Most editing requests are carried out on-screen using ‘Track Changes’ in Microsoft Word. This is a good way for both editor and writer to see changes and recommendations. However, I can use the 2005 BSI symbols to proofread hard copy, if that is the preferred method.
For copy-editing and proofreading I am happy to cover a wide range of subjects, both recreational and academic.
Fiction genres: literary, mystery/thrillers, historical, romantic, erotica, YA, general fiction, and short stories.
Non-fiction: memoir, religion, biography, horticulture, cookery, sport, and website content.
Academic – humanities: – dissertations, theses, coursework, adhering to the institution’s guidelines.
For development editing I work with fiction authors of literary, mystery/thrillers, historical, romantic and erotica. I also work with authors of memoir.
I do not work on: poetry, computer technology/software/hardware (internet, IT security, technical support).
