A freelance editor, I specialize in fiction but I've worked on non-fiction as well as web copy, corporate literature, and non-profit materials. I also edit and write for the group blog Magnificent Nose, which covers many topics but gravitates towards articles about writing and reading.

I'm also a lyricist; a guitarist for the band Baroque & Hungry; and I'm a touring cyclist.

You can contact me about editing matters here. (Please don't use this form for Stack Exchange business; instead, ping me in chat.)

comment Managing genre and rating for a story
Asking for "insights or suggestions" isn't a question that can be answered definitively, since it's more like a discussion question than a question for a Q&A site like this one. Perhaps if you could edit this to be more about writing and managing writing, and less about the site's interface, it would be a better, more targeted question.

comment Science and fantasy + arcanepunk
I'm afraid that book recommendations are off-topic here. Unless you can narrow this some more and make it more relevant to your writing, I think this is probably going to have to be closed.

comment Is there a quality difference in purchased hardcovers?
It's a valid question. Wal-Mart has a rep for purchasing merchandise from suppliers at very low cost, neccesitating substandard production runs. I'd be interested in knowing if this is true, and if it extends to books. I can't find anything to back any of this up, though.

Lauren, I agree, but this is a borderline situation. If people vote-to-close, it'll show the community agrees with you.
