    About Paige

    Paige Duke is an editor with Standout Books. She fell in love with stories at an early age in the pages of The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, and A Wrinkle in Time and watching sci-fi shows with her dad. These days, some of her favorite authors are Louise Penny, Sue Miller, Rainbow Rowell, and Daniel Handler. 


    Paige fell into editing by way of a summer publishing internship. After seven years in corporate editing, while freelancing on the side, she transitioned to working with indie authors and publishers full time, and she’s never looked back. To Paige, editing still feels like a dream job—developing stories, polishing prose, and helping authors reach their goals. Her favorite part of this work is experiencing the power of the written word to entertain, inform, and even change the world.

    When she’s not working, Paige enjoys traveling, listening to podcasts, taking her kids to the park, and watching The Office.

    Some of the projects Paige has worked on for Standout Books include:

    Paige was a truly professional editor with microscopic eyes. She finished within the time projected and maintained effective communication throughout the process. I feel 100% more confident in the quality of my manuscript after her review. Also, the staff at Standout Books has been most helpful. They answered my numerous questions completely and honestly. I highly recommend Standout Books and Paige to any indie writers seeking help with their manuscript.

    My editor with Standout Books, Paige, was extraordinarily helpful, supportive, and did a fantastic job. My book came back highly polished, with comments about the content that helped me fill plot holes and suggestions to make it an overall stronger book. Worth every penny and every second I waited to get it back!
