The Blue Pencil: Affordable professional proofreading done by a human being!
Hi, I’m Deborah a qualified proofreader with good attention to detail, I will review your project to find errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation, and consistency. I proofread a wide range of content including websites, newsletters, blogs, and marketing materials, for non-fiction and fiction writers.
My areas of interest include:
* Women’s health and fitness
* Gardening (my husband runs a landscaping business)
I work in US or UK English and use:
* Word ‘Track Changes’
* Google Docs ‘Suggesting mode’
* PDF ‘Commenting’
* CMOS with Merriam-Webster
* Oxford Style Manual (New Hart’s Rules)
I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Editing & Proofreading (CIEP) and completed training in General Proofreading: Theory and Practice. I can offer a calm head, a friendly approach, a flexible attitude and, when you require it, a fast turnaround. I always maintain your voice, deliver on budget, to the brief and to the deadline.
If you would like to know more about me, you can connect with me on Facebook, Instagram deborahtaylor_uk or LinkedIn, it would be great to hear from you.
