Services Offered

I specialize in editing fantasy, science fiction, and romance novels. Wherever your story leads you, I am happy to follow! Editing with changes tracked ensures that you will know exactly what edits I am making and can accept or reject them as you see fit; after all, it is your story!

Proofread

The final stage in the editing process. Your manuscript should be nearly ready to publish when you take this step. Errors in grammar, punctuation, and spelling will be fixed, and missing words inserted.

Copy Edit

After you have made your manuscript the best you can, you need someone to make sure that everything is in place. Readability will be enhanced and technical errors and inconsistencies (grammar, repetition, word choice, style, repetition, spelling, and repetition), as well as confusing/awkward wording, fixed.

Line Edit

Have a story but aren’t sure everything is in perfect order? I can assist you on your journey as you take your story from draft to full-fledged novel. Your WIP will be inspected line by line, examining plot, characters and, yes, grammar and punctuation. I also offer limited rewriting services!

Reviews

My fierce love of fantasy novels, extensive experience editing documents, and my Bachelor’s degree in English from BSC have enabled me to provide excellent services to all my clients. Since I began my freelancing career in earnest, all my projects have received five-star reviews! Here are a few snippets of feedback my clients have provided:

Finding the right editor has been a big hurdle for me, but I finally found what I needed in Michaeli. I wanted an editor who had good communication skills and a strong knowledge base. Her edits and comments were like a mini master class. I plan to continue working with Edits by Knight and recommend her to all my writing friends.

            – Shelly Monarch

“Working with Michaeli has been a joy. I’m constantly trying to push myself and my writing. She does a great job engaging the writer with her notes and direction.”

            – Charles D’Amico

“Michaeli was the perfect editor for my first novel. Not only was she meticulous in her editing, she also provided encouragement to me as a writer. Through her work on the manuscript, I was able to confidently start the process of pitching my book.”

            – Heather Stephens

Miko lives in North Alabama with their husband, Mark—two bright blue dots in a really red state. The pair have three cats, Henry, Louise, and Jefferson Twilight, and live the quiet and satisfying lives of two nerdy introverts. The work-from-home lifestyle is perfect for Miko, who was diagnosed with ADHD and autism in their late thirties.

     In their spare time, Miko enjoys gardening, playing the piano, singing, playing JRPGs, Tabletop gaming, and (of course) reading.
