The only thing I love more than a large mocha with soy? Helping writers polish their stories and get published.
I’ve been obsessed with stories since childhood and insisted I’d grow up to be an author. In high school, I actually enjoyed analyzing assigned readings. Once I got to university, I discovered my true calling: editing.
Now, I use my passion and expertise to help writers around the world pursue their writing goals and tell the stories in their hearts.
“Finding Ms. Bauman was a miracle! After working with others that did not share my vision or passion for Science Fiction, she came into my life and changed it for the better. She works with your ideas and allows the creative process to happen with professional guidance and a collaborative approach. Ms. Bauman is kind in her remarks and constructive in her feedback. I couldn’t imagine working with a more caring and intelligent editor––she really knows her stuff! It’s been fun and informative to work with her and I have nothing but respect for her craft.”
“Hannah is simply amazing. Never late, always finishes on schedule, even if you throw her all sorts of problems. She’s great at catching even the little things, and not only does she catch grammatical errors, but suggests rewordings that can reduce passive voice use, and sometimes just little tweaks that make a sentence have so much more impact. At one point I was afraid I couldn’t afford to continue using her, but she’s proven time and again that I can’t afford -not- to use her.”
“I’m the Queen of Typos, I almost feel bad for Hannah, but she always gets the job done. She’s incredibly fast, and super accurate. She’ll fix your typos, clean up the grammar, root out style inconsistencies, and fix awkward phrases. If you aren’t working with her already, you should be. Hannah will polish your work and put the finishing touches on it so that your message takes center stage.”
I’d become blinded by immersion into my own story. I sent the revised draft to Hannah for a Manuscript Critique—and happy I did. She’s a professional and sent me a report of her impressions along with my file highlighted with suggestions. She stayed in contact with me and continues to answer questions. Whoever said writing a novel is hard work, wasn’t lying. To have someone with Hannah’s experience guide you through the process, is invaluable to a writer at any level, but especially novice writers.
As a non-native speaker, I always struggle with writing in English. Hannah helped me A LOT with proofreading materials for my business. She corrected my email templates and random pieces of text that I use on the site. Some parts she had to re-write completely to make them clear for native speakers and she managed to keep my voice. I am fully satisfied with her service and recommend it to anybody who needs help editing materials. The work was done very quickly, way before the deadline. The communication has been very quick and easy, I got answers to all my questions. Hannah even gave me some advice on how to improve my text. Totally recommended, Hannah knows her stuff!
Hannah has been a pleasure to work with! She is not only your editor, but your friend! I love that we clicked right from the start, helping me to bring down my defensive walls and really work on my book synopsis so that it is the best that it can be before I send it off to prospective literary agents. Hannah helped me define my tense in regards to a synopsis and strengthen my syntax for ease of reading. Hannah is always there to answer any questions you might have and works to create a unique support group with her clients. That level of interaction makes you feel special in a day and age where the internet can feel like a barrier to personal relationships.
Working with Between the Lines Editorial was such a pleasure as Hannah was extremely professional, friendly, timely, and flexible. I was amazed at how quickly she was able to edit the articles I sent to her and I found her recommendations to be very adequate and thorough. Hannah has an eye for detail and wonderful communication skills. She stayed in close contact with me, so she was able to respond swiftly whenever I had questions for her. I am also impressed with how well she was able to edit papers from non-native English speakers, which focused on various complex topics. I would definitely seek Hannah’s expertise again in the future and I am sure that others who seek her editorial skills for their projects will find working with her to be a delight!
I hired Hannah to do a critique for one of my books and couldn’t be more pleased with her professionalism, thoroughness and amazing personality. Her criticisms were helpful, and her suggestions made the book a much better version of itself. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an editor.
