Resumes

You want your copy to entertain, educate, persuade, or bring awareness. At the end of the day, you want a better book, a better proposal, a better essay, or a better resume.

 

This is where I come in.

 

My intent is to polish your words so that they're unambiguous, readable, enjoyable, more precise, and accurate without losing your message or voice. My ultimate desire is to see your work shine.  ​

I offer two basic levels of editing: Copyediting and Proofreading, both offered at the same price for a limited time only. This means there is no extra cost for one basic level of editing over the other.


I also offer two higher levels of editing -- Line editing and Developmental editing. If either of these is what you're looking for, please indicate so when you contact me. Extra fees apply.
 

 

With Developmental Editing, I focus on:

  • Critique of theme or thesis

  • Target audience

  • Development of ideas

  • Overall structure

  • Hands-on guidance & walk-through

 

With Line Editing, I focus on:

  • Line-by-line editing

  • Intended audience

  • Eliminating jargon

  • Organization

  • Design and style

  • Conciseness

  • Eliminating ambiguity while maintaining author’s voice and style

 

 

With Copyediting, I pay attention to:

  • Grammar

  • Vocabulary

  • Spelling

  • Punctuation

  • Capitalization

  • Syntax

  • Word overuse

 


With Proofreading, this will involve minor tweaks and corrections in Punctuation, SpacingSpelling, and Grammatical errors


All levels of editing will be accompanied by a complimentary critique of up to 400 words for manuscripts and reports, and up to 200 words for articles, press releases and resumes.


Why don't you contact me now and let's get started?

So you’ve got your book manuscript or report thoroughly edited. Now what?

Simply getting your book edited, no matter how thorough the edit, really isn’t nearly enough. It's time to get a professional and unbiased pair of eyes to constructively critique your text, an expert who won’t simply tell you what you want to hear, but will tell you what you need to hear in order to get your work to that level of greatness.


​With this service, your work will be methodically reviewed and you’ll be provided with constructive, unbiased and thorough feedback on the following areas:

FICTION MANUSCRIPT

  • Structure

  • Dialogue and characterization

  • Plot

  • Setting

  • POV

  • Voice/tone

  • Climax

NONFICTION, ARTICLES, ESSAYS

  • Flow of points between chapters/sections

  • Vocabulary

NOTE: This is a critique only - no editing included.

No obligation whatsoever. Take me for a test run and see where it takes you.
