I currently serve as copy editor for Chief Executive Magazine. My Elance clients have rated over 100 projects I performed in six categories as producing 100% satisfaction. I do your work. There is no outsourcing.
As a USA native with a BA in English, I have been an EDITOR for a BOOK PUBLISHER, a Vice President of Marketing for two firms, and a research historian and editor for a government contractor doing work for U.S. government agencies.
I am a professional with over thirty years of expertise in writing, editing and proofreading. Although I am based in the Pacific Northwest, I service clients worldwide. My experience spans self-help materials, fiction and nonfiction books and ebooks, articles, short stories, novels, study guides, websites, sales and marketing consulting books, sales and marketing collateral materials and 300-page government reports. No project is too large or too small.
Let me help you polish your work to its gleaming best.
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!"

No initial deposit is necessary. I welcome any payment terms acceptable to Elance and request the client to fund the project in Elance escrow prior to beginning work. I prefer to divide a lengthy project into four milestones and to be paid for each one when it is completed. Usually, each milestone is 25% of the project.
