Spelling mistakes leap at me from off the page! I'm a grammar fanatic and have a built-in spellchecker! Make sure your newsletter, pamphlet or website makes sense and isn't full of errors.
The best editors can read a writer's intentions, not just their words.
I specialize in helping writers for whom English is a second language shape their writing into a more accurate, natural, and pleasing form.
From business documents to biographies, and anything in between - I can make the difference for you.
My proofreading jobs have included novels, biographies, magazine articles, newsletters, websites, testimonials. I am the editor of a monthly newspaper, The Adventurer. I have just completed editing a 173 page biography and a 190,000-word novel, so I am available to work for you today.

Graham has done a fantastic and quick job for us, at a very competitive rate. He went the extra distance to make sure we ended up with great copy for our brochure.

Graham edited over 70,000 words for my auto-biography. He was professional, accommodating, thorough, honest and really personable. He phoned me to find out my goals, and sent me regular portions of writing as he finished them. He emailed both the edited versions and ready to print versions which was very useful. Graham went the extra mile to fully understand the subject matter and phoned me after the job was complete. I recommend Graham to any book writer because he is great at what he does.
