Rachel Simmonds, author of the newly released Parenting Teens in a Digital World, and I collaborated on her work back in September. I copyedited this informative, concise handbook for Rachel and was impressed with her knowledge and strong beliefs in how to introduce children to various technologies and manage them in their teen years.
Rachel is a teacher and parent who brings real-life experience to her topic. She is also a dream author to work with. I wish her well in getting this book into the hands of parents who need her wisdom!
I recently finished a flurry of projects. While most of them were excellent academic works or health articles, I had the joy of proofreading a trade book on parenting a few weeks ago: The New Mom’s Guide to New Dads by Andrew Shaw.
Andrew found me on Reedsy, a freelance site I began collaborating with last year. His instructional book for new moms (and dads) is both humorous and insightful. My kids are now far removed from the baby phase, but many of his anecdotes reminded me of those crazy first years of parenting. Andrew is a dad blogger who is doing an excellent job at creating awareness of what a dad experiences when he welcomes a child. (He is also very quick to point out the demands of motherhood, too.)
Andrew left me some complimentary feedback after I proofread his project:
Natalie was prompt and thorough in her proofreading. She worked within my deadline and made it easy to collaborate!
It was equally rewarding to work with you, Andrew.
This book is available on Kindle.
