Below is a selection of published work that I have edited. I also work with authors who are looking for publication, authors who are keen to improve their writing skills, and students looking to perfect their dissertations.
PUBLISHED AND FORTHCOMING – AS DEVELOPMENTAL EDITOR
Collabor(h)ate by Deb Mashek
To be found in a number of Bestseller lists, this was a joy to work on. Deb wrote to me:
First, thank you SO much for your incredibly helpful developmental edit of Collabor(h)ate. I was blown away by the generosity and wisdom of every single suggestion. What a gift to have this thing I care about benefit from your expertise and grace. Seriously, I cannot remember the last time I felt such partnership and support in working through something I wrote. You’re my new favorite security blanket 😊 Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
PUBLISHED AND FORTHCOMING – AS COPY-EDITOR
Coping: A Philosophical Guide by Luc Bovens
It was a joy to work on this book. Luc said:
I had the good fortune to work with Alison Gray for my book Coping: A Philosophical Guide that is coming out with Open Book Publishers. Alison’s comments were superb. She made helpful suggestions when a passage was unclear, improved my prose, checked sources, corrected quotations, and raised concerns about copyright issues. She has a keen sense for the English language, and her suggestions really made the book so much better. I was able to follow up on some issues with her and again she was super-helpful. And she is a pleasure to work with. She is clearly the best editor whom I have worked with in my career.
I ALSO COPY-EDIT THE FOLLOWING JOURNALS.
