Masterpiece Editing

You wrote a book – your masterpiece. I’ve been in your shoes. You’ve poured your heart out and bled all over the pages. Now what? Even New York Times Best Selling authors need a copyeditor. That’s where I come in. While I can’t promise to make your book a best seller (you should be wary of anyone who does), I will strive to hone your story into a marketable work. Words are my life and I will do my best to polish your words, clean them up, and help make your masterpiece sparkle.

Along with good ol’ fashioned experience, I have a bachelor’s degree in American and British literature from the University of South Florida. My teaching experience has solidified grammar concepts in my head and provided me with the capability of spotting frequent errors.

I have copyedited and proofread for books such as:

  • Maria Ann Green, In the Rearview
  • J. Willis, Battle for the Throne: Tales from Falyncia, Book 1 (first three chapters)
  • Jennifer Rae Gravely, Drown: Orders of the Sky #1

And then there are my own published works via Clean Reads (formerly Astraea Press):

Give Me a Test Drive!

You need to be comfortable with my editing skills. Therefore you can try me out – FREE! Send me your first five pages, I will edit them and send them back. If you like my work, then we can talk rates and contracts. If my work doesn’t meet your satisfaction, then I completely understand.

I am open to copyediting all types of work (with the exception of erotica) but my primary interest is in these genres of fiction:

  • General
  • Young adult
  • Middle grade
  • Fantasy
  • Sci-fi
  • Dystopia
  • Historical
  • Christian
  • Adventure
  • Paranormal
  • Mystery

If you are interested in my editing services and would like to know if I might be a good fit for your manuscript, please feel free to contact me for rate inquiries at shea_ford@yahoo.com. If you submit your manuscript, please format it in the following manner:

  • Double-spaced
  • 1″ margins
  • Times New Roman 12 point font

I look forward to enjoying your ideas and appreciate the honor of helping you on your way to publication!
