In my 20-plus years as a copyeditor and proofreader, I have worked on a range of subjects in a range of genres, including sports, music, memoirs, self-help, and fiction. "Just a quick note to say thank you so much for your excellent work. You made some excellent catches, posed insightful and tactfully phrased queries, and just generally handled things in such a thorough, supportive and efficient way" -- Senior managing editor of a Canadian publisher
For copyediting, I provide the following: editing for grammar, usage, spelling, punctuation, and other mechanics of style; checking for consistency of style mechanics and for internal consistency of facts; confirming heading levels; clarifying meaning, polishing language, and other non-mechanical line-by-line editing. I prepare a thorough style sheet.

Please contact editors directly for information about services, availability, and rates.
