Tell us a bit about yourself.
Hello everyone. My name is Michelle Hoffman and I'm the owner of Michelle's Edits. I'm a stay at home freelance editor and author who loves 80s rock, classic rock, and my fur babies.

I have a Facebook page for my editing service. Here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/Michellesedits
3. How did you get started with editing?
During the final years of my mother's life, I was her primary caretaker 24/7, which meant I was mostly homebound with her. Being an avid reader, I would look for any free books I could get my hands on. This led to me also acting as a beta reader for different authors. Author Emma Alisyn sent me an email back after I sent her my suggestions and told me that I wasn't just beta reading, I was line editing and it was a paid job. She helped me get started with word of mouth and set up a website which I never use.
4. What are your goals for 2022?
I would love to expand the editing business to bring in reliable income and when I'm not editing, I wish to be writing or reading. My best tip for someone new to hiring editors is to not wait until the last minute to have a document edited before it needs to be published. Some editors have bookings that go out for months.
