Service Description

Whether you need full editorial services or to hire a proofreader for a final check of your e-book before it's published, my goal is to provide you with a flawless final product. I work with a variety of media styles and genres and stay current with style changes that can mean the difference between an accepted and rejected manuscript. Depending on your particular needs, I'll go through several revisions before finalizing a project.

I offer the following services to my clients, and you will receive work that I've completed myself. If I must subcontract out part of a project for any reason (such as for transcription services), I will notify you in advance and you have final approval over that addition to the project.

EDITING / PROOFREADING (fiction and nonfiction):
* Content review/analysis
* Assistance with voice/tone (active vs. passive voice, etc.) and word choice
* Removing redundant material, fixing repetitive phrases, and working on text flow
* Corrections for grammar, spelling, and punctuation
* Proofreading for typos and spacing/formatting issues

WRITING / GHOSTWRITING (fiction and nonfiction):
* E-books and blogs
* Brochures, PowerPoint presentations, and newsletters
* White papers
* Case studies and business reports
* Novellas and short stories (fiction)
