Services for Authors

I provide detailed, line by line copy editing of novels, nonfiction books, articles, essays, abstracts, papers, poetry, and personal websites. 

For a free sample edit, please send two, double-spaced pages as a Word or RTF attachment to skylarburris@yahoo.com. I offer this free service so that authors can evaluate the type of editing I provide without any cost. When I return your edited sample, I will provide you with a quote for your entire project.
