Proofreading/editing

My home language is English ( British parents ) and have always been an avid reader. I went through the old fashioned British school system when 'reading, writing and 'rithmetic were hammered into us! Spelling and grammatical errors just jump off the page at me..I am frequently astonished at how many books are printed and reach the shelves riddled with errors, having, presumably, been proof read. The truth be told I am retired and would like to spend my time being constructive, and proofreading/ editing is something I am good at. I have a university degree in economics and social anthropology.

    I Highly Recommend Ivan McKeag!!!!!! - Editors have a common purpose, to be a second pair of eyes. They correct errors in grammar and syntax. Ivan is a master at spotting these errors. But, his value goes way beyond the basics. He is a gifted editor who has made my work better, advised me on logic and construction and made suggestions that improved my book. He has done this without taking over and re-writing my book. When I made the decision to pursue writing, I was advised to find a really good editor and listen to their advise. I am blessed to have found Ivan. He is my editor of choice and continues to edit my articles and will edit all of my future work. John Pittman
