Service Description

If you'd like your work not only to look as professional as possible in print or on modern eReaders (Kindle, Nook, iPad, etc.), but also to have the unmistakable just-below-the-surface gleam of skilled editing, then I believe I can help you to achieve that goal. Or if you'd simply like editing by itself, I love to do that. In fact, in addition to eBook conversion for your manuscript, I will do proofreading only, editing only, or any combination. And I try to make sure that the exact level and style of editing reflects your personal goal for that particular document: whether it be formal, academic, business, casual, or conversational -- or even (as is often the case) your own unique personal style. I can usually get a sense of what you have in mind from the manuscript or sample pages you send me, but I still make a point of sending you a quick preliminary sample of a few edited pages so I can benefit from your comments before proceeding, and I enjoy working with someone who is willing to continue that back-and-forth conversation as the job progresses.
