Happy Holidays!

In this time of spiraling anxiety, I hope everyone can take a moment to connect, center yourself, enjoy time with family, have some nice food and drink, kick back…

It’s been a brute of a year!

However, I’m grateful to still be working with some great clients, including a print magazine that is still going strong and a prolific writer who sends me a long post-apocalyptic novel to proof every few months. The world has now come to resemble the plot of his books. I find it fascinating. Still, the zombies haven’t shown up yet…

Indie authors: Please let me know if I can help you with proofreading or editing in the new year. As a reminder, I offer 10 percent discounts for members of the Facebook group Wide for the Win. Or for anyone who mentions Kboards, since I had a long-running ad on that site. If you are a new client, feel free to use the discount to get a feel for my services. Plus, I offer a free sample of up to 1,000 words, though there may be time crunches when I won’t be able to get to it right away. Check out my rates and feel free to use the Contact or Rates form to get hold of me.

Thanks, and I look forward to assisting you with your projects in 2022!
