Editing

I am an ACES Certified Editor and Associate Member. Since 2016, I’ve been fortunate to serve as a copy and line editor for indie authors and small presses alike. Past clients have included #1 international bestselling author Mande Matthews, Angelita Gill/Verika Sloane, A.J. Norris, Chantal Gadoury, Holly M. Campbell and many more, as well as publishers The Parliament House and 48fourteen. My experience so far extends to the genres of paranormal and contemporary romance, young adult, fantasy, memoir and historical fiction, and always continues to expand.

As an author myself, I understand what it’s like to be on the writer’s end of the manuscript. That’s why I will handle your book baby with tact, kindness and professional care. With my prompt turnaround times, eagle eye for details, and friendly guidance, you can count on me to be your go-to for a polished, publishable manuscript. Your copy editing package includes not only PUGS (punctuation, usage, grammar and spelling), but also clarity, tone, flow, consistency, and friendly suggestions to improve dialogue, character development, and more. For availability and a quote, please complete the form. I look forward to working with you!

  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.

  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.
