Credentials Are Important

In addition to writing and editing expertise, an editor with a wide range of life experiences can more effectively advise you and understand your writing needs.

My Mission:  

To provide every client with a timely and cost-effective finished product that is second to none and far better than it has to beóone that will assure me of repeat business.

  I'm a freelance copy writer, copy editor, proofreader, and ghostwriter, primarily serving small businesses and authors of fiction and nonfiction books, but I enjoy helping writers at any level of need (people like you). My company is celebrating fifteen years in 2016 as ACE Copyediting.com. I have been the copy editor for two print magazines, one online "magazine," several small businesses in both the United States and foreign countries, and have many repeat clients, including attorneys, physicians, scientists, small business owners/managers, and writers of blogs and website content.

  I'm a published novelist and a ghostwriter of many books and articles.  I know about the importance of an effective query letter, a dazzling synopsis, proper formatting, first-page hooks, and nearly-perfect grammar, punctuation, and spelling. I know the ins and outs of the current trade publishing world, e-book services, and self-publication through POD and Indie publishers, Amazon's CreateSpace print book and ebook Kindle Direct Publishing services, and others.  

  I'm a certified paralegal.  I know about corporate law, civil litigation, real estate law, legal research, wills, probate, family law, and demonstrative evidence. I can effectively turn "legalese" into easily understood English.

  I'm a former teacher of English and speech.  I have a solid background in the rules of grammar, proper punctuation and formal writing. I don't "guess" or go by what "sounds better." I go by the rule book of your choice, including the Chicago Manual of Style, MLA Handbook, AP Stylebook and others.

  I'm a former executive assistant to the officers of a medical information corporation in the Silicon Valley (purchased in a merger). I performed extensive writing, rewriting and copyediting of every type of business document, including software manuals, employee manuals, brochures, websites, business plans, and business correspondence. I know the needs of small businesses or large corporations and what works best and why.

  I'm a former executive assistant/office manager to the officers of a start-up high-tech corporation in the Silicon Valley (purchased by AT&T).  I set up and wrote the documents for twenty-eight file systems, including those for human resources (HR), Board of Directors, investors and employee files. I know how a business is run and how the "players" interact with each other.

  I'm a former small business owner and rental property owner.  I understand wholesale and retail sales, contracts, effective advertising and company documents, employee and client relationships and the nitty-gritty of what makes a company successful and valued. I can effectively write or edit your company's documents including employee evaluations, website material and blogs. Or, I can ghostwrite effective articles published under your name in your industry journals.

  I'm a goal-setter.  I continuously set new goals and work hard to achieve them.

  I'm an activist. I enjoy new challenges, like learning the facts about major social media tools (i.e., Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, and Pinterest) that have become required marketing programs for every business and every author, and why the quality of personalized customer service and relationships can rapidly influence future success :(or failure).

   I'm a consummate professional.  I don't take any client or any project lightly or for granted.  I give nothing but my best.

  I'm a quality writer and copy editor.  I will help you achieve a more satisfying personal success by carefully and expertly copyediting, critiquing or ghostwriting your work. So . . .

Letís build a partnership for success.

ACE Copyediting.com produces final written products that are better than they have to be.

Look at your work. Look at mine. Then call.
I work by the hour. By the day. By the job. Whatever.

Please contact me via my email address. Since every writer has a different style and level of writing skills and each project is unique and ranges from short to long, easy to difficult/technical, and may involve some or extensive research for factual accuracy, I can't provide even an 'estimate' of my editing or ghostwriting fee unless I see a "sample" or all of your project. Thanks for understanding.
