THE STORY ENGINEER
TAKING THE PAIN OUT OF PUBLISHING
Hi! I’m Candice Bellows, the Story Engineer. I help serious independent authors write, edit, and self-publish career-building books.
I’ve worked in publishing since my junior year of college. I’ve edited everything from academic-journal articles to fantasy novels to guides for parents and teachers of young children. Most of my experience is in nonfiction, but fiction is my true love.
Along with being an editor, I’m a writer. I self-published my first book, The Year-Round Pillow Cover, in June 2020. I also contributed the chapter “Editing” to Indie Writing Wisdom (December 2020).
Check out the sections below to see how I can help you create the book of your dreams!
