Professional copyeditor and proofreader

?Donna is amazing. She has a full grasp of the English language and grammar -- all the intricacies -- and understood and respected my "voice" immediately ? She locked into the characters and could actually "hear" them, their somewhat complex dialect, as I hear them. I have nothing but the highest praise for her.? ? faith_mayo_5 As an experienced proofreader and editor, I strive to make every manuscript, document or essay the best that it possibly can be. I have a thorough grasp and understanding of English-language usage, grammar and punctuation; but it takes more than that to be an effective editor. It takes intuition borne of experience to know when an author has overlooked a misstep, or if they have purposely strayed from the ?rules? for effect. To that end, I never rely on software to find misspellings or lapses in grammar. I read each and every word with a keen eye and meticulous attention to detail.

Nowadays, I'm a professional editor, publisher, copy editor and writer, with over 17 years of experience, and now own and operate a small publishing house in California. I've worked in fiction, nonfiction, insurance editing and medical editing fields, and know everything there is to know about the written language. I can guarantee you a quick, professional job, with the creativity and attention to detail you need in the editing world. Your paper, manuscript, copy or idea will come to fruition when and how you want it to, and I always guarantee a free revision. I thrive on deadlines and I always aim to please.

Lead Curriculum Editor for Grand Canyon University

?Wayne did an amazing job editing my Fantasy novel. He gave me two extra rounds of edits to work on some plot issues, and by the end had helped sculpt it into a much stronger book. Not only was he thorough, he was respectful of my writing, and only made suggestions that improved. At no time did he insert his own voice into the work, which was important to me. I have already recommended him to a colleague who is finishing up his novel, and will be working with Wayne again as soon as I get the next book ready for editing.? ? Amanda E. Orneck, author of "Shadow of the Owl." ?Wayne did an extremely professional job and communicated exceptionally well. I would definitely hire him again and I highly recommend his services!? ? Rainbow480 "Wayne Purdin is what every editor/proofreader should aspire to be: intelligent, punctual, and affordable. He made my novel 10X better in half the time I allotted him." -- Evan DeCarlo, author of Children of the Noah.
