Service Description

Writing:

I have experience writing in a variety of forms:

• Feature articles
• Filler/SEO articles for ad and affiliate-driven content
• Book reviews
• Blog posts
• Press releases and backgrounders

My specialty is publishing, but I have written articles on everything from sports to education to entertainment.

Whether I'm writing or editing, I pride myself on delivering exactly what the client is after in terms of subject, tone, and approach, something that blends in seamlessly with their brand and voice.


Editing

I offer freelance editing and proofreading services. In the past I have done everything from simple proofreading and line edits to high-level nonfiction editing.

My services include:
• “Quick look-overs” of marketing and PR copy
• Copy editing and proofreading online content—websites, eZines, eBooks, etc.
• Copy editing and proofreading of print materials, particularly books.
• High-level editing (content editing) of books.

My specialties are education and self-empowerment: I have proofread, copy-edited, or done content editing on over a dozen books and ebooks in those two fields, from “professional books” for teachers in the classroom to ebooks on how to live your best life. Again, my chief goal is to make sure the author’s voice comes through with no distractions.
