Service Description

When appropriate, I may suggest ways to strengthen your ideas and/or concepts, as well as provide specific recommendations for emphasis and continuity.

My meticulous editor and proofreader skills are blended with available creative writing and revision services in support of your original concepts and the actual copy supplied. Using the Track Changes function of Microsoft WORD, marked-up drafts as well as clean, final copy are provided. Should you desire, I welcome communication by telephone or Skype during the process of working on the project.

Are you looking for an experienced editor and proofreader? Try me. You will be delighted with my work. EDIT and PROOFREAD are my favorite two words; and, when I edit, edit, edit and proofread, proofread, proofread, you will think, "METICULOUS, AWESOME and TERRIFIC!"
