Overview

Pen & Pestle has been in business since August 2009. I provide quality editing, proofreading, ghostwriting and copywriting for clients all over the world. My clients include published and self-published authors.

My credentials are impeccable. I do pre- and post-contract editing for authors engaged by MacMillan, Palgrave and MIT Press, to name a few. I also provide editing for scholarly journal articles. I work with printer's guidelines in format and layout of both published and self-published works.
