I can guarantee you that 'mistakes' you see in this manuscript are purposeful, selected for enhancing the narrative voice. His attention to detail and the fact that he knew what 'trickin' is and what a 5%er is kind of threw me for a loop. He and I are at the beginning of a very glorious partnership" --excerpt from "Confessions Of A Cuban Cigar Smoker, Vol. I" "Jason is the man and is not only awesome at the technical side of editing the english language but also understands where I'm coming from as a writer as he is also a writer.

At the risk of sounding like Cordelia from Shakespeare's King Lear, I'm not going to promise the earth, just all the skills and education I can bring to bear. Good editor? I'd like to think I was brilliant...but doesn't everyone on Elance say that? I'm a fussy reader, and therefore I'll go the extra mile to make sure your book's the best it can be. Show me your manuscript, and let's negotiate what I'll do and for how much, from proofreading to substantive.
Making every word count is the most important thing in any editing or writing project. Organization, research, and structure are essential as well, but if the words that form the story don't flow, your manuscript isn't the best it can be. Making every word count is my specialty. Other areas I specialize in include the following: 1. Taking a flat writing style and making it sharp 2. Using proper punctuation to enhance sentence structure 3. Correcting and streamlining grammar 4. Assuring hooks, conflicts, tensions, teasers, and cliffhangers keep readers turning pages 5. Reviewing character consistency and character arc 6. Finding disruptions in rhythm and flow 7. Discovering holes in plots and subplots 8. Eliminating cliches 9. Strengthening dialogue 10. Suggesting creative touches when appropriate (analogies, for example)
