In a very crowded field, populated with scam artists and incompetent or inadequate editors/ proofreaders, whom do you select and how do you know if you’re correct to choose that person to work with you on your precious writing?
As a published nonfiction and ebooks fiction author with many years of teaching English/Language Arts behind me, many books I’ve edited/co-written/ghostwritten and many articles, short stories, poems and scripts as well, plus my own website and frequent blog posts, I have work you can see.
YOU can decide if you want to hire me by checking my published and printed writing.
[NOTE: If you are going to read my sci-fi/romance ebooks in The Spanners Series (Vol I, This Changes Everything, is free) to see how well I edit, you should know that I wrote those deliberately in the present tense to make a plot point, not because I don’t know how to use verb tenses.]
I can help you learn more about how to write better by discussing the reasons/foundations for the edits and corrections I provide
OR just provide proofreading/copy editing with no conversation:
With my experience and academic background, I can edit/proofread:
- fiction, most genres and any length
- nonfiction, any length, including marketing materials and manuals for many purposes
- academic or professional White Papers in education and social sciences
- articles and essays on most topics
- literature reviews and dissertations or other graduate theses/writing in education and social sciences, using APA Style formatting
Maybe you already have an editor/proofreader you’ve used before, but reviewers or readers have complained about typos, mistakes and other problems. I can be the professional editing consultant who assesses your previous work and then honestly tells you if someone you’ve hired in the past is worth hiring again.
Editing consultations cost a lot less than paying a bad editor/proofreader for sloppy work and then having to pay someone else to do it AGAIN, not to mention dealing with the upsetting delays.
I offer great rates (negotiable; see below), quick and reliable service.
Work online via email, Google docs or Drop Box.
