Hi, I’m Sheri!
Welcome to Magic Forest Proofreading. You’ve found the place to put the final polish on your literary work.
If you’ve ever written anything for publication—even if it’s just a social media post—you know how easy it is to let little mistakes slip through.
I’m a certified graduate of Proofread Anywhere, which means I have completed extensive training to help me spot those little mistakes that any author can miss. I’ve always loved words and all that goes with them, and I would love to help you make yours shine.
I’m also an author whose flash fiction has been published in multiple magazines, both in print and online. I’ve written three full-length YA fantasy novels and am in the process of publication. I specialize in proofing speculative flash fiction, but also have experience with novellas and novels of all genres.
Working on traditional publication? As an author who has queried dozens of agents, I can help you make sure your proposal, query, and cover letter is as professional as possible. The first page may be all an agent or publisher will read–believe me, I know it counts.
I also have experience in these areas:
- Short fiction, novellas, and novels of all genres
- Queries and proposals
- Social media posts
- Website texts
- Billboard texts
- Audio scripts

Sheri is very prompt and reaches the deadlines she is working with. She is passionate about her work and I immediately felt that working with her. I highly recommend having Sheri edit your book!

A copyedit makes sure your text flows in a clear way that matches your voice. I’ll look more deeply at your sentence structure, word choices, and suggest more ways to make it clearer. This step comes first, and the proofread makes sure all the changes have been implemented correctly.

If you’re just starting the querying process, learning how to craft an irresistible query can feel impossible on your own. Believe me, I’ve tried! Even if you’re a query veteran and find yourself in a rut, another pair of critical eyes can give you the fresh start you need. With dozens of queries under my belt and experience having my own queries critiqued by professional editors and authors, I truly enjoy helping writers with this step in the process.
