kathryn in an eagle-eyed proofreader, a better-than-average editor and writer. She edited a book of mine on right-wing terrorism, and caught the textual errors that, otherwise, I'd have missed. The book is complex, not an easy read, and she proved to be a first-rate editor. I highly recommend her

Awesome! Kennerly is amazingly talented, helpful and wise. She is punctual, concise, and creative. She content edited my first draft and helped me to be consistent with my voice throughout my non-fiction book. Kennerly also encouraged me and is very professional. I plan to continue to work with her and will recommend her services.

I provide professional editorial services that offer the following: - timely delivery - responsiveness to author's needs - reasonable fees As a published author of three books on negotiation (one of which was named to Harvard Business Review's list of top ten titles for the year) and numerous web-based and journal articles, I am comfortable handling all phases of the publishing process -- from copy editing to proofreading and fact-checking. My background in consulting and academic credentials and experience in editing, first as a copy editor at Presbyterian Life, national magazine of the Presbyterian Church, and subsequently as manuscripts editor at Daedalus, journal of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, have equipped me both to deal with the rigors of scholarly work and to protect an author's voice in fiction and nonfiction. Accustomed to accommodating tight deadlines, I promise a quick and responsive turnaround working, from either disk or hard copy. Fees are negotiable, depending on the project's scope, at an hourly rate ($20/hour) or a fixed price.

In less than 15 seconds, you must convince the hiring manager that they should stop and read your resume, over the file of 20, 50, maybe even hundreds of other resumes they have to review, to determine if you are worth their time for an interview! When you hire me to prepare your resume, you are not only buying hours of word-smithing, brainstorming and realigning, you are investing in a masterpiece created just for you: a concise, attractive, results-driven resume that is professionally written and creatively designed on your behalf! Whether you need a resume written from scratch or a "Resume Rehash," where I take your current resume, rewrite and redesign it to give it an all-new winning look, you owe it to yourself to have a masterpiece speak for you. CAREER MARKETING SERVICES: Beginning at $80 for the following custom packages: * Professionally Written Resume * Custom Cover Letters * Resume Follow Up Letter * Interview Thank You Letter * LinkedIn Profile Creation or Editing Other editorial services include: DIGITAL CONTENT CREATION SERVICES: Pricing quotes available on a per job basis. * Blog Posts and Articles * Website Content * Thought Leadership * Social Media Strategy/Content EDITORIAL & PROOFREADING SERVICES: Beginning at $2 per page. * EDITING: Editing suggestions made at the level of the line/sentence where appropriate through Track Changes. This editing service checks for spelling, grammar, sentence structure, flow, consistency, point of view, suggestions for deleting and adding material and general revisions. Includes margin comments about craft/editing issues related to plot, dialogue, structure, character, voice, etc. is included. Though issues with grammar, spelling, etc. are brought to your attention, this does not include proofreading. Proofreading should only be requested when the manuscript is complete and in its final version. Editing comments are suggestions. The client will make the final revisions that fill in and change material. Editors do not revise/rewrite content for you. * PROOFREADING: Correction of punctuation, grammar, spelling, syntax issues, consistency, typos. This step is best left until the manuscript is the best it can be, per the above services. Proofreading and editing are separate steps that require two different ways of reading the manuscript, so editing is not included. Short pieces (short stories, essays, blog post, article) are charged the two hour minimum rate ($70) in lieu of the per page rate. Note: Content must be formatted properly prior to start of work: - double spaced - 1 inch margins on all sides - Times New Roman - 12 point font - Chapters begin halfway down the page and start flush left - New sections, scenes where there is a leap in time, location, or a move to a sustained new point of view should start flush left - The last name, portion of title, and page number appear in upper right hand corner like this: Name/Part of Title/Number, except on first page. Why the Vagabond Editor? Having worked and created content in a number of roles, I'm able match your voice and reach your audience. I have more than 10 years of experience in marketing and editorial roles for digital agencies, travel writing, financial and pharmaceutical firms and non-profits.

Over the last 2.5 years, David Gertler has helped me edit a book I am writing about chess. As a philosophy professor, I have had 12 books published in the last decade (mostly new editions of textbooks), and so I have extensive experience with editors, proofreaders, compositors, and so on. Mr. Gertler's work has been exemplary -- helpful, insightful, and prompt. He has done research for me, improved my prose, and noticed apostrophes that were backwards. He has marked up around 35 different chapters (sometimes multiple drafts), totaling several hundred single-spaced pages. I have agreed with upwards of 90% of his suggestions, which might be a record in my experience. He is one of the very best.

I could not be happier with Dorothy's excellent editing skills. Her written and oral feedback to me was right on target, demonstrating not only a fine grasp of the rules of language, but also an intuitive sense of what I was attempting to communicate. I would give her a well-deserved 5-star rating!

Jason has been very helpful, and as a published author in the non fiction realm and an excellent writer himself, he could immediately see what needed to be worked on in my MS. He put considerable time into an excellent critique that has been more than I expected.

Manuscript If you have an idea for a story and you're not sure how to go about telling it or if you've written something and want feedback or hints on how to make it better, I'd love to help. I do both writing original content and I provide editing/proofreading services. I also provide guidance for doing research if a client doesn't have ready access to the web or if they need ideas on how they can conduct a search. If you have a manuscript that needs rewriting or structuring for possible publication I can consult with you on that. Though I have a separate rate for that service, my rate is based on number of pages and what needs to be done with your manuscript. Entire formating of a manuscript into one suitable for e-books, takes a little more time regardless of number of pages and this rate will be on an evaluation basis and requires a consultation. Desktop Publishing and Graphics With my added interest in desktop publishing and graphic arts, I'm working to hone my skills in Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat and I'm getting my feet wet with Adobe InDesign as well. I also do photo editing, retouching and manipulation. I'm in the process of finishing up my portfolio which never seems to get done. It's a work in progress. I design my own cover designs for ebooks. Video Editing As a hobby, I also do digital video editing and my work has been enjoyed on YouTube and Vimeo as well as my special interest blogs. The rate I charge for this service is flexible and will depend on the length of the finished project you need. I use a few different programs for this but mostly I'm an all Mac-OS production shop (sorry, no Windows-based projects). Also I only work on digital files from your raw footage. At the present time, I can not work on any videocassette tapes and I'm not set up with an industrial style studio. It's just me and my desktop Mac! I know it sounds like I do a lot, but it reflects my interests I've developed over the years. I would love to do what ever it takes to make sure your project comes out awesome! My pricing is fair and I can tailor it to match the scope of your project and your budget. Thanks a lot and I hope that you will give me an opportunity to work with you.
