Service Description

I am especially skilled at rewriting - I say what you say, just in different words. I never use any special software or spinners, all my work is truly original and I have never had anything fail to pass copyscape.l.
I can write in the style you prefer, but my personal style is conversational and at times a bit 'tongue in cheek'.
My Australian husband (one published novel to his credit) works with me on proofing and editing work when needed. We bring two sets of eyes to everything to make sure you get error free, professional copy.
I am detail oriented, committed to my clients satisfaction, timeliness, and professionalism.
My rates are reasonable and I always give a fair days work in exchange for a fair days wage. I am always willing to go the extra mile for my clients and I never consider a job finished until my client is not only satisfied, but pleased.
I only bid on jobs I feel confident about, and I would appreciate your honest consideration.
