Marty restored the look of two of my pictures. One is a black and white picture from the 1950s that has been folded several times and torn. He took the photo, cropped the boring sky to make the picture more interesting and "erased" the fold lines. The other photo was a faded color photo from the 1960s and he brought the color back and fixed some blemishes. Now I have two lovely photos to share with my family. Best of all, I scanned them to him and he scanned them back. Neither one of us even had to leave our desks. Thanks, Marty.

I had Square Core and Christian help me with my last book. They did a great job of editing and giving me advice as to framing some of the content. I would highly recommend them to parter on a book project!

Sheila did the first edits on an article I was publishing in an academic journal. Aside from grammatical and spelling errors and inconsistencies, she caught a "bug" in my research that helped shore up my conclusion. Very happy I found her and I look forward to working with Sheila again.

About

From a young age, I fell in love with the power of words to shape and inform meaning. I studied primarily literature, writing, and cultural studies in both my undergraduate and graduate programs. In my freelance work, I edit primarily academic and business documents, as well as web and advertising copy, for a variety of high-profile editing and proofreading companies. In addition, I also edit for independent clients seeking my services to ensure that their writing is clear, concise, powerful, and communicative of their intended style and message. As a professional editor, my particular area of preference is book-length manuscripts that require editing prior to being submitted to a literary agent and/or (self-)publishing. I will work with you to determine your specific needs, providing extensive editing using the Track Changes feature in Microsoft Word. Additionally, I utilize the Comments feature to provide detailed comments that are meant to strengthen your writing, point out discrepancies or areas in need of clarification, and offer suggestions. What distinguishes my services from other editors’ services is that I am available for Skype consultations to discuss any questions that you may have. In my editing work, I consider myself to be a true partner in helping to ensure that your writing is the most powerful, clear, and expressive that it can be, all while editing for grammar, spelling, syntax, and organization.

About

I am a writer and editor with an BA in English and an MA in US History. I've been writing for exhibits and visitor centers for the past 15 years, and I'm currently editing novels, as well. I research, plan, write, and act as editor and proofreader for exhibits in museums, visitor centers, interpretive trails, and the like. I've completed over 70 projects for public and private clients. Since 2012, I have also been employed by Barking Rain Publishing as a fiction editor. Editing begins with development and content, followed by at least three refining passes at the work--ending with line-by-line proofreading. I hope my experience matches your needs.
