Service Description

As an editor, I will provide both developmental and substantive editing, in addition to thorough line edits. I am quite comfortable actively satisfying both roles.

For works of fiction, I will ensure proper characterization, appropriate narrative flow and structure, and consistent tone and style. For works of nonfiction, I will make certain the thesis is fully realized, suggesting improvements to logic and structure, as needed.

I guarantee a manuscript that adheres faithfully to Chicago Manual of Style guidelines, The AP Stylebook, or any unique house style, according to the client's wishes. I guarantee impeccable grammar, syntax, and usage.

If requested, I will provide a sample of the ongoing work to verify that my and the client's aims and goals remain commensurate.

I use Microsoft Word's track changes feature on a daily basis for digital editing; I also have experience with both Adobe Acrobat Pro and InDesign.
