Service Description

American English copy editing/proofreading for those desiring a clean manuscript before self-publishing, or before submitting manuscripts or proposals to agents and editors.

I look for typos, correct word usage and spelling, punctuation, grammar, paragraphing, readability, dialogue, flow, sentence structure, etc.
I use Word Track Changes, docx files.

I do fact-checking, unless its very technical material or the work has an overwhelming number of facts.

My job is to make your work look good, and I take that responsibility very seriously.

I'll do five pages as a sample for long projects, a partial page for short projects.
