My name is Crystal Watanabe, and I am a freelance editor and professional beta reader located in Honolulu, Hawaii. I started my editing business in 2014, and have since edited over 145 short stories and 70 novels, 40 novellas, and anthologies, including four Future Chronicles anthologies. While most of my experience is in science fiction and fantasy, I will happily work on any genre.
A one-time beta reader of best-selling author Hugh Howey and lifelong lover of books, I am thrilled to finally be doing what I have always meant to be doing—helping bring books and stories to the world. Happy clients have praised my sharp eye and critical thinking skills, but most of them will likely tell you that they simply enjoy working with me.
As an editor, it's my job to help you bring your story to your readers, and with my various editing services, I help authors refine their voice, smooth out their writing, and polish their work to be something they can be truly proud to present to readers and/or agents and publishers. Contact me today to see if I'd be a good fit for you.
Services available include developmental editing, line editing, beta reading, proofreading, and formatting. Complimentary 2-page sample edits are available.
