About our in-house editor Cate Baum

“Cate did such a fantastic job with my novel! In one month’s time, she returned my manuscript with over 800 corrections that I had missed after pouring over my manuscript more times than I can count. As a pleasant surprise, she even corrected all of my formatting issues — of which there were plenty: Formatting is definitely NOT my strong-suit! “  Randy Eberle,”Gemini”
“Brilliant proofreading/ editing… in EVERY way. Attention was given to the storyline and the grammar. The distinction between British and American particularities were indispensable. Couldn’t be more thrilled. Thanks Cate!!!”  Emilia Rutigliano,”Origin”
