How long has EditorMuse been in business?

EditorMuse is the latest addition to the publishing world, redefining the author-editor relationship. The days of entrusting an editor with your manuscript only to have it returned mangled or changed and bleeding red ink are the past.

Candice Adams Roma--Owner/Editing Director
Candice Adams received her BA in Creative Writing from Dartmouth College  and her MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Notre Dame. While a graduate student at the University of Notre Dame, Candice worked as a tutor at the University Writing Center, helping undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff  become better writers.  After completing her MFA program, Candice worked as a copy editor for the City of Fort Worth and at DHS Literary Agency in Dallas alongside David Hale Smith, the CEO. When Candice moved to Austin, TX, she began working for Newgen-Austin (formerly G&S Book Service) as a Project Editor/Coordinator, overseeing all aspects of book production, from copy editing manuscripts to preparing and shipping final files to printers. In 2007, Candice evaluated manuscripts and advised authors on the publishing industry as a Book Consultant/Acquisitions Editor for Greenleaf Book Group. Most recently, Candice worked for the Texas Legislative Council as an Editor/Proofreader for the 2009 legislative session.

Candice has also worked one-on-one with authors to prepare their work  for publication. Her favorite part of editing is working with an author to bring out the best that a writer can do.
Kathy Clayton--Copyeditor/Proofreader

Kathy’s publishing career began just a few days after graduating from the University of Texas at Austin. With English degree in hand, she worked as an editorial assistant at Harcourt College Publishers. When Kathy moved to a position as a project editor, she discovered the joys of project management, copyediting, and proofreading, and eventually took that joy and experience to Chicago and worked as a project editor for McGraw-Hill. In her free time, Kathy was also able to freelance, taking copyediting and proofreading projects from Harcourt, Triumph Books, and other publishers on a regular basis. Four years of cold weather was enough to bring Kathy back to Texas where she became the managing editor at Texas Tech University Press. Kathy has over a decade of experience, a longing for the written word, and the ability to bring your project to its highest potential.
