Charles Justus Garard, Jr. PhD I have known Dr. Garard for approximately 28 years and worked with him as a colleague, teaching at the college level from 1989 until 2003. During my association with Dr. Garard, I have observed his expertise not only in teaching and mentoring but also in his writing skills. He was exceptional at proofreading several of my documents and manuscripts, as well as offering other colleagues writing and literary assistance. In addition to his regular college teaching duties, he taught English as a second language on weekends to students in several minority communities in Atlanta. He traveled to China as a professor in English language, literature, and writing, where he served for seven (7) years. Dr. Garard has demonstrated an outstanding talent with the English language and is an invaluable asset to both writers and editors. Please feel free to contact me if I can offer further insight into Dr. Garard’s gifted abilities. Donald W. Blair 404-375-1435

    Steve did an excellent job with my novella. He kept my voice and did what an edit/proofreader is suppose to do, edit and proof to where now those who read my story tell me rave reviews. I just wish more would write review. :-)

    W. Marshall is so smart! She did a superior editing and proofreading job to my appellate brief that I submitted to the Fifth District Court of Appeals. I am a lawyer. My brief was 40 pages, and she did not miss one area that needed editing or a typo that needed fixing. Thank you so much for the quick turnaround, your responsiveness, and professionalism. I won my appeal. I will definitely use her services again!

    I will tell you up front if I am working on another project, rather than make you wait. Besides normal editing your, I can help you get your book into formats to e-publish. If you have cover art, I am great with Photoshop and can help you polish it. I enjoy meeting people like myself, who want to write for a living. I can learn and maybe I have something to teach.

    I've been writing, editing, and proofreading professionally for more than 25 years. During that time, I've worked on just about every kind of project imaginable: print and online; short copy and long; consumer and business-to-business; lead-generation and direct response; fiction and non-fiction...well, the list goes on. I've even written a business book that Dearborn Trade published, and I'm currently in the process of writing several children's books. For me, words are more than just "business." They are part of who I am. And I'd be happy to bring that same level of passion and enthusiasm to your project.

    Clear Communication is important in relaying information to others. The best ideas are meaningless if your audience cannot understand them, or worse, give up before you can fully explain it to them. This is where I come in! -webpage proofreading: including spelling, grammar, and punctuation. -editing foreign web copy in English to remove awkward phrasing. -limited HTML editing. Ask yourself this. Why should your audience listen to your smart idea if the message comes across as uneducated? Many websites contain copy errors in grammar, spelling, and punctuation because they are quickly created and posted without being proofread first. Foreign websites are often mistranslated, making for awkward reading. I help to rephrase awkward sentences, making them easy to understand. Because most people are not web developers, syntax errors often pop up on your web pages, distracting your audience from your true message. I can help to resolve these issues, insuring your web pages display only what you want it to.
