Publishers sometimes need an extra pair of experienced eyes -- particularly small press publishers that often don't have the luxury of an editorial staff.
I provide freelance editing, proofreading, and writing services for small companies. Fiction or non-fiction, I just love the written word. Keep reading to find out what I can do for your imprint.
Editing and Proofreading Services
Everything from a basic read-through for grammar to all-out editing for style, tone, consistency, theme, nuance, language, and mechanics. For a more detailed description of my services, feel free to browse my general Editing & Proofreading page.
As a staff newspaper journalist for 10 years I have written everything from obituary briefs to flowing news feature series. As a freelancer I write newsletter pieces, synopses for the back cover, press releases, whatever you want. Samples of my writing are available any time. Drop me a line and let's talk business.
I am a 10-year professional reporter and editor specializing in business features, profiles, and language. I have won numerous awards for my stories over the years, in a broad range of categories. Everything from columns to solid news.
I am intimately familiar with AP style and highly competent in Chicago style. unfortunately, I am not familiar with AMA style.
I am an active member of Investigative Reporters & Editors, from which I also won an investigative journalism fellowship in 2004.
