Overview

Greetings! For twenty-five years I have been a professional editor and proofreader. In addition to six in-house years with a publisher, I have almost twenty years of freelance experience and have worked with companies and writers all over the world. I edit and proofread fiction (all genres, children's, YA, and adult) and nonfiction (educational materials, business books, and self-help books). I edit MS Word documents (using track changes), PDF files (using Adobe's highlight/comment function), and hard copies (using the old-fashioned red...

Service Description

Thank you for viewing my profile. (Please see the last paragraph to see if you qualify for my $75 final look service.)

For twenty-five years I have been editing and proofreading fiction and nonfiction, as well as articles, brochures, Web copy, and marketing materials. I am familiar with the major style manuals including the Chicago Manual and the AP guide. I also adapt quickly to individual house styles, so if you have any quirky grammar or spelling rules to follow, I'm the editor for you. Please contact me for references and/or for a copy of my resume.

My editorial experience runs the gamut and includes fiction (all genres, children's, YA, and adult) and nonfiction, including educational materials, business books, and self-help books. I use Track Changes to edit Word documents onscreen and Comments/Notes to edit PDF files onscreen. If required, I'll also edit on hard copy. Detail- and deadline-oriented editor and proofreader; easy to work with. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.

New $75 service for fiction and nonfiction book publishers and authors! If your book has been previously copy edited and proofed, I offer a $75 final look to catch any lingering grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors. NOTE: This service is for books that have at most 50 errors; I'm talking very clean. When inviting me to bid, please mention this, and, UPON APPROVAL, I'll bid $75 (three-day turnaround) for books up to 100,000 words that have already been edited/proofed...
