If there is a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, you must be the one to write it. —Toni Morisson
Greetings! I am assuming since you are here, you have a book in the works and hopes of getting it polished, published, and shared with the world. I am here to help. I’m Dedrie, a qualified and experienced copy editor and proofreader of fiction for independent/self-publishing authors. With a great attention to detail, meticulous work, and friendly guidance, your writing can be publish-ready in no time.
Opting for the self-publishing route, you can enjoy full control of the content of your book; that is, no “creative differences” to worry about with a traditional publisher. That being said, you also have the sole responsibility of producing polished work; work that is free of errors; errors that can very well spoil the enjoyment of your story for its readers.
You’ve created a story that deserves praise and acclaim, but maybe industry-standard grammar, punctuation, and spelling are not your strong suit. Maybe they are, but an author always needs a fresh set of eyes to review the work before putting it out for the world to see.
My primary concern is helping you create a book that your readers will love; a book without the distractions of errors and oversights. Keeping your voice, your style, your goals in mind, I will strive for consistency and clarity.
