Megann offers proofreading, copyediting, or developmental editing services for fiction manuscripts. She specializes in fantasy, science fiction, steampunk, and basically anything with magic (or dragons, or starlight and spaceflight and gods that walk the worlds) but can edit anything as long as it's fiction (or creative non-fiction, in some cases).
Blog posts (pertaining to fiction, worldbuilding, or the publishing industry)
Outside of editing, Megann spends her time trying to write her own novels with a pair of cats on her keyboard. When she's not being creative at all, she's either drinking coffee (the fuel of every writer), practicing Aikido, hiking in the mountains, or trying to get middle schoolers to follow Order of Operations as a math tutor (her day job).
