I called Tor/Forge again today, and they said that the Gears are welcome to have me copyedit their texts. They transferred me to the person who hires the freelancers, and I left a message on her voicemail. Hopefully it will all work out!
I'm a freelance copyeditor specializing in fantasy and science fiction. SF/F novels I have copyedited have been finalists for (and have sometimes won) the Hugo, Nebula, Arthur C. Clarke, Endeavour, Golden Spur, John W. Campbell Memorial, Quill, Locus, Philip K. Dick, British Science Fiction, British Fantasy, and World Fantasy awards. In 2007 I became the first and only copyeditor ever short-listed for a World Fantasy Award.
