I love working as a copy editor. For me, it's a way to learn all the time while using my skills to ferret out any inconsistencies or errors. Your content---whether books, academic papers, or other copy---is a reflection of you, and together we'll ensure that only the most polished writing reaches your readers.

If you want to perfect your content for publication, you are in the right place.

REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

"For over a decade, Lindsay has provided excellent copyediting services to the Taylor & Francis Journals account. She is versed in the style conventions embraced by various academic disciplines, including the behavioral and medical sciences. The work she completes—always in a timely fashion—shows the meticulous attention of an expert copyeditor. Lindsay, moreover, has proven to be flexible, amenable to, on occasions, last minute changes of assignment. I recommend her services highly."

---Head of Copyediting, Taylor & Francis Group

"Lindsay is everything I would want in a proofreader/copy editor: She’s focused, intelligent, intuitive, and meticulous. She’s so good that I don’t feel the need to check her work – and that’s a huge compliment coming from a former copy editor and obsessive editor. In addition to the right skills, Lindsay brings a great attitude to every job: She’s eager and happy to work. She always delivers when promised and never disappoints. If I didn’t like her so much, I would keep all this my little secret to ensure her availability when we need her."

Lindsay did an excellent job editing my 50,000+ word non-fiction book!
