Service Description

I offer honest content editing and proofreading helping to put your books into shape based on my experience as a book reviewer. I offer library services including reference searching through books and the Internet weeding through multiple information sources to find the most accurate and helpful books, websites, etc. through my experience as a Library Intern and MLS.
I offer database entry putting together copious amounts of information into one coherent project based on my experience at the Goodwill Industries website.

I am available mostly online which may vary based on internet connectivity issues and can work throughout the day. A short project about a page long will take a day. Larger projects such as editing books could take one to two weeks. I am a very fast reader and can read multiple projects at once. I am looking forward to hearing from all of you. :D
