I take a practical and flexible approach to editing and proofreading. I’m not a stickler for rules for the sake of rules, but a respecter of style, whether it’s corporate or publisher style or personal writing style. I edit as a reader of the text, with background knowledge on usage best practice, but primarily from the viewpoint of basic sense and clarity. The idea is to simply improve the flow of your writing for the benefit of the reader, to make their reading experience as seamless as possible.
To see a sampling of individual books and other materials I’ve copy edited or proofread, head over to my Edited and Proofed Portfolio page.
If you’d like more in-depth editing for your manuscript while it’s in progress, check out my developmental editing service here.
