Editing Service

As an author who started out self-published, completing all aspects of ebook production by herself including editing and formatting for the KDP publishing environment, OJ developed editing and publishing skills which enabled her to produce quality self-published books that eventually gained the attention of her publisher Next Chapter, whom she signed on with in 2018. She also has many years of experience as an editor with a major commercial publisher, Thomson Reuters.

She now works on a freelance basis providing an affordable and thorough editing service for authors of commercial fiction and non-fiction, many of whom are new and emerging, or publishing independently.

Advantages of working with OJ as an editor:
  • Highly affordable rates. As OJ is building her portfolio as a new freelance editor, she charges around two-thirds of what you would expect to pay most professional editors. Also as OJ is based in Australia, the exchange rate works to your advantage. 
  • OJ will not only edit your manuscript to perfection, she can format and ready it for direct upload to Amazon KDP as a mobi or epub file via ebook conversion software.
  • OJ can also design simple but effective ebook covers in Canva, if you need an affordable ebook cover made up for your book.
  • OJ is a professional member of IPED (Institute of Professional Editors) so you know her editing skills are verified by an independent professional body. 

Testimonials and recommendations:

I can't emphasize enough how advantageous it has been for me to work with OJ Modjeska as the editor of my book. She is an accomplished author in her own right, with an Amazon bestseller to her credit. That's the kind of editor who can come up with a catchy subtitle for your book, as she did with mine!  Writing skills. Editing skills. The two go hand in hand. OJ pays slavish attention to detail, and will work diligently until you are totally satisfied with the end product. With Ms. Modjeska, you get the whole package. In addition to her editing abilities, she can also design a knockout book cover, and format your manuscript file for a hassle free upload to KDP. All at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend OJ Modjeska for those who wish to work with an editor who brings multi-faceted energy and skills to the table.

I worked with Obelia Modjeska for over five years at Thomson Reuters Sydney, where I was Senior Editor between 2009-2012 and 2014-2018. During that time, we worked together on the production of legal books, looseleaf volumes and online products. Obelia is an experienced and highly capable editor who pays strict attention to detail and produces work of the highest quality. Her English and grammar skills are impeccable, and she always meets deadlines, no matter how strict. She is able to manage competing priorities and works well with others to achieve personal and team goals. Based on her extensive experience and capabilities, I have no hesitation recommending Obelia for a high-level editorial role.
