Copy Editing and Proofreading
I have advised and proofread for major publishing and broadcasting companies in four continents.
I am happy to offer you
Copy editing, to bring manuscripts to print-readiness
Proofreading - that final check on every last detail before the first print-run
Help and advice if you're an author at work on a manuscript or a publisher seeking an expert opinion.
Attention to detail makes all the difference! An embarrassed publisher had to destroy thousands of copies of a new book after confusing 'putrefy' and 'purify.' A proofreader 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 featured here). However, I have qualified associates with expertise in fiction and humanities. Foremost among them is my novelist son Robin Triggs, author of Night Shift and Human Resources.
In the words of a recent customer,
'How impressed I've been with the thoroughness of your proof-reading and editorial comments.
You're a pleasure to work with - meticulous, reliable and excellent value for money.'
We're old enough to remember paper but normally work with digital copy, making corrections and recommendations in the clear-cut way you can see in these examples.
