Proofreading & Copyediting
Author — Editor — Proofreader
Seeking serious writers only—no rough drafts. My expertise is proofreading, but I will offer suggestions and light edits as needed. Turnaround is about 2 weeks, depending on the nature of the work and my schedule.
ABOUT MY BUSINESS
I am a professionally published author with a great eye for detail. I can help you polish your manuscript before self-publishing or submitting to agents, editors, or business clients. Today, it is more important than ever to make sure your work is as good as it can be.
— Please, no first or rough drafts. The author should have some knowledge of the basics of grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure. Even so, mistakes happen. If something isn’t clear, I will question it or, with your permission, correct minor errors in spelling and punctuation.
— Prefer MS Word documents. Can do Track Changes. At this time, I do not offer proofreading of hard copy.
— No handwritten documents.
— Prefer fiction, nonfiction, short stories, children’s books (except illustrated books), novels, e-books (proofreading & minor edits—may help with e-book formatting if needed), biographies, business letters, resumes, obituaries, ad copy, term papers, and articles.
— No highly technical, foreign language, science fiction, or other work that requires extensive—and costly—research. Some foreign words are fine, but author must provide a style sheet with the correct spellings of unusual names, places, definitions, and special expressions.
— I use The Chicago Manual of Style and AP Style
