Clients I'm Seeking:

 

Mainly writers (fiction, nonfiction, and academic) and an occasional publisher (e.g., magazine, book and textbook publishers).

About My Business:

 

I proofread manuscripts, discern internal inconsistencies, examine the logic of arguments, characterizations, and interpretations or applications of quotations to concepts. I either use Track Changes and Comments in the Reviewing Tab or Toolbar in MS Word to suggest changes, or I make the changes and use Comments to inquire about elusive meanings or to suggest new ways of expressing ideas. I ask writers to provide samples in order that I may give an hour's worth of edits as I endeavor to make a per-page estimate on the job. A publisher may have other editorial tasks to make a magazine better: e.g., ensuring TOCs or Directories are correct in page referrals, ensuring pictures or ads are presented per contract requirements, ensuring captions, editorials, directories match in contact details, correcting typos in any context, etc. A book publisher may have more technical tasks in mind to ensure either a manuscript can be published or that it is ready for publication. And writers of dissertations need to know that their citations are all accounted for in their references, TOCs and lists are accurate, and that paragraphs are all consistently correct throughout. I'm open to learning opportunities in the evolving publishing world as well as teaching opportunities one-on-one to new writers.
