    One thing that's common about e-books is the poor quality of editing found in them. If you have written a fiction, nonfiction or poetry e-book and need an editor and proofreader who will render it squeaky-clean...

About

They don't call me the Grammar Guru for nothing ...

In the recent past, I've edited a graphic novel, a children's book, a dating guide, a science fiction novel and several finance- and real estate-related works. I am a "pure" copy editor, meaning I don't generally take jobs outside that area of specialization. I am employed full-time as a CE, and it's the work my brain was designed to do. With me, you don't get someone who copy edits as a sideline or as part of a gamut of other skills. You get someone who lives, eats and breathes clean copy.

I also provide on-call/daily copy editing for several clients, handling their daily emails, reports and other materials.

My satisfied customers include online universities, real estate agents, marketers, website operators and many others.

Work Terms

I am flexible with regard to payment methods, although Guru SafePay is my preferred method. I will be prompt with feedback, and would appreciate the same!
