Cathy was fantastic to work with. Her approach was insightful and extremely knowledgable. Essentially, she helped me land my current job which I'm extremely grateful for. 10/10 will use again!
Freelance Copy Editor with Copy Editing Certification Have you finished your manuscript, grant request, proposal, business plan, dissertation, thesis, book, speech, brochure, essay, or presentation? You should obtain my services to prepare it for publication. I provide three levels of copy editing: Light, Medium, & Heavy. Light editing includes spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, item listings, table of contents, number usage, and word definitions/choice (an spelling checker spells an incorrect word correctly). Medium editing ensures correctness and consistency, addressing such issues as gender neutrality, format, content, style, syntax, logic, clarity, and word usage. Heavy editing adds the identification of redundancies, wordiness, triteness, vague generalizations, weak sentence style, organizational weakness, and lack of focus. In the past year I have edited nearly 100 professional services proposals. I am currently editing the pre-publication prospectus of a 'How-To' book.
Kerry Goff worked on my 240-page dissertation and I had no idea how much work a revision would be. Sometimes she would present 30 pages filled with comments and suggestions and I cried, there were so many corrections to make. Ms Goff was easy going, but not easy, which is what an editor needs to be. Over all, my dissertation went through the committee with surprising ease and I earned my Ph.D. in education. I could not have done it without her.
Hired Susan for an editing job to spot check works of fiction for inconsistencies, grammar, and punctuation.
I have been a writer/editor for over 25 years, and have worked for leaders of large organizations, like Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family and Bill McCartney of Promise Keepers, as well as for independent clients. I have edited a number of books for freelance customers and recently published my first book, "T is for T.Rex: Some of God's Most Amazing Creatures from A to Z."
