Hi, I’m Bridget.
I love helping indie authors produce manuscripts that are professional, polished, and error-free.
I believe in independently published books that share the quality of traditionally published books, and I care about fixing typos that distract from the message you wish to convey to your reader.
Words fascinate me, and I take a special delight in punctuation.
I have experience copyediting/proofreading novels, short stories, and non-fiction manuscripts.
Although I have received no official editorial training, I have spent the last couple of years in self-taught employments that include studying from books such as The Chicago Manual of Style, The Elements of Style, The Pocketbook of Proofreading, and The McGraw-Hill Desk Reference for Editors, Writers, and Proofreaders.
Genres that I have copyedited/proofread include:
– Historical Fiction
– Christian Fiction
– Children’s Fiction
– Christian Inspirational (Nonfiction)
I respect your writing.
All edits are marked as suggestions for you to approve or disapprove, and I won’t make any changes to your manuscript or style choices without your knowledge.
I work hard to make sure that every suggested edit I make is backed up by an authority on the English language (The Chicago Manual of Style, Merriam-Webster Dictionary, The Elements of Style, etc.).
I love reading. And history. And reading about history.
Thus Historical Fiction is my genre of choice when it comes to fiction. I am also fond of the classics. I enjoy activities such as writing, cooking, playing the piano, singing, playing board games, and exploring the outdoors.
I was born and spent many of my growing years in Kansas, the smack center of the United States. I love my home state with its great open plains and big sky. But I also love the ocean.
I am currently living in Southern Chile, South America. Here I enjoy a view of the sea, an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables, and learning to speak a second language.
I am a follower of Jesus Christ.
He is the strength of my life. More than anything I want to be able to hear His voice and follow His plan for me, and I strive to live in a way that is pleasing in His eyes. With that in mind, I set high standards for myself in what I read and will only edit books that are clean and God-honoring.
Now tell me about yourself!
