25+ years in the typing / proofreading / copy editing field. Excellent grammar, knowledge of some legal ease, a fair amount of creative writing done throughout my career. Copywriting available if needed, extremely imaginative and creative.
I am a stay-at-home freelancer who had to retire early and would welcome your project. As a proofreader and editor, my goal is to help authors reach their audiences and excite them with words, whether it be fiction or non-fiction.
In all of my positions throughout my career I was responsible not only for the typesetting and format but the proofreading and editing as well. The customer counted on me putting forth my best effort to return an accurate and polished product. When some content/creative writing was needed, the client trusted me to either rephrase what didn't sound right or do research if necessary and pull the project together.
Please check out my profile for experience, talent and the tests I have taken so far and passed. I belong to 5 websites; Freelanced, Outsource, Guru, PeoplePerHour, and Upwork. I have proofread and edited 6 children's books, proofread and edited a 73 pg. research paper and multiple dissertations, proofread, edited and did some content writing for a 201-page story, a couple of novels/bios of a Christian nature, a continuing e-book novel series of 380 pgs., an educational book on healthy eating, weight training, and weight loss, plus other novels of various genres such as romance, sci-fi, and fantasy. All my freelance efforts have received excellent reviews. You are welcome to view them on any of the sites I belong to.
Editing rates vary due to the complexity or extensive re-writes that might be requested. Normal rate is $2.50 per thousand words. Anything is negotiable.
