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.

Manuscript Development
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.

Editing
I perform developmental, line, and copy editing using tracked changes and comments. My revisions will not conflict with your voice as an author.

Proofreading
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.

Translation
I offer Spanish to English and English to Spanish translation. I also edit and proofread in Spanish.

Writing
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.
