Service Description

Documents are emailed to me in Microsoft Word format. I utilize that "track changes" function for small grammatical changes, such as typos or punctuation changes, and the "comment" function to address and give feedback to particular sentences, paragraphs, or overall themes of the piece. I then send this document back to the author and engage in discussion of the comments if necessary.

I served as the substantive editor for:

"Divine Healing Made Simple" by Praying Medic
"The Coalition" by Aria J. Wolfe
"My Craziest Adventures with God, volume 1" by Praying Medic
"Seeing in the Spirit Made Simple" by Praying Medic
"Finding Home" by Jesse Birkey (soon to be released)
