I’m Christine Bode, the founder of Bodacious Copy, a one-stop shop for all your copyediting, proofreading, book reviewing, and Twitter marketing needs. I am a copy editor, proofreader, book reviewer, Twitter marketer, published poet and empath. My best qualities are kindness, patience and listening.  

My love of language has always influenced me. A voracious reader since the age of five, I have read almost 1,000 books. I read—every day—and am hyper-aware of what first-class copy is. In addition, I wrote a novella when I was fourteen and had my first poem published in 16 Magazine and Scholastic’s Rock’s Biggest Ten. I also published two volumes of poetry titled Eden Refugee and Eden Redefined and have worked as a freelance copy editor and proofreader since 2008.

Since 2012, I’ve been the senior copy editor for Publish and Promote, which helps first-time and self-published authors realize their book publishing and marketing goals. 

For many years I authored book reviews for Simon & Schuster Canada and HarperCollins Canada, and you can read my latest reviews here on My Bodacious Blog. I also wrote reviews and articles for various online entertainment magazines and worked for fourteen years as a social media manager and marketer, primarily for authors and musicians. So, I understand how to create impact through written communication to engage audiences, and I ensure each project receives my best effort.
