A proofreader's markings.


Attention to detail makes all the difference! A publisher had to destroy thousands of copies of a new book due to an embarrassing use of 'putrefy' for 'purify.' A proofreader's markings, as shown in the middle line opposite, would have saved the day.   

I advise, proofread and copy edit in the areas where I am widely published - mainly children's and educational books, as shown on my home page. However, I have qualified associates with expertise in fiction and humanities.


To quote a recent customer: 'How impressed I have been with the thoroughness of your proofreading and editorial comments.'


We're old enough to remember paper but normally work with digital copy, making corrections and recommendations in situ, as shown on this page.
