  1. Caity has edited a number of fiction novels for 48fourteen. She is meticulous and thorough. In addition to copy editing, she digs in deep and keeps an eye out for structure and plot, providing the author with valuable suggestions to strengthen both. She completes projects at a ridiculously fast pace—which, I envy, if I must be honest—while churning out high-quality work. Caity is open and enjoyable to communicate with. As an indie publisher, I value our working relationship. Caity is an asset to 48fourteen and would be for any project she takes on.


    1. Juanita, I so appreciate your comments and the endorsement from 48fourteen! Working with your publishing house has been an extremely rewarding and meaningful experience in my career. Thank you. 🙂


  2. I’ve worked with Caity on four books now and definitely recommend her. Not only does she catch all my mistakes and help me punch up my prose, she always has great insight on improving the characters and the story. I especially appreciate that she takes the time to point out what I’m doing well, too. She cheers me on and I can tell she loves her work. She also manages to provide thoughtful, thorough edits very quickly!

  3. How I adore my editor, let me count the ways! I was lucky to find her 5 years ago, and she’s been editing my romance novels ever since. She sees things you won’t no matter HOW many times you read your manuscript. She is thorough, sharp, and gives critical editing while also sprinkling encouragement and praise throughout. I’ve learned a lot from her also. She keeps up with writing trends you may not even know exist! A perfect blend of a professional who not only points out errors but compliments along the way so you know what you did right. 😉 That was what I needed in an editor and I’m lucky to have found her.

  4. Caity is the most thorough, knowledgeable copy editor I’ve ever worked with, and I’ve been in the newspaper business most of my adult life and thus worked with lots of editors. As an author myself, I’ve found her work on my manuscripts to be impeccable and her wisdom on all matters of successful writing, extremely helpful. I highly recommend her.
