Sandra, Copy Editor/Proofreader
Owner of One Love Editing
I’ve had a love affair with words for as long as I can remember. You could always find me hidden behind the bookshelves, nose firmly planted in the musky pages of a well-thumbed horror or crime paperback, as I inhaled those stories with a frantically beating heart. Then my teens hit, and my love for words battled with my love for boys—and better yet, book boyfriends. Ever since then, I have devoured thousands of romance stories, finding my niche in contemporary romance.
As a writer, I understand the struggles of getting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) to get your words out. The best piece of advice that I have for you, which admittedly I find hard to follow myself, is to get it out, get those words down on paper, and worry about the editing later. That’s where I come in. I can help you bring your story together and polish the words that you’ve brought to life.
Professionally, I’ve completed the relevant coursework for my Editing Certificate at Simon Fraser University (Canada) and hold a Bachelor of Psychology from Murdoch University (Australia). Prior to becoming a full-time editor, I worked for a decade in human resources across a range of sectors. I don’t miss the corporate life, but I wish someone would still leave donuts in the kitchen for break time.
I look forward to working with you on your manuscript!
Julia, Developmental Editor
Specializing in MM/LGBT and historical
I’ve been a voracious reader most of my life. I worried my teachers by reading horror and mysteries by the fourth grade, and I laugh at the thought of how they would judge my reading material now. I love books. More importantly, I love the journey of individual authors as they take their ideas and give them life. Very few things give me more pleasure than helping them do that.
My favorite genres are mystery, LGBT romance, historical, and the occasional high fantasy, but put a book in my hand and I’ll read it.
When I’m not reading, you can find me in the kitchen setting off the smoke alarm or hiding in my writer’s cave, which I should go to more often. Or eating a taco. Because tacos.
