I am Canadian raised and American educated and divide my time between the two countries.
I enjoy editing all kinds of writing. I especially like working with first-time writers. I guess old teachers never retire! I gain energy from their enthusiasm. I like to provide encouragement and help to them as others did for me....

I provide free estimates, reasonable rates, customer satisfaction and fast turnaround time.
I edit using Word 2010 Word Track. This program will accommodate Word 1997 and more recent versions.
I edit three times. The first edit is for an overview, checking unity, coherence, consistency in plot and characterization and setting.
The second edit examines grammar/spelling/punctuation/paragraphing/capitalization.
My final edit is done by an independent reader to catch errors I overlooked because we read what we thought was there, particularly after two read-throughs!
When I return your edited manuscript to you, I will send you a copy with the edits visible and a final clean copy with no edits and comments visible. My turnaround time is very quick and I guarantee accuracy.
If you do not want to receive edited copy showing the marks, I can merely send you the clean copy. The choice is yours.
Although I am relatively new to Elance.com, I have extensive editing experience with other groups and individuals. I have had excellent feedback from my Elance clients, which I encourage you to view. Word of mouth is the best advertising! References are also available on request.
I don't send attached work examples unless they are requested. I prefer to edit a sample of your work so you can see that we'd make a great writing/revising team.
