Andi delivered the agreed upon services on time and above expectations. I was very pleased with her line editing and would absolutely hire her again for similar work.
At the very beginning of our working relationship, Jane spent a GREAT deal of time helping me narrow down what the specific and unique focus of my book was, and the time she took to help me with this critical foundational aspect of the whole book was monumentally important. In similar fashion, she devoted a lot of time and expertise toward helping me identify and promote myself as a legitimate author whose voice and authority are valid and necessary. Then throughout the writing and editing stages, Jane engaged herself in the work not only as a copy editor but also as a potential consumer/reader of the book, which pushed me to make the content more coherent and more accessible to the reader. In addition to her knowledge and skills regarding format, style, and grammar, she has a good sense of how to maximize a book's chances of attracting, maintaining, and rewarding its readers. Additionally, throughout the entire project, Jane was just as attentive to what the book meant to ME, the author, as she was to what the book would mean to the reader. Overall, I enjoyed the working relationship that Jane and I had, and she helped me to grow in so many ways.
With 35 years of teaching writing and grammar in high school and college, I can help. A six-time published author, I have edited doctoral dissertations and book manuscripts and I work fast. I do NOT do bibliographies.
Why should you hire me for your writing and editing needs? Though I am new to thumbtack (as you can see by my very sparse profile,) I have written and edited literally thousands of articles, white papers, press releases, and manuscripts. At the risk of sounding immodest, my work is impeccable (as are my references.) I have never had a client who was not thoroughly satisfied with my work. Ever. And I'm not talking about after the fourth or fifth draft or re-write. I mean with the very first draft. That's right. I am a stickler for excellence and harder on myself more than anyone else. I've been accused of being a perfectionist when it comes to my work. My response? Yep, sure am. That's my job to perfect my writing or someone else's. I tell folks that if you're a writer and editor and aren't striving for perfection each time, you're in the wrong line of work.

Words are a powerful way to convey meaning. I am dedicated to words and am known for lending a refreshing point of view, even to projects that have gone stale. I use APA or MLA style, am proficient in Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Publisher, and Adobe Elements. Footnotes, end notes, indexing, formatting, all are at your fingertips. I write in your choice of scholarly, casual, or professional voice. Proofreading for spelling errors (not just spell-checking) and light corrections are included with your project at no extra charge. Please note that I do not write course work for students. Most universities have good "writing centers" which help with academic/research papers, literature reviews, bibliographies, etc. It is best to use the resources at each particular university in order to preserve the academic integrity of the work.
