Service Description

“The work was done incredibly fast and the outcome was even better than I expected. I really appreciate the suggestions that improved my project. I look forward to working with this provider again.” (paulcj2)

EDITING & PROOFREADING SERVICES:
Editorial and support requirements are as unique as fingerprints, and need to be fulfilled with individual care and respect.

Projects have included:
- Non-fiction books
- Short story anthologies
- Product detail datafeeds
- Entrepreneurial orientation materials
- Psychology articles
- DIY tutorials
- Existing web copy
- Blog posts
- Product descriptions
- Marketing copy
- Training manuals
- Website foundation text
- Sales material
- Press releases
- Research reports
- Newspaper articles
- Magazine article conversion (print to web)

My focus is on preserving your voice while perfecting the text. If your project is casual and conversational, that cadence must remain after the grammar and punctuation are checked and tweaked. If your project is business or technical, no shift in tone will be detected.
