    Expert Free Lance Copy Editor

    Philippines - Last active: 01/02/2014 - Tests: 17 - Portfolio: 1

    My main goal is to be able to provide excellent copy editing service to Authors that needs time leverage. The process that I am introducing utilizes a different approach. I encourage Authors to participate in the entire Editing process. From the moment they submit their manuscript until they give me with the final approval for the work, the reason why it is important for Authors to be involve in the process is transparency and for them to make sure that the content of their work is in accordance to what they need for their book and would answer their needs for their specific niche market. This will ensure satisfaction and guarantee that authors are happy.
