Overview

I currently freelance for a couple Christian publishers and ministries and have worked with a Christian ministry to the Amish. I like to work on nonfiction manuscripts that have a Christian perspective and message. Biographies, church history, stories of revival, and inspirational and biblical messages are greatly needed today. I am glad to work on documents of many topics, though, from gardening to life lessons to history.

You have a story to tell. You have a message that others need to hear. Let me help you improve your manuscript by keeping your voice and message while checking your manuscript for consistency, clarity, and grammatical accuracy.

I edit using Microsoft Track Changes so you can see what changes are made and so you can read my comments, suggestions, and questions right in the document.

I use the Chicago Manual of Style and the Christian Writer's Manual of Style as my main guides, and I use serial (Oxford) commas.
___________________________________________

I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to work with Paul on my manuscript. He was timely, accessible, and exceeded my expectations in every area of the editing and proofreading process. I could tell that he is someone who is invested in the projects he commits to. This was evidenced by the extent of his corrections and the depth of his comments and suggestions. My manuscript would not be anywhere near as accessible without his work. I will be sure to call upon him for any future writing projects I might engage in.

Paul Miller is a top-notch, eagle-eyed proofreader and copyeditor, and he's my go-to guy for the spit-polish needed to make a manuscript shine. His extensive knowledge of the Bible and style manuals means he makes corrections and tweaks with confidence, and he goes the extra mile to point out formatting inconsistencies. He turns his projects in on or before the due date, and to top it all off, he's engaging to work with. I highly recommend Paul!

Paul is an excellent editor, but more, an awesome person that goes over and beyond to ensure accurate final work. As a first time working with an editor, I did not know what to expect. I figured that an editor only does their best to ensure grammar is correct. Paul went way over and beyond my expectations. 1. He corrected all grammar issues as expected, then 2. He restructured sentences to ...
