I'm a published author, copyeditor, and proofreader with an eye for errors.
I've been copyediting and proofreading for other writers for over twelve years, with many happy return clients. I'm a former library cataloguer and newspaper proofreader. I have five commercially published novels in romantic suspense and romantic adventure, plus numerous short stories for adults and children.
My estimate will be based on the computer word count of the project, not hours. My time estimate will be based on estimated hours needed to complete.
My rates are very reasonable.
My job is to make your work look good, and I take that responsibility very seriously.
Below are links to a list of books I've worked on and a short sample edit.
I look for typos, correct word usage, punctuation (clarity, natural pauses, whether it's just plain correct, and whether or not the writer prefers/uses the serial comma), grammar, paragraphing, readability, dialogue, flow, sentence structure, and so on.
I do fact-checking, unless it's very technical material or it has an overwhelming number of facts.
I work with Track Changes in Microsoft Word .docx or .doc files. I also return a file with All Changes Accepted along with the file showing changes.
Check, money order, or PayPal (add 3%).
