Services offered include: Writing * Copy editing * Editing * Proofreading ... more* Research * Layout* Indexing I offer high-quality work backed by experience, reliability and personalised attention. As an editor I can offer a light touch to remove the few errors you've missed, a thorough review to correct grammar and punctuation errors, or a deep edit to ensure your text says what you want it to say in the way that you want it to say it. (I have also worked extensively with non-native English speakers.) As a writer, I supply well-written, interesting, informative and engaging copy. Whether you're looking for short articles or a full book, I will provide precisely what you need — within your deadlines. I am a member of the National Union of Journalists. I also have experience of laying out text for print and for Kindle. I use In Design CS5.5 for layout work. I have conducted research for a number of clients and hold a reader's ticket to the British Library allowing access to much more material than can be found in a web search. Please contact me if you want to discuss a potential project. **************************************** Addressing your requirements: I can work in US or British English according to your preference. I can be available by email, Skype, phone or IM and respond quickly to all communications. My terms are always open to negotiation. Clients: I have worked for private clients, small and large businesses and government organisations as a freelancer. My approach to work can be flexible according to your requirements although I report on progress at a minimum of once a week for large scale projects. Education and Background: I have a BA in Media Studies (Journalism); a Master's degree in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology and have also completed a course in paleography. I also hold a diploma in astrology. Writing: My writing style is clear and straightforward and I have experience of writing for teenagers and children as well as adults. I have written for both a general audience and for academic purposes. Editing: I can provide copy editing to correct typographical, punctuation, grammar and spelling errors as well as highlight inconsistency and ambiguity. I supply both a Word tracked version as well as a clean version, so that you can approve any edits made, as well as easily read the effects of those edits. I would seek to retain your voice at all times. I have edited articles, ebooks and full-length books, both non-fiction and fiction. I can also provide substantive editing addressing issues such as organisation, flow, repetition and structure and provide fact checking where necessary. Proofreading: I have proofread a wide range of material from articles, through books and academic papers. I am familiar with all of the major referencing formats and can adhere to the style you request. Books: I have written and had published (not self-published) ten books under my own name as well as ghostwriting several titles. Further details are available on request. Two of my books are historical biographies and I have also ghostwritten two full-length autobiographies. I have had one novel published under my own name. I have also written a number of children's books (for 8-12 year olds). Ebooks: I have written ebooks from 10 to 150 pages in length and am able to cover practically any subject. I can also lay out the copy according to your requirements and supply copy in both a Word and pdf file. Biography: I have had two historical biographies published and have ghostwritten two autobiographies. Articles: I have written numerous articles for print and on the web. I can prepare lengthy articles and have completed projects requiring a large number of articles on a single subject. Astrology: As well as writing general astrological material, I have written Sun sign columns and horoscopes for a number of high circulation print magazines and for the web. I have also ghostwritten the work of other astrologers. I am currently President of the Astrological Lodge of London. Scripts: I have written scripts for phone lines as well as speeches. Research: I can conduct research on the web or through a major library. I am an experienced and speedy researcher, and able to find information that has eluded others.

I have also laid out ebooks, including for the Kindle. Indexing: I have prepared indexes less
