Kick-ass editor will use her perfectionist prowess to whip your project into professional, publishable form in no time…
As a writer, I know how important one’s creative project is, and how protective of it a writer can be. Writing – especially completing a book or screenplay – can be a Herculean effort of time and focus. I approach each client’s project, of any length, with respect and care.
I offer personalized service, tailored to your needs and project. I do the work myself and do not contract it out. Of course, confidentiality is included in our written agreement. I do not ever discuss, reproduce, give, or show to anyone any material sent to me by the Author unless directed to do so in writing.
Editing – Copy editing for grammar, usage, spelling, punctuation.
Stylistic editing; clarifying meaning, eliminating jargon, polishing language; line-by-line editing for smoothness and clarity while maintaining author’s voice and style.
Developmental editing: critique.
Formatting – Essays, formal letters, etc., screenplays and manuscripts for submission to agents, and manuscripts prepared for self publishing in book format. I do not format ebooks.
Proofreading – I’ll be your second pair of eyes and check your document or manuscript word-by-word for grammatical and spelling errors.
Indexing and Table of Contents.
I work fast and do not waste time.
Some of my experience includes:
Authored, proofread, edited, formatted, designed, and self-published two books – one non-fiction for adults, and one short story collection for children. Sample sent upon request.
Former newspaper journalist – Attended local events and contacted news-makers to interview, photograph, and report for newspaper. Frequent front page articles and photos. (My editor never changed a word of my articles.)
Designed, wrote content, and maintained a blog-style website for seven years. Now I’m doing the same with this site.
Studied format, story arc, and industry standards for screenplay writing. Wrote, formatted, proofread and edited a feature-length, Writer’s Guild-registered screenplay.
