Millerworlds editing with word

I offer proofreading, editing, and writing services at competitive rates. Clients include the Bibliotheca Alexandrina (the new Library of Alexandria), NYU Press, AUC Press, and Heinemann Publishers.

I am a fastidious and conscientious proofreader and editor, familiar with The Chicago Manual of Style, AP, APA, MLA, and Hart’s Rules. Though my primary focus is fiction, I have edited manuscripts in the fields of history, architecture, political science, biology, and law. Accustomed to writing and editing against deadlines, I offer fast turnaround on projects. Click here to read client testimonials.

I offer the following services:

Manuscript Evaluation

I will read through your manuscript and provide several pages of comments and notes regarding narrative flow, character development, and authorial voice. In addition, I will critique query letters and synopses and provide information on submitting to literary agents and publishers.

Editing

I will go through your manuscript twice, correcting errors of spelling and grammar, and ensuring that the narrative makes logical sense and flows. I make no distinction between line editing and copyediting; my goal is to create an immaculate text, suitable for publication, while preserving the author’s voice.

In editing fiction, I look at plot consistency and character development. I will sharpen dialogue, trim out unnecessary words, and note patches of static prose that could be removed. If necessary, I will suggest rewrites. I provide comprehensive notes on my work.

Proofreading

Proofreading is the final stage before publication, and is primarily for manuscripts that are in good shape, but need a polish. I will correct all errors of grammar and spelling, ensuring that the copy adheres to the appropriate style.

Contact me at the address below for details or to make a proposal. References will be supplied upon request.
