Type of work
Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: While I am highly qualified to do many types of writing and editing, I have chosen to focus my talents in the areas of Christian writing and children's books. I can also provide guidance on self-publishing. Christian writing is an under-served niche which, I believe, can greatly benefit from knowledgeable and talented editors and writers to help spread the good news of Jesus Christ in these troubled times. Children's books are great. I love writing and reading well-written and engaging children's books, not only for my own pleasure but for sharing the love of reading with our children. So important. It makes children better writers to read well-written stories meant for them. I've spent considerable time working with children and adolescents and appreciate the time and effort that writers put into their labors of love for kids. Self-Publishing: I also assist my customers with formatting their works for publication. Many writers have the motivation for writing but not the nuts and bolts of professional writing, layout, design, and self-publishing. This is where I shine. And where I can help you elevate your message to the professional, publishable level to reach as many people as possible. Rather than compete with a large pool of talented people for the massive amount of generic editing/writing jobs, I am choosing to use my talents to collaborate with good people who have a story to tell -- be it a book or poem, words to uplift or encourage, and a desire to make the world a kinder and more beautiful place. The world needs it now more than ever. On a technical level, I my goals are: - Write clear, elegant, crisp, and concise prose. - Don't be boring. Don't let your message get lost in cluttered writing. Don't make people think. - Let your ideas to flow seamlessly in clear, fluid, connected sentences without distracting your readers with poor grammar, punctuation, typos, or confusing jargon. - Don't put your readers to sleep with overused phrases, flat sentence structure, unnecessary words, or formulaic styles. - Don't want to make your readers work hard to grasp your meaning: long paragraphs, run-on sentences, weak verbs, flowery words, poor layout, and other common mistakes.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Mrs.Skimmons who truly went above and beyond in helping me with turning my manuscript into a book. From the moment we started working together, she was incredibly kind, encouraging and most of all honest about the work. Not only did she provide thorough and blunt feedback and suggestions for improving the writing. The attention to detail was impeccable!! In addition to her exceptional editing skills, this editor’s positivity and enthusiasm for the work were truly infectious. She made me feel supported and empowered throughout the entire process, and her kind words and encouragement motivated me to continue other adventures. I will certainly continue working with her!

Details: Editing • Proofreading • Non-fiction manuscripts • Non-profit • 10,000 - 30,000 words • A single project • Remotely (phone or internet) • At the pro’s location
