"When I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will stay split . . ." ~Raymond Chandler

Effective copyediting isn't about rigid adherence to the rules of grammar, which exist only to facilitate a clear understanding of the written word. Sometimes, clarity requires breaking the rules. As an editor, my primary purpose is to ensure your words jump off the page and leap into the reader’s consciousness without the awkward, disengaging pause of confusion—not to square a circle with mechanical righteousness.

Service Description

My Services:
**************
• Proofreading
• Proofreading with light editing
• Medium to heavy copyediting
• Substantive/content editing
• Low-cost, one-hour sample copyedit and consultation, up to 500 words

My Qualifications:
*******************
I earned my JD in 2006 at the age of 31, graduating second in my class. I’m a certified copy editor and full member of the American Copy Editors Society, and I have over a decade of writing, editing, and proofreading experience.

I've edited the gamut—nonfiction manuscripts from self-help e-books to historical novels, fictional stories from fantasy to romance, web content from blogs to business websites, and even political campaign materials. My clients range from graduate students to sci-fi authors.

I'm also the freelance copy editor for the Adventure Travel Trade Association, and I proofread 30+ hours a week for a professional proofreading company that's been around for 18 years.

My Guarantee:

I guarantee that I will treat your...
