I am a freelance proofreader and editor based in Plymouth. I'm an Intermediate Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP). I offer proofreading and editing services for independent authors, students, academic researchers, independent business professionals, companies, publishers and professional societies. I also offer an early manuscript review (beta read) service for independent authors.
With twelve years' experience in the architectural design industry, I specialise in architectural design and related disciplines. But I also have recent experience proofreading, copy-editing, line editing and beta reading YA, fantasy, romance, action adventure and horror novels.
I am happy to work on a variety of subjects. I'm familiar with marking up on paper using BSI symbols and with Adobe Acrobat using annotations/sticky notes, but I usually work in Microsoft Word using Track Changes. I have proofread and edited in UK and US English, working with native and non-native English speakers. I also have experience working with different style guides. I am willing to work with your own house style, or I can help you develop your own personal or business style guide.
If you are looking for someone who can provide a professional, efficient and reliable service then please contact me and I will be happy to quote for your project.
