Desi Chapman, Senior Editor



Hello! I’m Desi Chapman, senior editor, specializing in genre fiction for publishers and indie authors. With a decade of fiction editing experience, I’ve helped to refine hundreds of novels. 

I appreciate that each author’s manuscript represents a commitment of time and love of writing. It is your story, and I promise to treat it with respect. My goal is to help you strengthen your writing so you can present a polished work of fiction.

You are welcome to  explore this website for information on types of editing and our editing team.  And please visit our author pages under Authors & Titles to browse some exciting romantic fiction and cozy mystery novels. 

NEWS: Blue Ink Editing now offers full coordinated  editing—from substantive and developmental editing to copyediting and proofreading—with a team of experienced editors.
