Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
I edited my first manuscript 20 years ago, and I've been hooked ever since. I hold a BA in English and an MFA in Creative Writing, and I've worked for both indie presses and the Big Five. I prefer a good romance tale, but my editing touch has helped improve everything from dystopian YA thrillers to heartrending memoirs. Books I've edited have found their way onto various bestseller lists and received numerous awards.

I'd love to edit your work, and I look forward to doing so soon. For more info, please visit my website or email me at kbostonedit@gmail.com.

Helpful Proofreading Tip: Separate

Hey guys, another helpful proofreading tip: separate your text into individual sentences. This will help you read each sentence carefully. To do this, just press the return key after each period so every line begins a new sentence, then read each sentence separately, spotting grammar, punctuation, or spelling errors as you go.

Helpful Proofreading Tip: Read Your Work Backwards

Hey guys, today's proofreading tip: read your work backwards. We can sometimes become blind to our own mistakes, because our brains automatically correct grammatical errors as we read them. Reading the text backwards, word by word, helps break this pattern.

Helpful Proofreading Tip: Concentrate

Hey guys, today's proofreading tip: concentrate. To catch all the mistakes in your manuscript, you need to get rid of all distractions and potential interruptions. That means turning off your cell phone, TV, or radio and staying away from email and - oh, the horror! - social media.

Helpful Proofreading Tip: Read Your Work Aloud

Hey guys, another quick proofreading tip: give a copy of your manuscript to another person, and keep a copy for yourself. Then take turns reading it out loud to each other, and while one of you reads, the other follows along to catch any errors.
