Meet The Artful Editor crew.

How we work: When you send us your manuscript, we'll assess the editing service it needs, then assign it to an editor.* Our team includes developmental editors, line editors, copyeditors, proofreaders, book coaches, and ghostwriters. If your book would benefit from several rounds of editing, each round would be done by a different editor. We've learned from our years of experience in publishing that this "team approach" ensures the highest quality book possible.

*If there's a particular editor you'd like to work with, let us know and we'll try to arrange it.

Jackson Palmer

editorial manager

Jackson is the author of The Meek and The Monster, the first two books in a dystopian trilogy. He studied drama, acting, and playwriting at the University of Montana before moving to Los Angeles almost ten years ago. Since then he has pursued an acting career as well as penned his first novels, various screenplays, and short stories. An avid reader, science-fiction and fantasy usually find their way to the top of the mounting book pile next to his bed. Growing up in northwest Montana, Jackson prefers to be outside, whether it be camping, hiking, or playing in the rain. He is a cutthroat Scrabble player and throws axes to combat writer’s block.
