When you hire me, you hire a professional editor with years of experience and not a hobbyist trying to earn extra cash. This is what I do.
All editing is done electronically using Microsoft Word and the track changes feature. If you are not familiar with the track changes feature, I can help you with it.
No hard copy manuscripts.
Preferred References: Gregg Reference Manual, Chicago Manual of Style, Oxford Style Manual, but will work according to your "house style" if you have one.
