    You've got a story to tell and wisdom to share, and you want to ensure that what you put out is the very best it can be - a quality product, free of errors, and perfectly poised to open even more doors for you. Let me be an extra set of eyes to find the misspellings, the stray commas, the grammar no-nos, the signs of wonkiness, and the oopsies. What you get: 1. A draft of your book back in Word with tracked changes 2. Tiny, happy suggestions packed with the potential to make all of your future work better 3. Fixes for misspellings, stray commas, changes in tone, awkward sentences, and sad grammar Why I'm the perfect person for you: 1. I'm a writer, so I know the frustrations that can come with the gig. But I also know that incredible feeling you get when you launch. 2. I've been professionally proofreading for years, and I do it with joy. 3. I genuinely want to help you achieve what you're capable of. (And yes, I ended that sentence with a preposition. I make it a point to know the rules, even if I choose to break them from time to time!) 4. My degree is in English, and it's from one of the top 50 universities in America. What clients are saying: "WOW! The best, most insightful, most helpful review I have EVER received! She found things I never would have spotted, saving me years of embarrassment, and perhaps even saving my career. I will definitely use her services again. HIGHLY recommend. Thank you!!!" "Awesome and will be using again a lot in the future." "Many thanks. It's a huge to relief to know and see it read by a professional. Very much appreciated." "Excellent, professional work. Best editor! Will be back. Thanks so much." "There is no other option but to use this seller, does a super professional job always."  less
