My company, James Literary Services, has been operating at its most professional and ethical best. Please check out our LinkedIn profile with accompanying recommendations from past clients and links to my published nonfiction books at http://www.linkedin.com/in/russelldjames. Also please check out our website at http://www.jamesliteraryservices.com/ and our Facebook Fan Page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/James-Literary-Services/259070614130976. I think you will see that we are the real thing!
I am including in the attachments my company's white paper, "Not Just Editing: What Is Literary Services?" for you to better understand us and what we do. But let me tell you a little about myself:
I am able to provide past work and references, if you'd like. When I edit, I not only proofread the book, but I also provide the author with content notes that discuss suggested changes in regard to characters, plot, themes, story lines, and such.
I hold two master's degrees and am an experienced editor.
I have written three peer reviewed books, the latest to be published in June, and many other publications, all of which I proofread extensively before sending for publication.
From 2002-2007 I owned and operated Cantadora Press and did all the editing and proofreading for all the books, pamphlets, and journal issues we published.
From 2008-2010, I taught college-level American history courses and spent a lot of my time teaching my students how to write properly, including: grammar, punctuation, spelling, style, and diction. Their semester-long projects entailed many drafts of paragraphs and larger sections before final submittal.
Now that I own an editing business and have worked with freelancing sites like oDesk, Elance, Freelancer, and Guru, I have edited multiple books, articles, and Web sites for content. I have always delivered excellent quality editing for a great price. I deliver my product in the time limit specified in the contract.
I am a native US English speaker.
I feel that my twenty plus years of experience editing and proofreading my own projects and those of others make me an ideal candidate for your freelance editor position.
I hope you will consider me for this position and hire me. I can get started right away and my dependability means we can
work together for a long time.moreless
Hi jordancauser, I am a good choice for this project because I am a native English writer with superb spelling and grammar capabilities. I scored 100 percent on Freelancer's U.S. English Grammar test and have edited pieces for clients before. I have all five star feedbacks (including a recent one from another proofreading job) and can get this document perfected for you quickly. I will run the text through a grade level checker in addition to my proofreading, editing and tweaking service. My bid is based on the length of 40 pages and ensures the highest quality editing.moreless
