Service Description

I can ensure that your book, article or webpage is free of all grammatical mistakes and that the language used is easy to read and understand. I will be on the lookout for sentences that are ambiguous, difficult to understand or just awkwardly worded and can change them so that they read much better.

I can also be on the lookout for areas that might need more work. I can identify areas that might need more information or need to be a bit clearer so that your readers understand your point.

For fiction manuscripts, I can also give you suggestions on how to approach any areas that I feel may need some work. I can let you know if a specific scene doesn't seem to fit with the overall story and how to correct it. I can help identify plot holes or weak story lines and even give suggestions on how the problems can be fixed. I will keep a style sheet to help ensure that names, descriptions and places do not change in order to ensure complete consistency throughout the novel. I can do all of this and still ensure that your story retains your "voice" and writing style.

If the manuscript is a Word document, I can use the track changes function so you will be able to see where I have made changes. I can also leave a number of comments to explain my changes or to flag an area that may need some work.
