MY PUBLICATION CONTRIBUTION

My Best Editing Work

The Outcome:

The author and I were able to work together as a team to accomplish the missing steps in his self-publishing process that he had attempted with other editors for years.

It was such an awesome experience, and I am so glad I was here to assist him in his endeavor to get his book publishable after years of disappointment.

His book is now published, and I am proud to say that my name is mentioned in the acknowledgements as one of his editors.

What I Did:

I did the copy editing for him as he was getting ready to self-publish his first novel. Then, after he had made some changes, such as deleting some minor characters that didn't add value and some other revisions to his novel, I did the final proofreading, line editing, and copy formatting until his book was finally publishable.

He then got his cover designed and was finally ready to publish after years of spending a lot of money on editors, only to be dissatisfied with the outcome. He had finally come across me and hired me as a proofreader. He quickly decided to give me a shot at "the whole nine yards" and could not have been more pleased or impressed with my work.

He said a lot of great things about me—TO me, so that is how I know, and he posted his review on my former proofreading website.

His Review:

After conducting an extensive search of nearly 35 professional editors to work on my novel and keeping this project within my budget, I selected Kimberly. Working with her was a lot of fun - she was prompt, thorough, and conscientious. Her editing skills are par excellent, and I relied heavily on her advice to make my novel better than I could have ever imagined. As a novice in this novel writing business, Kimberly was very patient with me and always made herself available via phone conversation which is rare in many professions today. I was extremely impressed with the quick turnaround on the 17 chapters I submitted to her for line and copyediting. If you’re looking for a seasoned, industrious editor with integrity, I strongly recommend Kimberly Laughlin-she’s the BEST!
