Services

My main service is editing eBooks and traditional books, including both nonfiction and fiction. I also offer website editing and academic article proofreading. I have experience working with both American English and British English and am familiar with their variations.

Complete book and eBook editing service includes:

  • Nonfiction: Feedback about any issues related to tone, audience, details, logical order, clarity, consistency, structure, transitions and overall impression.
  • Fiction: Feedback about any issues related to characterization, plot, pacing, setting, dialogue, transitions, craft, and overall impression.
  • Related topic and term research, fact-checking.
  • Proofread spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, pronouns, spacing, verb-tense and basic formatting consistency.
  • Eliminate redundancy and extraneous words and phrases, adjust sentence and paragraph structure, rewrite run-on sentences, replace overused words with synonyms, and substitute weak words, phrases, and sentences with stronger alternatives while keeping original tone.
  • Format indents, spacing, paragraphs, alignment, font size, bulleted lists, styles, table of contents, headers, footers, sections.
  • Add relevent front matter: title page, copyright page, dedication, epigraph, contents, foreword, preface, acknowledgements, introduction.
  • Write description for book cover or Amazon listing.

Proofread English and ESL academic essays, dissertations and articles for spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, pronouns, spacing, and verb-tense. Provide feedback about any citation issues. (Copyediting is NOT provided for academic content as this would violate standard policies regarding academic integrity and collaboration)
