Proofreading & Copyediting

Bonnie Turner
Author — Editor — Proofreader


Seeking serious writers onlyno 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.


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 editsmay 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

Reasonable rates. Money back guarantee if not completely satisfied.
