Christine Bode, the owner of Bodacious Copy, is simply amazing! She was of immense help in editing my book proposal. Her attention to detail, flexibility and expediency were impressive and contributed to a thoroughly polished final version. I highly recommend Christine and her company for editing services.
Christine was on a team that helped me write and publish my first book. I wrote this book under a pen name. Christine helped to ensure I kept the story in line, and her edits were outstanding. Christine is an amazing resource when you are trying to bring your voice to your writing and ensure it is a piece of work you are proud of.

As any author can tell you, your manuscript is like your child. It’s a part of you, and you would never knowingly hand it off to someone who would potentially do it harm. When you leave your child in the care of someone, you expect them to return showered, fed, and cared for—if your eight-year-old comes back with a pink Mohawk and tattoos, however, you know to never trust that person again. This is the struggle we as authors must face when picking an editor, finding someone who will accentuate the unique voice we have instead of conforming it to a rigid and familiar structure.
This is what Christine does with a golden touch; she works hard to make your work as perfect as it can be without masking the uniqueness that every author individually holds. She did me the honor of editing my debut novel, Allegory of the End, and blew my expectations of the type of relationship a writer can have with their editor. I had searched high and low for a person I felt comfortable enough to edit my work with since it was my first novel, and admittedly I stepped up to the plate with a lot of trepidation, but Christine calmed my nerves with ease. She was as proud of and dedicated to editing my work as I was when writing it, and she will undoubtedly be the editor I turn to in the future.
If you’re looking for an editor, your search should start and end with Christine Bode. She’s the editor I’ll be using for all my future works and the same person I’d recommend to any of my friends or peers.
Allegory of the End: Volume 1 (Death of the Order)
Your book is as great as the editorial talents you hire to ensure your story is clear, concise, and captivating. I had the PERFECT editor, Christine Bode of Bodacious Copy, work on my autobiography, UNVEILED. I was ecstatic when my book ranked #2 and #3 in two categories in June 2021, just a few weeks after publishing it. Thank you, Christine, for exceeding my expectations.

Before you publish a document or book, copyediting is required.
By definition, copyediting is the process of revising written material to improve readability and fitness and ensuring that the text is free of grammatical, typographical, continuity, and factual errors.
Christine Bode of Bodacious Copy is a written material fitness guru.
Her sharp eye is punctuated with detail, enhanced by her listening to writing. She accesses the soul and spirit of your words and emphasizes them with uncommon magic. Christine’s talent evolved through decades of experience, but especially and most significantly through her heart. She connects with the writer’s heart and to their heart of the matter—logically and strategically—and always with the writer in mind. It is not her job to change the writer’s voice; it is her passion to enhance it. And she does.
So, before you publish, send Christine an email that will result in a conversation. You’ll be happy that you did and will be in alignment with someone who cares about your words.

Christine Bode was recommended to me by Dawn James of Publish and Promote. I met Christine over Zoom, and she was very charming and patient. She helped me with some social media marketing, proofreading, and making the final corrections to my autobiography, UPHILL CLIMB. In speaking with her, I could tell she lives and breathes her work, and during the final edit of my book, she gave me some great ideas that completed the look and feel of it, including the suggestion of adding photos.
I thank Christine for her invaluable input. I would highly recommend her and would love to have her expertise if I decide to write another book.

Christine has a great command of English grammar and spelling (very important), an upbeat, positive manner, and a chameleon-like way of speaking on my behalf, consulting me when necessary. She also puts a lot of herself into what she does, and there is a feeling that she cares and sees the importance of her clients’ success in creating her own success. It is not easy to find someone like Christine, and I would recommend her services to anyone who depends on social media for their business but perhaps lacks the time or skills to maximize their potential.
