One advantage to reading hundreds and hundreds of books is that I know firsthand the pleasures of reading a book with few errors. Carefully constructed plots and well-rounded characters need to shine like authors intend, without errors to distract readers. My English degree, teaching experience, years of reviewing books, and training allow me to copyedit and proofread while preserving your voice, so the reader notices what you have to say, not your errors.
Proofreading assumes that the document has already been edited extensively. As the last set of eyes before publishing, I will:
correct errors in spelling
catch obvious errors in grammar
catch errors in formatting
review graphs, charts, and tables
My rate is $40/hour and includes a complimentary final reading after corrections have been made as long as there are no major rewrites.
As your copyeditor, I will:
correct errors in spelling, punctuation, and grammar
correct syntax and word usage
check for readability
look for internal logic
maintain consistent language style
double-check facts, names, and dates
double-check idioms and foreign language usage
maintain your voice through the process
My rate is $50/hour and includes a complimentary reading after corrections have been made as long as there are no major rewrites.
