Good Work

Writers need a good set of eyes to review their work before it goes to print. When proofreading, Iíll check your document for such things as correct spelling, punctuation, grammar, and style consistency. Here are just a few of the books Iíve proofed and their authors:

The Diary of a West Point Cadet and Warren Buffett’s Three Favorite Books by Preston Pysh

The Littlest Green Beret by Jan Rutherford Jr.

Degrees of Strength by Craig W. Ross and Steven W. Vannoy

Crystal Chronicles by Jimmy Chen

Off Trail by Jenny Glikin

The Path of No Resistance by Garret Kramer

In addition to having your work proofread, you may want it copyedited as well. I define copyediting as reviewing your work for everything listed under Proofreading, as well as such things as checking facts, looking for consistency in tone, and making sure there are smooth transitions between paragraphs. Iíll also raise questions and make suggestions if something seems unclear. Here are just a few publications I’ve copyedited:

Nutritional Grail by Christopher Clark

The Tim Hartwell series by Aeneas Middleton

The Realm Between Heaven and Hell by J.S. Turner

Torch & Trefoil, Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity

Your Next Mission by Lida CitroŽn

ONE Team by Craig W. Ross and Angela V. Paccione, Ph.D.

You know (or kind of know) what you want to say but just donít have the time, expertise, staff, or big budget to bring your message to life. Thatís why we need to work together! Here are just a few of the clients Iíve written for:
