Get edited. Get published. Get reviewed.

Hey! My name is Tissie and I am a writer, a translator, and an editor. I’ve been working with beginners and published authors for 20+ years. I pride myself to be an objective assessor, meaning I don’t let my personal tastes interfere with my editing. My goal is to help you and get you one step closer to publishing. I will take care of your book as if it was my own.

Free Book Audit

Are you a beginner or not sure what editing service you need? Let me do a free book audit for you and guide you further.  I’ll read the first chapter and then give you an assessment about the kind of work it’d need.

What the clients say

Kathleen Osborne

‘Bookshelves and Teacups did a marvelous job doing the copy editing for our Anthology – Autumn, a Season. There were 20 stories and ten authors. The stories were from horror to romance to fantasy. Some were long short stories (80k) some were short (500k). And with the manuscript being so long it took them a minimal amount of time to go through it.I would definitely recommend them for any genre.’

Jannat Noor


“Tissie beta read my contemporary romance manuscript. With a quick turnaround, she pointed out what was working and what needed improvements in a clear, constructive manner. She also corrected grammar usage, syntax and sentence structure. Her feedback will help me with my next round of revisions!”

Tom Adamson


‘Tissie is a fantastic beta reader with amazing attention to detail. She asked questions that not only strengthened the plot, but also improved the depth of the characters. She has a good eye for punctuation and layout. I cannot recommend her enough!’
