Happy to do a free sample edit.
Some examples of recently completed work: (1) an economics article for publication, (2) a nonfiction novel about leadership for small business owners, and (3) a fiction novel about mermaids.
When editing a given work, I take both copyediting and proofreading into consideration. My expertise is US English, but I can work in UK English as well. I am well versed in CMOS, MLA, and APA. Alternatively, I can follow an in-house style guide as long as you provide it (or a link to it). I have working knowledge of AP Style. I follow the "Five Cs" when editing and will always strive to make your work as clear, correct, concise, comprehensible, and consistent as possible.
My aim is to enhance your writing in order to capture your target audience's attention. I take my work very seriously and put my all into producing a high-quality end product. I read, write, and edit material every day and look forward to any opportunity I get to help others.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Happy writing!

Maybe you're rushing through a nearly overdue assignment, worried your emails don't sound professional enough, or just feel like you need someone else to check your work for errant apostrophes. No matter what you need, I'm here to help. While I specialise in academic papers for ESL students, my previous work includes everything from PhD theses and magazine articles to short stories, professional emails, and business reports. During university I also regularly proofread and copy edited fellow students' assignments and was sub-editor for the university newspaper. Writing and editing degree-level essays has helped me to gain a strong sense of what is appropriate for academic texts in particular. I enjoy editing a range of material, meet deadlines without fail, and look forward to working with you.
I specialize in fantasy and science fiction, but I have edited a variety of novels for both the general market and the Christian submarket. Two of my own books are traditionally published, and many pieces of my short fiction have been published in magazines and anthologies.
I have edited more than 50 novels, about two-thirds of them speculative fiction. I've also edited about two dozen nonfiction books.
Nonfiction topics I am familiar with include business, history, philosophy, and religion, including Bible studies. Despite a twenty-year career in business journalism, I still believe in preserving each author's unique voice.
I'm an elder in the Presbyterian Church USA and have taught Bible studies at my church.
