About Black Cat Edits

Thank you so much for visiting my Patreon and joining my exclusive membership community of fellow authors who believe in my vision of having affordable editing for all self-published fiction authors. I'm so excited you found us!

I set up this Patreon page for you. I'll be covering editing, personal branding, and marketing as they specifically relate to your journey as an independently published author.

Hi, dear author, I'm Cayleigh Stickler.

I'm a line and copy editor, brand strategist, and marketing coach for fiction authors. I'm also an indie author, an adventurer, and a single mom of two awesome kiddos.
Why Black Cat Edits?

I finally decided on a business name the day I got that dreaded call no cat owner ever wants to get. I was in another state, in the process of moving, and the pet hospital called at night informing someone brought in Zen after he was ran over. In an instant, Baby Zen became Master Zen, and Black Cat Edits was born as a homage to Zen and all my other black kitties.

So, what do I do?

I help authors just like you
  • edit their books
  • build a personal brand to grow a fan base
  • learn valuable marketing skills to sell more

My vision and intention is to provide
low-cost (and free) value to patrons and fans who are genuinely interested in learning more about how they can boost their writing career to reach new levels. I care about each one of you and want to give as much personalized and one-on-one support as I can.

Are you a fiction author living on a budget and hoping to make it by self-publishing?

I invite you to become the newest member of our private community to learn practical and actionable tips to kick-start your professional writing career in a fun way.
