When I’m not working, I’m hiking in the beautiful Arizona wilderness with my husband, writing a short story, or reading a good book in the sunshine. Feel free to contact me with queries or to learn more about my qualifications and interests.
