Welcome, and thank you very much for reading my email and visiting my website.
I love working with some of the largest publishers. For many years I have been an approved freelancer (following testing) for a number of publishers and project management companies.
I work both on screen and in hard copy. For proofreading jobs, I can mark up in hard copy using BSI symbols or use annotation tools to mark up PDFs using proof-correction marks.
I use PerfectIt and a range of macros to both ensure greater accuracy and consistency and save publishers time and money, for example to:
I am experienced in making sound editorial decisions with reference to a variety of style guides and briefs, raising appropriate queries with authors and project managers, checking running heads and styling copy.
I can correct or query issues such as the consistency of places, characters, names and timeline.
Depending on what you need, I can identify and fix problems with dialogue beats and tags, tenses and head-hopping, and improve cadence and rhythm.
My extensive portfolio of fiction editing and high levels of dependability and professionalism, even with fast turnaround times, means I receive repeat custom from publishers, delivering high-quality on time and within budget.
