Editing & Proofreading

Everyone knows the importance of making a good first impression, so why not give your website, blog posts, ad copy—even your annual Christmas letter!—the benefit of an extra pair of eyes?  Eliminate any pesky errors (typographical, spelling, or puncutation) from your written material before the mistakes have been viewed by your readers, and ensure the positive nature of those first impressions.

I am experienced in proofreading, content editing, and copy editing, and I currently provide proofreading and copy editing services with an emphasis on books, blogs and web content. Each month, I proof hundreds of short articles and blog posts and gently polish them into clean, error-free copy.

I'm familiar with the Chicago Manual of Style and the AP Stylebook; in fact, I've been known to travel with the AP Stylebook in my bag (the Chicago Manual of Style is too heavy for that). I'm a fan of serial commas, but I can restrain my enthusiasm for them, if necessary.

I'm thorough and precise in correcting grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence structure—I love editing and I like to joke that the only reason I write is so I will have something to edit later. :-)

It's all too easy to make typographical errors or inadvertently omit a word—so why not let someone else proof your material before the entire world sees it?
