Listed in Proofreaders / Editors
I am a professional copyeditor and proofreader from the UK, with over 20 years’ experience, and I specialise in working with new and emerging independent authors.
Apart from having a meticulous eye for detail and an excellent understanding of punctuation, grammar and spelling, I am also (more importantly!) helpful, friendly and supportive.
I reply to all my messages quickly and honestly.
I really do read every single word.
I do not skim-read, cut corners or use a program to check my clients’ work.
I return all my work within budget and on time, every time.
I edit using Microsoft Word, and track the changes so that you can see the alterations that I make and accept or reject each one individually (should you so wish!).
I have an honours degree in English Literature and am an Intermediate Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading.
I have undertaken the following training:
– Editorial Report Writing
I have a website – www.mandawaller.co.uk – which will tell you more about how I work and the services that I provide.
Manda proof read my children’s book and I found her to be speedy, thorough, and insightful. I asked Manda just to proof read by book, but she went beyond that and gave a lot of helpful comments on the style and structure of what I had written.
It it a slightly nervy experience submitting your creation to some else’s critique, but Manda balances well encouragement and critical comments. I would definitely use her services again.
Thoroughly professional service. She made sure to understand our unique requirements prior to starting the project. Once we began the proofreading project, Manda was timely and stuck to the deadlines we agreed upon. She has a great eye for catching out errors in punctuation, grammar as well as identifying any potential improvements in the plot and characters themselves.
Would highly recommend to anyone who needs a reliable editor/proofreader at an affordable rate!
