Copywriting & Editing Services

So, you’re looking for an editor…

If you’re looking for writing or editing help, stick around. Before I tell you about me, there are a few things you should know:

  • I do provide sample edits and free consultations
  • I do offer payment plans and other ways to reduce fees if you’re on a tight budget.
  • I do offer rush service if requested in advance.
  • I do accept LGBTQI, ethnic/urban, and highly sensitive projects
  • I do reject obscene and hateful material
  • I don’t offer beta reading
  • I don’t ghostwrite books
  • I don’t design book covers or do printing
  • I don’t write essays

That’s covered. Now, about me…

My name is Kim-Lee Patterson, and I am the author of five books (Snowing Lava, Nectar of Gods, The Last Time We Fell Apart, From Pit to Palace, and Escaping Reality). I am also an editor (since 2011) and am pursuing a bachelors degree in Communication Studies at York University.

Previously, I earned diplomas in Accounting & Payroll and in Web Design from two Canadian college institutions and a certificate in Organizational Behavior from Edinburgh Business School.

I founded my company, Your Writing Lady, in 2014 after freelancing as an editor for 3 years (starting with my first paid project in 2011, at the age of 17). Since then, I have edited nearly 40 books, over 300 resumes, and countless other documents operating part-time during the past 8 years.

Writing is my #1 passion, but I also enjoy many arts and crafts such as crochet, painting, and graphic design, and some of the pseudosciences including astrology, reflexology, and the MBTI.

So, now that we’ve covered my background and experience, let’s move on to how I can make your day!
