DeAnna Burghart - Editor

Sugar Land, TX, United States

I have over 15 years of experience in remote collaboration in both web and print. I would love to help you with your next manuscript.

Overview

I'm an editor and content manager with extensive experience in remote collaboration on both web and print publications, and I would love to help you with your next manuscript. I can assist with everything from basic proofreading to light developmental editing.

I always provide a test edit of a few pages on longer projects so you can get a feel for my style, and so I can give you a more accurate estimate of the project's total cost. My first rule is "Never Do Violence." You will never have to wonder why I made a change or puzzle out an ambiguous query, and I will always respect your wishes and voice, while helping you find and match the right tone and voice for your desired audience. I am not the author, merely an assistant.
