Book Editing and Proofreading Services

Noel Editorial is staffed by Chris and Susannah Noel, siblings whose book editing and proofreading services take authors from rough draft to polished manuscript.

Chris taught in the MFA in Writing program at Vermont College of Fine Arts from 1990 to 2010 and now performs manuscript edits for independent authors. He is a published author with Random House and Alfred A. Knopf and has self-published several titles.

Susannah has proofread and copyedited trade fiction and nonfiction since 1995. She freelances for Macmillan, Penguin Random House, and independent authors.
