EDITORIAL PORTFOLIO

A SELECTION OF BOOKS THAT I HAVE WORKED ON.

AUTHOR TESTIMONIALS

“Having Courtney as my copyeditor was a breeze and a blessing. It was amazing to work with someone sincerely enthusiastic about the story and its future, and I felt myself grow as a writer alongside my developing manuscript.”

ABOUT THE EDITOR

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Courtney Rae Andersson, and I'm the editor behind Elevation Editorial. I have experience both as an in-house project editor at a traditional publishing house and as a freelancer working with clients just like you.

 

A few of the books I've worked on have won awards, and every single one of them has 4 star+ reviews on Amazon. Helping authors achieve their dreams and tell amazing stories is my goal in life, and I can't wait to help you elevate your writing superpower to new heights.

For fiction, I specialize in science fiction & fantasy (and all its subgenres), but I also enjoy and would love to do more in the romance, horror, and mystery genres. For nonfiction, I specialize in memoir and self-help.
