I often get requests for a good editor to help out at all stages of the manuscript process, so I was extremely excited to learn that Christine Pride is going to start taking on freelance editing projects.
If you haven’t heard of Christine, she worked for many years at Random House and most recently at Hyperion, editing eight New York Times bestsellers and working behind-the-scenes on many more. She has a great eye and a wide breadth of experience that spans from novels to memoir to self-help.
She’s available for idea development, editing, book doctoring… you name it. I’ve known Christine for almost ten years, and she’s an awesome person in addition to being a talented editor.

Thank you, Christine, for offering your talents and experience. The ongoing ebook revolution will benefit. And thank you, Nathan, for spreading the word.
How exciting–Congratulations, Christine on making the jump.
I need a good freelance editor and didn't know who to trust or where to start. Having Nathan's recommendation is a huge help; this is right on time. Thank you!

I'm a freelance editor, and I love it too. The freedom is great.
I'm also a writer, though, so thanks for the recommendation. 😉
Editors need editors too!
And I'll echo Lauren's comments.

I'm a writer who's thought of editing because I have an eagle eye for errors. But so far, I've just traded for critiques. I don't think an editor is allowed to say I just want to edit fantasy and SF because everything else is boring. Well, not comedy, but I can get that in fantasy and SF too. Christine sounds like she would be a great help after my last round of critiques.
I am sure there is a lot of lucky books waiting for your talent.
Good luck Christine!
Any advice on freelance editors specializing in fantasy?
Lauren @ Pure Text says
In response to Sher's comment, editors do that all the time. 🙂
I don't, but plenty do.
Think of it this way, as an author, would you want to take your book to someone who secretly dislikes your genre? Or to someone who openly specializes in it?
