I’m a non-fiction copy editor and proofreader dedicated to encouraging content that aligns with a traditional, biblical worldview.
I’m an author, too, so I know your words are precious. I will preserve your voice while I polish your piece according to the standard industry style guides and your preferences. We’ll work together, so we’re both excited to uplift your readers.
If I can prove or explain why it’s wrong, I’ll fix it. You’ll know my suggestions are correct because I’ll note the source and page number in the comments. If the style guides give several options for a particular scenario (as they often do), my comments will include mention of the options, my recommendation, and my reasoning. Ultimately, it’s your piece, so you decide. The most important thing is consistency throughout your work.
Free Sample Edit
Before every project, I do a free sample edit of up to 1000 words to get an idea of your message and your writing. This helps me determine what you need, and it allows you to see how I work. It also helps us both spell out our expectations of one another and to determine if we’d make a good team for your project before work begins. Scroll down to request a sample edit.
During the proofreading stage, I make sure everything is correct and polished. I look for errors and inconsistencies in spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and more.
In the copyediting stage, I make sure your message is clear and makes sense to the reader. I look for issues in flow from one sentence or paragraph to the next, clarity, redundancies, active vs passive voice, and more. I will point out errors/issues, but I will not rewrite the sentence or paragraph. I may make a suggested rewrite in the comments.
Copyediting With Rewrites
In the copyediting with rewrites stage, I make sure your message is clear and makes sense to the reader by examining the same areas listed in the Copyediting category. I will rewrite problem areas, being very careful to retain your voice. I will save the document as (Title.VR.edited).
Do you have a few quick questions to determine if I’m the right person for your project? Do you want to chat? Send me a Facebook Message using the icon in the right corner or send me an email. I typically reply to email within 24 hours.
