    You want your written material to shine -- to catch the reader's eye, keep their attention, and get your message across. I can help make sure that nothing detracts from that process, whether it be awkward word usage, grammatical errors, or inconsistency in format. A unique combination of experience in copy editing, proofreading, teaching English as a Second Language, and Japanese-English translation, along with years spent as an administrative assistant, gives me stellar skills in both the nuts and bolts of language (grammar and spelling, vocabulary usage, and appearance) and larger issues of voice, overall flow, and nuance. I've helped craft sales materials and museum exhibits, novels and books on Buddhism, academic and Web articles and presentations. My clients are uniformly impressed by my thoroughness and speed, and tell me my services contribute greatly to the quality of the finished product. AVAILABILITY: Monday through Friday (in U.S.), 9 am to 6 pm Pacific Standard Time (GMT - 8), flexible depending on deadlines.  less

April is passionate about helping people unleash their inner “Bad-Ass”, so that those who experience her message are empowered to embrace the idea of living their dreams, as they were meant to be, rather than suffering through the lack of an otherwise uninspired life. April is co-chair of the Infinite Possibilities Global Teen Taskforce, and contributes her energy to realizing its goal of helping people unlock their inner divinity and creativity, thereby empowering them to envision and manifest the lives of their dreams in spite of the influence of their everyday life experiences. Her next book, a top secret passion project, is scheduled for release in the Summer of 2014.  less

    **Perfect score on oDesk's spelling test and top 10% on vocabulary** I am a professional editor with experience proofreading, copy editing, and developmental editing for more than ten different book publishers. What you need to know about me, first of all, is that I care about your document. When I take on your project, it becomes my project. I want your book, paper, or document to be as professional as possible and will put all my skills toward meeting that goal. I earned my BA in English from the University of Colorado and, way back when, was the valedictorian of Anoka High School in Anoka, Minnesota, class of 800 students. Much of my experience comes from the Christian market. I’m knowledgeable about Biblical concepts and theology if that’s the direction your manuscript leans. I’ve also edited fiction and many other types of nonfiction, including health, sports, and business books, recipes, memoirs, and periodicals. I especially love the topics of history, science, gardening, and music.  less
