I love working on science fiction, fantasy, romance, and RPG guides. I’ve worked on four guides for Nine Dragons RPG and edited the core rule book and an adventure guide for Biohazard Games. Festive Ninja games hired me to copy edit a quick start guide. I've edited dozens of romance, science fiction, and fantasy novels. I also proofread and copy edit a local newspaper. I have a bachelor’s degree in professional writing, the Poynter ACES (American Copy Editing Society) Certificate in Editing, and the Certificate in Specialized Copyediting from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD writes copy edit as one word).
I am very comfortable editing with either the Chicago Manual of Style or the Associated Press Stylebook. I use Microsoft Word's track changes feature to show you exactly what changes I propose. I am also very familiar with Excel and PowerPoint.
I am a detail-orientated copy editor, developmental editor, and proofreader. I will not only identify and correct mistakes, but I will also ensure that the story you’re telling is cohesive and engaging. I do this by asking you questions and making suggestions that you may wish to incorporate in your work.
Once I have finished polishing your work, all you’ll have to do is send it to the publisher, click the send button, or upload it. You will feel confident that your piece is ready to be seen and appreciated. Reviews and comments will be about what you wrote, and not about a missing semicolon. Your readers will trust you and want to read more from you.
Here is a list of the services I offer:
- Copy editing
- Developmental editing
- Line editing
- Book critiquing
- Beta reading
- And more
