Service Description

1. ACADEMIC WRITING

Sometimes, it's difficult to get your thoughts down on to paper the way you want to. I enjoy helping both students and experienced academics to transform mediocre written work into high-quality (publishable) writing. It's always a good idea to get someone else to give you feedback on your writing, but an expert pair of eyes is a bonus. Whether you're having major problems with written English, or minor frustrations with grammatical and spelling errors, send on your work and I'll turn it into a top-notch piece. I have lots of experience in proofreading and editing almost every type of academic document, including:-

Essays
Laboratory Reports
Masters Theses
PhD Theses
Journal Articles
Research Proposals

2. eBOOKS, ARTICLES, BLOGS

An eBook should be no less factually correct that an academic article; unfortunately, though, too much of what's out there on the general market is giving uninformed advice based on little more than folk-wisdom. If you're trying to make money from selling self-help books, the reader will only be likely to give a good review, and buy your next book, if it has actually helped them! Advice is only going to be helpful if it is based on hard (scientific) evidence. This doesn't mean it has to be boring(!) - it can still be very engaging and interesting. Some of my work samples in my portfolio give some examples of eBooks, articles, and press releases that I have written.
