What do you write?
I have written everything from systems requirements to short fiction. Visit the Portfolio page to see samples of my writing. You’ll get a feel for my style and my capabilities.
What type of projects do you work on?
Blog posts, marketing copywriting, articles – my writing services cover various industries and types of writing. If you have a question about my services and whether I’ll be fit for you, simply go to the Contact Us page to send an inquiry.
I’m writing a book, could you help with that?
Yes! Working on a book can be very overwhelming, especially if it’s your first one. I can assist you with book proposals, queries and with editing the manuscript. I also offer book consulting services to help guide you from the initial idea to getting it down on paper.
I can also help you with details such as researching your publishing options (should you self-publish or go with a traditional publisher), guide you with selecting book designers (for the interior and the cover) and creating back cover “sell copy” for your book. Writing a book can be overwhelming enough, and I can help to make it a much easier (and successful) project.
Why should I use an editor when I can do it myself?
You could do it yourself, but editing your own work is much more difficult and time consuming. You know what you expect to see on the page. When we’re reading our own work our mind tends to fill in words (and meanings) that aren’t there. Having someone else read your work means that you will receive objective feedback.
In addition, a skilled editor is well versed in grammar and punctuation rules and will be able to identify and correct any errors. Why put additional pressure on yourself to edit your work if an expert can do it in less time? Free yourself to focus on your creativity and work on your other projects.
What is the difference between editing and proofreading?
Proofreading covers grammatical errors, typos and formatting.
Editing covers the style and content of the writing.
Do you do rush jobs?
Yes I do, however there will be a 20% rush fee for projects that are required within 48 hours of the request.
Speaking of fees – how much do you charge?
Fees depend on what’s required for each client’s specific requirements. If your only consideration is to make the least expensive choice, then I’m probably not the best writer/editor for you. However, if you’re looking for quality writing/editing and attentive customer service, visit the Contact Us page and send me your project query.
