Editing, Proofreading, Formatting, and Design

Whether you write fiction, memoir, creative nonfiction, or family history, you deserve to work with a skilled and professional editor who understands what you need on your journey to publication. I am a highly trained and experienced editor, and I can guide you through the stages of editing, proofreading, formatting, and design.

I offer a range of editorial services: manuscript evaluation, book doctoring, content and line editing, copyediting, proofreading, formatting in Word for print-on-demand, and conversion to ebook.

“Thank you again for your thoughtful edits. I believe the book is much better because it passed through your hands.”

Kristi Saare Duarte, author of The Transmigrant

“Julie Klein is a formidable editor. Her steely eyeballs miss nothing. I asked her to proofread Workwomans Press’s UNA CITA IN SANTIAGO* on a very short turnaround. She was excellent; I was totally impressed, and she enabled me to meet my deadline. I like working with someone who has the integrity Julie so clearly has. She was absolutely on schedule, fair in her pricing, and a pleasure to work with.” (*Despite the Spanish title, this is an English-language novella.)

Gail Chiarello, publisher and owner, Workwomans Press

Transcription, E-book processes

For self-publishing authors, I offer formatting for ebooks, interior design for print-on-demand books, and assistance navigating the process.

Did you find your grandmother’s handwritten diary in the attic? I will create an electronic manuscript. If you write by speaking, I will transcribe your voice recording or edit the digitally transcribed manuscript. If you are working on a book that requires transcription of interviews or other recorded material, count me in.

What I Do

“I hired Julie to create electronic versions of two historical manuscripts that previously existed in hard-copy format only. She followed my instructions to the letter and clearly communicated with me throughout the project. It was my pleasure to work with Julie, and I would not hesitate to recommend her manuscript-typing services to anyone.”

Lisa L. Owens, Owens Editorial Ink

“Julie did a great job on my recent manuscript. She was my safety net!”
