This list is heavily weighted toward recent best sellers and critically acclaimed works; please see my list of privately edited titles for self-published or not yet published books. Over decades of freelancing, I’ve worked on a much broader range of books, for trade, art, and academic publishers as well as for individual authors who plan to self-publish or have not yet found a publisher. Although freelance copyeditors are commonly not named in trade fiction, Google Books offers a wider selection of books I am acknowledged in.
