Australian eBook Publisher Editors

Amanda Greenslade

Bio
Amanda is a writer, editor and graphic designer with small business experience and a love of books. She has a Bachelor of Communications majoring in Writing and Screen Production, and has been involved in design and publishing since 2004.

She approaches her editing jobs with both a big picture perspective and a fine-toothed comb, using her knack with words and her nous with cohesion to help writers produce their finest work. She loves children, animals, books, science and technology, so it is only fitting that she has two busy boys, three capering cats and manages Australian eBook Publisher.

Feedback about Amanda

"Thank you for your really detailed and insightful response. There is a lot to absorb and a great deal of thinking for me to do. I appreciate your directness in pointing out all of the faults in the story. Also you gave some interesting plot lines to follow. Thanks again for a good whacking. As I said, I need to do a lot of thinking. I'll give it to you, you're good."—A.C.
