Who am I?

My name is Alyssa Matesic, and I’m a professional developmental book editor with nearly a decade of book publishing and editorial experience. Throughout my career, I’ve held editorial roles across both sides of the publishing industry: Big Five publishing houses and literary agencies. I’m passionate about helping writers throughout the book writing journey—whether you're working on your manuscript or you're looking for publishing advice.

I’m so happy to have you here and can’t wait to help you become a better storyteller. You can also find me on YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, and my blog!
