Vanessa Wells: Copy Editor, Proofreader, Indexer



Scrolling pitch: I specialize in historical, romance, and speculative fiction, and I prevent embarrassment.

“You’ve saved my ass so many times…” ~ trilogy author

“Thanks for bringing your talent to this project. I really enjoy working with you.”  ~repeat client

“This has been a wonderful journey.” ~ repeat client

The details:

I provide editing services for academic and trade publishers, fiction and non-fiction indie authors, magazines, and music recordings. I also index books for higher education, theological study, and general readership. I’m experienced in editing with the conventions of Canadian, American, British, and Australian English. I’ve edited historical, sci-fi, YA, fantasy, horror, apocalyptic, speculative, erotic, LGBTQ, romance, and Christian fiction. Manuscripts dealing with stories of addiction and recovery are particularly welcome. Have a look around my website to see why I’m always a little sorry to wrap up for the day!
