What types of manuscripts do I edit?
I have a background in editing both fiction and nonfiction, including novels, short stories, poetry, essays, articles, book reviews, and more. If there is something I have not listed, feel free to email and ask me about it.
What level of editing do you require?
I offer a variety of editing services, including proofreading, copy-editing, substantive editing, and developmental editing.
Nonfiction and Fact Checking
When editing nonfiction, I check for a number of things, including:
Consistency: Are you staying on track with your thesis?
How each idea flows into the next: Is there a natural progression of thought?
Contradictions: Did you state one fact in the beginning of the article, yet contradict it further into the piece?
As a fact-checker and editor, I have a sharp eye for inconsistencies and will be able to help you verify information, if need be. I have particular expertise and interest in nonfiction categories such as spirituality, new age, metaphysical, religion (primarily alternative faiths), history, automotive mechanics, automotive computers, the automotive industry, writing, the publishing process, editing, libraries, retail, the natural world, outdoors, fitness, running, hiking, and travel. If there is a particular subject that I have not listed here, feel free to ask me about it.

Disclaimer: I love helping authors prepare their work for publication. However, I make no claims that I can guarantee publication. I can help you make your work the best that it can be, but I cannot promise you that you will be accepted by a publisher. I wish I could!
