About Made It by Maren

Made It By Maren is a freelance book editing service conducted entirely online in Bountiful, Utah. 

Breaking into the publishing world is daunting, whether you go the traditional route or the self-publishing route. Maren helps new and indie authors bridge the gap between writing and publishing, a gap new authors often fall into because proofreading and editing are not as simple as having your mom read your book (sorry mom).

With a BS in Communication and a minor in English, Maren offers a perspective-shifting and uplifting editing process with a free onboarding meeting and a quick editing turnaround. She also offers a reader's perspective as an avid reader and former librarian, giving you a soundboard to bounce ideas off of.

If you are struggling to get your foot in the door of traditional publishing, or you are a new author whose dream of publishing is threatened by overwhelm, Maren is passionate about running (or walking) with you past the finish line of your creative endeavor.

I can't wait to see your book on my shelf!
