As a Technical Editor, I not only check for inconsistencies and factual errors in the technical content of a book, I also provide insight and help the authors tweak their lessons and text. I have a unique position of having worked with many different authors through the years and can quickly identify their style and help with any queries. Sometimes, it’s as simple as confirming keyboard shortcuts for obscure Photoshop tools and other times a lesson may be riddled with errors and in need of an “eagle eye” to pinpoint where it went wrong.

Authors have all different kinds of backgrounds, some are professors while others are professionals in the industry. To the right are a collection of higher-education titles I have been worked on recently for Course Technology, a division of Cengage Learning.

My job ensures a high-quality product.

My career as a Tech Editor, although primarily behind the scenes and not exactly glamorous, gives me a good feeling at the end of the day. I’m happy that the product/book that I worked diligently on (one that will be required for classes in colleges and universities across the country) will help others learn about the industry I am so passionate about. These books, because of the work of a Tech Editor with the team, will be more accurate and more complete than they would have without my help. I’m thankful they help me too. I learn everyday.  I’m also available for hire, freelance or contract.
