KAS Editing: Karen Schader

For Publishers

If you’re overworked and stressed by deadlines, let me make your job easier. I specialize in content for and about children: picture books, chapter books, and young adult fiction; nonfiction for youth; and informational materials for parents, counselors, educators, and consumers. As a copyeditor, I bring these qualities to every project:

  • Well-honed editorial judgment
  • A cooperative, can-do attitude
  • Promptness
  • Reasonable rates
  • Respect for the author
  • Technical skill

For Authors

Whether you’re interested in traditional publishing or plan to self-publish, if you’ve written a manuscript for children or about children, I can help you polish your work. Each project is unique, so I’ll consult with you to agree on what level of editing is appropriate. Typically, I might check grammar, spelling, and punctuation; look for holes in flow or inconsistencies; make sure that the tone and any dialogue are appropriate for your audience; and offer suggestions where I see the possibility of a different approach. Authors generally find me to be supportive and sensitive to their needs; my technical standards are stringent, but my personal style is gentle.
