Service Description

As my Elance reviews and test scores show, I know my stuff, get my work done on time, and love what I do. Nothing makes me happier than helping people to improve their writing. I love style guides, grammar, spelling, sentence structure, characterization, formatting, and all of those good things that go into a written composition. I'm here to do the worrying for you.

During the past year, I have worked for clients all around the world on projects such as the following:
>>Edited and proofread nonfiction and fiction books for content, structure, grammar, punctuation, word choice, and spelling.
>>Formatted ebooks for publication on Amazon and CreateSpace.
>>Edited and proofread nonfiction articles.
>>Managed and refined social media, marketing, and website materials.
>>Drafted and proofread trivia questions for smartphone games.
>>Transcribed audio recordings.

From online media to books to business documents, I strive for perfection in my work, and never stop until you are 100% satisfied.

In addition to writing and editing, I also provide accurate print-ready transcription at an average rate of 98 words/minute. On the Elance transcription test, I scored in the top 1% of freelancers who took the test.
