EFA Florida Chapter Coordinator
Editor | Proofreader | Project Manager | Translator | Writer
I am first and foremost an editor. I understand how much time and effort writers put into their work, and I enjoy working with authors to prepare their manuscripts for publication. I edit and translate fiction and nonfiction manuscripts, screenplays, journal articles, scholarly monographs, dissertations, textbooks, and more.
For book ideas, I carefully evaluate the premise(s), identifying weak points and making suggestions for story and character development. If you have a work in progress, I can assist with areas that need improvement or further development. For completed manuscripts, I extensively review the premise, plot structure, pacing, characters, dialogue, and marketability.
I perform developmental, line, and copy editing using tracked changes and comments. My revisions will not conflict with your voice as an author.
Once your work is in its final layout, I review it for the basics, such as typos and punctuation, as well as for heading and chapter inaccuracies, spacing issues, and other common layout problems. If your editor kept a style sheet, I review it to make sure the text is consistent with the style sheet.
I offer Spanish to English and English to Spanish translation. I also edit and proofread in Spanish.
I can assist you with co-writing or ghost writing your manuscript. I also write magazine and web articles and business copy for corporations. I do not participate in unethical practices, such as writing academic papers or college entrance essays.
It is an exciting time to be in publishing. Many self-publishing companies are opening the doors for new voices, but they do not offer high-quality editorial solutions. An EFA editor will ensure that your work is top notch prior to editing.
