?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.

Professional copyediting and proofreading

I'm a dyed-in-the-wool, honest-to-goodness copy editor. I don't use copy editing software; I use spell check as a backup only, and I don't use grammar check because it's wrong so often. Real copy editors deliver meticulous, knowledgeable line and substantive editing; know grammar, spelling, punctuation and syntax; and have broad general knowledge. As a lifelong copy editor I can line edit, substantively edit (up to and including rewriting) and critique all kinds of writing from advertising to novels. I'm doggedly thorough; some would say persnickety. That's because I care. One of my clients said, "Linnea is a fabulous editor. She is by far one the best I have worked with. She surpassed all my expectations in editing my articles and delivered more than I asked for." I can do the same for you. So why not use the copy editor writers turn to?

Expert Editor and Proofreader

*Ranked in the top 0.25% of all Writing & Translation freelancers* Every detail, from the way you describe the color blue to whether you use a semicolon or a period to break up a thought, affects the way a piece of writing is absorbed by the reader. Whether you've just finished your first rough draft and can sense that something is "off," but you aren't sure what, or you just need help polishing up your grammar before submitting to an agent, I'm here to help. I'm an experienced editor who has done proofreading, line editing, and developmental editing on published work. I do freelance writing and editing as a full-time career, which means that I have exceptionally fast turnaround times for impeccable work; I don't miss dealines. Ever. I've worked with many different manuscript types, including novels, novellas, self-help books, business how-to guides, and more. However, when it comes to developmental editing and in-depth line editing, I am most experienced with fiction work.

I have had 7 books published by small press houses, as well as short stories and plays. I have written book reviews for my site (as many as 5 per every 7 day cycle at one point), and I have been editing and aiding others in rewriting their works since I was 15.

Writing, editing services and publishing

25+ years of writing, editing in the publishing industry; careful, considered, and collaborative editing. I'll help you tell your story well. My editing and writing background has been focused in business, finance, health, politics/government and communications. The bulk of my work has come in the non-fiction realm, but I have written fiction and worked with fiction writers on story development, and basic storytelling. In my view, proofing is the same for both types of writing: The focus of the read is on the words, the sentence structure and the consistency. If you let too much else into your thought process in proofing, you are likely to miss what you're there for. I have a good eye for print design and can handle most layout tasks, and have taken just about anything I've produced to digital platforms including desktop, mobile and tablet sites, to ePub and Kindle and PDF. That said, I am not an artist. I reach for expertise when that gets the job done best.
