New venture.

Welcome to my new blog, primarily dedicated to my editing work. I’ve recently signed on as freelance editor for Zacton Press, a manuscript appraisal company based in Australia. The owner is a dear friend of mine, and quite an accomplished author himself. When he brought up the idea of editing for Zacton Press, I honestly couldn’t say no. He’s great to work with, professionally and personally.

In addition to the work I’ll be doing with Zacton Press, I’m going to start branching out into freelance editing. I currently edit for two of my publishers, and in the past, I’ve edited for an online review website. I’m proficient in Microsoft Office and OpenOffice, and can work with many common file types. I’m knowledgeable in MLA, AP, and Chicago Manual of Style formats; and my books span several genres and cross-genres.

In addition to information on my editing, I’ll post tips and tricks of the trade; plus things to help authors polish their work, be it a research paper, a newspaper article, or a novel. So have a look around, and I hope you find something useful here.
