Service Description

My services include full-length manuscript editing and proofreading, and may include project management.
I am a certified copy editor through University of California, using the Chicago Manual of Style.
I have managed more than thirty books through the publication process, including books on Christian Living, biblical scholarship, Texas history. I have edited or proofread many of those manuscripts.
My editorial work is done using Microsoft Word, which offers the benefits of "track changes," allowing authors and publishers to see each of the changes made and any comments or concerns that may arise in the manuscript. My proofreading work is done using Adobe Acrobat X Pro, which is a great program for noting corrections and comments.
