Introducing “Flubs 2 Fixes”

f2ftake4_edited-2I am pleased to announce that as of today, Tuesday, October 1, 2013, I am launching my freelance copy-editing and proofreading service for writers! Yes, this is the news I hinted at yesterday.

As I say in my introduction page (in the drop-down menu above), have you ever hit send on a document, or put a manuscript in the mail, only afterwards seeing a glaring (or not so glaring) error? Your heart sank, and you thought, “I really flubbed that one.” The problem is that we get so used to our own writing that we see the word as we expect it to be, rather than seeing the typo or the misused noun or verb. Then there is grammar, with all its twists, turns, and exceptions. It’s hard to catch all those things in your own manuscript. You need a fresh pair of eyes to look impartially at your document.

Whether you are self-publishing a book, preparing a manuscript for submission, revamping major parts of your website, or [you fill in the blank], your writing needs to be as error-free, clear, and grammatically impeccable as possible – it needs to SHINE.

I can help you take your writing to a polished product that will create the impression you are striving for. I can help take your manuscript from flubs to fixes.

I’m looking forward to working with writers of all levels and genres in this new enterprise. To learn what services are currently available, go to the drop-down menu under Services for Writers, and click on SERVICES. For information on rates and procedures for requesting my copy-editing or proofreading services, select RATES & PROCEDURES from the drop-down menu above.

I would like to thank my friend, Jan S., who thought up the name “Flubs 2 Fixes.” She’s a clever one!

I am also grateful to Emma Walton Hamilton for her encouragement and for providing my first testimonial (see TESTIMONIALS page in the drop-down menu).
