Don’t get bogged down with the process and the price. Just write, already–put the pen to paper, start clicking away on that keyboard…use a crayon and the back of a cocktail napkin, if that’s all you have on hand…just get it done. Getting your thoughts on paper is always the hardest part–so put your creative energy into that process, rather than focusing on good grammar, polished prose, and prohibitively priced proofreaders. Once you’re happy with how you’ve expressed your idea, or made your point, or whatever it is you are trying to accomplish with your writing, send it to me. I’ll work my magic–a.k.a. my expert copyediting and proofreading skills–and your project will emerge as clean, as precise, and as easy-to-read as humanly possible–without losing your personality and voice.

My particular specialty is in-depth copyediting of manuscripts–novels, memoirs, non-fiction, etc.–but I am no less skilled at small-scale projects, websites, and blog posts. I offer light proofreading services as well as deep copyediting, and I enjoy every minute of it. I am passionate about what I do, and I strongly feel that when you love your job, the results of your labor are always stellar!

Also, any editor worth her salt is also a strong writer–and if you are looking for an experienced content writer for your website, I’m your girl.

Please take a look at some of my feedback here:

You’ll also find examples of my content writing here:

“Deana did an excellent job doing all I asked of her. While she can certainly and is most capable of meeting whatever timeline you ask of her, it would be in your best interest to allow her allocated time to go through your manuscript. With time she made my manuscript very streamlined, the ebb and flow were excellent and she caught everything that needed improving. I feel she is probably the best-kept secret on this site and I not only plan on utilizing her services again but should I be fortunate enough to have excellent fortune with my book, I will see to it that she no longer needs this site and have her work with me exclusively..”–38k-word novel manuscript, December, 2018

“I needed this project turned around fast and Deana got it done well ahead of the timeline…without compromising quality. She also took the initiative to make suggestions and tweaks that made the sales copy more compelling.Working with Deana on this project was a pure pleasure; I enjoyed working with her and I’m looking forward to doing so again on future projects.”–E. J. Ogenyi, May 2018
