I specialize in proofreading and copyediting for independent authors, especially those who are new to the process of self-publishing.
My portfolio includes projects from the following genres:
biography and memoir
erotica, pornography and adult fiction
general fiction, both contemporary and historical
mixed martial arts
mystery, action and adventure fiction
science-fiction, fantasy and speculative fiction
thriller, espionage and suspense
I've also proofread fiction and creative non-fiction texts for publisher clients such as Constable & Robinson; Salt Publishing; Little, Brown; Pan Macmillan and Hardie Grant.
Social sciences and humanities
I worked in-house at SAGE Publications (a leading independent academic and education publisher) for 13 years. There, I learned the language of social sciences and humanities publishing.
Clients such as SAGE, Edward Elgar, Kogan Page, Polity Press and Out of House Publishing Solutions (on behalf of Cambridge University Press, Taylor & Francis and Manchester University Press) have repeatedly commissioned me to proofread books from the following disciplines:
communication and media studies
education and study skills
environment and development
gender studies, sexualities, queer theory and women's studies
law and criminology
organization studies, management and business
philosophy and ethics
political science and international relations
psychology and counselling
race, ethnicity and area studies
research methods and statistics
social policy and health care
theology and religion
