I am an Intermediate Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) and have taken their courses in Copyediting and Proofreading. I am an active member of CIEP local and international networking groups, an avid reader of the excellent posts on the CIEP forums, and attend the CIEP conferences.
As a freelance copyeditor and proofreader, I am building up my portfolio of different specialisms within historical fiction and non-fiction:
- Local History
- Social History
- Family History
- Military History
Please take a look at my portfolio page for more information on the different types of books I have copyedited and proofread.
I prefer to copyedit and proofread directly into a Microsoft Word document using tracked changes, although I do have a working knowledge of BSI 2005 symbols on paper as well as commenting tools on Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.
I will copyedit and proofread your texts to the very best of my ability and also suggest areas for improvement, as necessary, without compromising your author's voice. I will follow your company's House Style Guide (if provided) and am happy to provide you with a Style Sheet once the project is completed. This is useful to ensure consistency within repeat business.
