Publishing Services for Book Creators

Kendra Martin
I’m all about turning Canadian stories into books.

I’ve worked in book publishing for the past ten years, working with Canadian-owned publishers in marketing, publicity and production. I also work with clients to finesse their books for publication, including copy editing, proofreading, and typesetting (essentially, designing a book’s interior pages).

Though I work in a venerated industry, I’m fascinated by technology; I love to embrace new digital strategies to streamline and innovate how we make and sell the precious cultural object we call a book.

I offer publishing services to freelance clients. Ask me about how I can help you today.

Publishing Services

Let’s make some books

Whether you are looking for a freelance editor to check the grammar and flow of text or for a clean, attractive page layout for your book, or an innovative, digital approach to marketing books, I’ve got you covered.

Copy Editing and Proofreading

Ask me about editing your next book, article, or newsletter. I am particularly experienced with copy editing non-fiction, young adult fiction, cookbooks, and news articles.

Book Marketing

Ask me about strategies for turning browsers into readers of your book with my dynamic promotion toolkit, developed over six years of marketing books inside publishing houses.

Website Content and Design

Ask me about souping up your online presence with a Wordpress website or custom content to draw an audience.

    “In a way, editing is not unlike the movies. The best books, just like the best movies, are a collaboration. They’re only as good as the compromise made between the artists involved.”
