Service Description

I offer careful and thorough editing of book manuscripts. I will point out grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors; help you rewrite awkward or unclear sentences; point out areas where there is inconsistency in the plot or character development or where things might be confusing to your readers; and make sure your manuscript is stylistically consistent, and I'll do it all with a smile. No cranky editor here!

I hold a copyediting certificate from the University of California at San Diego and have received additional training from the Editorial Freelancers Association and Mediabistro.
