Hello there!

My name is Amma, and I'm the owner of Amma Edits, LLC.

 

Besides being an accomplished book editor for the last 15 years, I've also written several soon-to-be-published novels, so I understand what it means to put your heart into drafting a book. I also understand the fear and uncertainty that comes with preparing to trust that work to an editor. Will they change my story? Will I like their changes? Will they understand my story and what my story means to me? Will we work well together?

 

My goal, as your editor, is to help you answer these questions while bringing out the best in your story. I've been known to take the roughest drafts and turn them into polished, beautiful stories.

How It All Began

The Short Story...

2008

Served as editor-in-chief and publisher of a successful online magazine. 

2012

Worked on my first book editing project which led to landing more and more projects.

2014

The Brielle Agency becomes a registered business and ceases to be a side hustle.

The Long Story...

Get to Know Me

I got my start as an editor in October 2008, as the publisher and editor-in-chief of an online magazine called AFRIKAN GODDESS MAGAZINE.

 
The magazine, which highlighted the achievements of African women humanitarians across the world, was one of the first few publications of its kind. 
 
During my time as the publisher of AFRKAN GODDESS MAGAZINE, I profiled trendsetting women such as Mariama Mounir Camara-Petrolawicz, co-founder and president of There is No Limit Foundation; MacDella Cooper, founder of MacDella Cooper Foundation and 2017 presidential candidate of Liberia; Noella Coursaris Musunka, model and Founder of Malaika Foundation; and several others.
I ran the magazine successfully for 5 years, managing a team of writers. 
In addition to the magazine, I also worked full-time as a corporate paralegal and research editor in Washington, DC. 
 
I also served as a staff editor for OnPoint Newsletter, a publication of the National Capital Area Paralegal Association.
In 2012, I edited my first book project. That project led to more projects. 
 
In October 2013, I moved to Georgia thinking I was going to easily find work as a corporate paralegal.
That didn't happen...
So I turned to the one thing I knew how to do best ... and turned what was once a side hustle into a full-time business.
By January 2014, I had thrown myself fully into my new role as a freelance book editor. 
The rest...as they say...is history!
My combined experience as an editor, publisher, legal professional, and storyteller has been beneficial to my clients because I bring a diverse set of skills to each project. When you choose Amma Edits, you will work directly with me as your editor. I offer personal one-on-one service and dedicate my time and efforts to ensuring that your story is exactly what you've envisioned it to be. If this is what you've been looking for, then you're in the right place, and I look forward to helping you tell your story.
