Proofreading is the discipline in which I specialize.
Not only will I check your book or document for spelling and punctuation errors, but I will also weed out any inconsistencies. If Fyodor Dostoevsky is referred to on page 6, I will notice if he is called Dostoyevsky on page 143.
I can also compile a back-of-the-book index for your book or document. I recently completed the index for The Strange Career of a Regency Physician, Charlotte Frost’s excellent biography of Sir William Knighton. I am happy to work to your specified style and guidelines.
I can produce crosswords, wordsearches and sudoku to individual specifications.
Please visit the guest constructor section of www.bestcrosswords.com to play my crosswords online for free.
I write puzzles for The Meon Valley News, and contributed 180 brainteasers to a jumbo puzzle book produced by Autumn Publishing.
