What is that one thing you want from your editor? Editors look out for grammar, structure, style, punctuation, and so on--that's a given. But if you had to concoct everything an editor does in a phrase, what would that be?

It's probably (drumroll)โ€”produce the best possible version of the creatorโ€™s work.

Creators, authors, and writers are the ๐’—๐’†๐’‰๐’Š๐’„๐’๐’†๐’” to change. Just because the noise is ๐’„๐’๐’‚๐’๐’Œ๐’š, the paint is ๐’˜๐’๐’“๐’ ๐’๐’–๐’•, the engine is ๐’–๐’๐’ˆ๐’“๐’†๐’‚๐’”๐’†๐’…, and the tires are ๐’‡๐’๐’‚๐’• (or tyres, wink)โ€”doesnโ€™t mean the inherent value of that vehicle is lost.

๐Ÿ“จ๐Ÿ“ญMy editorial services are focused on impact-oriented message. I will see to it that your writing accomplishes EXACTLY what was intended, who it was intended for, and whether the arguments are other than logical, legible, rhetorical, or lyrical.

โšก๏ธŽProfessional Highlightsโšก๏ธŽ
๐ŸŒŸ 10+ years of editing and proofreading experience with theses, business books, STEM textbooks, non-fiction books, blogs, and brand copies with 5-STAR RATINGS and EXCEPTIONAL FEEDBACK
๐ŸŒŸ Seasoned non-fiction/creative non-fiction expert
๐ŸŒŸ Worked with multi-billion dollar companies and their CEOs, FORBES writers, authors, professors, PhD students, and scholars
๐ŸŒŸ An stickler for accuracy and a Grammar enthusiast
๐ŸŒŸ Traditional Publishing Consultant: book proposals, agent letters, book editing, developmental editing, proofreading, references, and indexing.

You know, academic writers sometimes get so tangled up in their complex sentences that it's like they're lost in the weeds, desperately looking for their magic wand. So, when I chat with academic writers, I typically ask them this question: Are you aiming to write just for your fellow professors to decode, or do you dream of getting your work published one day? And they get the point.

So, these are the services I offer:

โ› Copyediting: Will watch out for grammatical range and accuracy, cohesion, coherence, style guide adherence, facts, and so on, and will scrutinize for errors in style and structure

โ› Line editing: Will charge your writing with power words, trim the fluff, correct grammar and punctuation, rephrase sentences, fill in transitions, recharge dialogues, maintain consistencies, facilitate flow, and most importantly, ensure legibility.

โ› Developmental Editing: I will watch the comprehensive coverage of the subject: there's a lot of give-and-take involved in dev editing. First, I'll receive your manuscript either in its bud or toward maturity. All you have to do is be ready to hear the harshest criticism of your work. Just kidding! Keep an open heart to major revisions of your work, including the structure, outline, themes (if any), etc. Trust me, it's worth every bit.

โ› Proofreading: This is the final stage. I'll read your work letter by letter, word by word, and sentence by sentence (word by word is fine :-D) for any crept-in errors.

โ› Reference Style: For academic papers, I'll fix any style inconsistencies and update them. I'm familiar with APA (7th Ed.), MLA (8th/9th Ed.), Chicago Manual of Style (17th Ed.), Harvard Style, New Hart's (Oxford; 2014, 2nd Ed.), AP style (2019) guides, and American Sociological Association (ASA).

โ› Traditional Publishing Assistance: A growing number of writers are self-publishing these days, though it's something many in the industry dread. It gives you all the leverage over your book's finance, marketing, and distribution. However, you can always stay off the hassles of self-publishing. Why not pitch your idea to an agent? ๐Ÿ’Œ All it takes is a query letter, right?

โ˜ข๏ธ Not exactly. Traditional publishing is an arduous route, and only the right advice and tons of patience will take you through it.

I can help edit your book in its preliminary round so you can shine in the eyes of the acquisitions editor. Also, I can assist you in crafting agent letters and book proposals, catching up, bargaining, and striking the deal.

๐ŸŒŸTESTIMONIAL ALERT๐ŸŒŸ
โšก๏ธŽA University Professor:
"Umesh is an excellent copyeditor. I've worked with several freelance copyeditors before. I'm not a terrible writer--previous copyeditors found errors, of course, but they tended to be basic things, mainly things I could have caught myself if I read the manuscript carefully. In contrast, Umesh is a professional copyeditor. He found mistakes I definitely wouldn't have found, . . .did not know were mistakes. [...] He also happens to be familiar with different writing and citation styles."

โšก๏ธŽA multi-billion-dollar company's CEO:
"I recommend Umesh's service to everyone, especially the ones who only trust native editors."
