Stephanie was very good at identifying specific opportunities for condensing/editing my material, as well as overall proofreading. She has an opportunity to extend her value once she gets more into the production side of things, particularly eBook formatting.

When I approached Elicia Stoll to edit my series Love Out Of Lust, I was amazed how she was able to relate with what I wrote. Her editing skills, kept me on my toes, as well as her suggestions to the manuscripts. She has edited all four of my books, and I can’t wait to finish more of my stories to send over to her. She is an awesome editor worth appreciating. - Ray Sostre Author

Megan stuck with me to the end on this resume writing project. She made every change that I asked for and her communication was timely. I would hire her again!


Along with step by step consultations & suggestive writing & comments this service provides accurate proofreading, rewriting, consistency & editing


I have incredible attention to detail that will ensure your work moves forward in the publishing process error-free.


My primary expertise lies in coordination, editing, copy editing and proofreading print and web-based content. Style manuals never fail me. On the creative end, I have worked as a script doctor, as well as worked directly with authors on manuscripts. Periodically, I conduct writing workshops on grant writing for nonprofits. Meticulous to a fault, I am consistently pleasant to work with and understand the importance of deadlines.


For twenty-five years I have been a professional editor and proofreader. My experience includes six in-house years with a publisher and almost twenty years of freelance work with companies and writers all over the world. Experience editing fiction (all genres, children's, YA, and adult) and nonfiction, including educational materials, business books, and self-help books. Will edit Word documents onscreen (using track changes), PDF files onscreen or on hard copy, or printed hard copies. Detail- and deadline-oriented; easy to work with.


As a proofreader and editor, I review a customer's project, before and after my proofing and editing, at least three times to be certain that it's correct.


Editing, proofing, some writing. Many years of experience; during which time I trained other copyeditors. Great attention to detail; perfectionist attitude.
