Karen Newton

I am a proven content management professional with over 28 years in the book and digital publishing industries. My experience includes copyediting, interior page design, book formatting, print production, and website maintenance. I am adept in correcting spelling, punctuation, and grammar errors; offering suggestions to clarify text; and ensuring consistency in style and layout.

My interior page design and book formatting experience includes selecting and setting trim size; incorporating proper margins; creating headers and footers with page numbers; formatting text, chapter titles, and headings/subheadings; typesetting complex equations; producing tables; importing images and graphics; correcting widows and orphans; copyediting; implementing design elements; generating tables of contents and indexes; placing footnotes and endnotes; adding front matter and back matter (title page, copyright page, dedication, about the author); and generating EPUBs for ebooks.

Publishing a book does not stop with editing and formatting! I guide authors through the next steps, from obtaining ISBNs and barcodes to navigating the choices for uploading their manuscripts for publishing.

I look forward to applying my background, experience, and critical eye to your manuscript!
