I have 20+ years' experience in the publishing industry as an editor.
I know when to look at the big picture and when to focus on the minute details.
I take advantage of opportunities to teach you to strengthen weaknesses in your writing, rather than simply fix them for you.
I communicate with you throughout the project.
I speak the language on technical projects, with a background that includes multiple technical degrees and certifications plus years of web, database and software development experience.
Tia's diverse experience has given her exposure to a wide variety of editorial styles and developed her ability to employ a consistent editorial tone, style and structure appropriate to each audience.

I love how Tia's choice for words are so accurate. It is absolutely amazing how I wrote something one way and she made it sound more professional and exciting to read! I appreciated how she never made me feel like "just a client." I felt like she was more of a partner due to her warm, inviting spirit and her dedication to my book's success. It was as if we knew each other personally.
I hereby crown Tia Ross 'Grammar Queen.' Her copyediting expertise helped to increase the pace and improve the flow of my novel. In addition, her straight-to-the-point comments and inquiries, by-products of her acute attention to detail, helped to further enhance my manuscript.
As a beginning writer, I'd heard several scary stories about editing services and was a bit leery with whom I trusted with my work. I also wanted an editor that truly understood African-American writing. Tia proved to be a valuable resource for me, as well as a one-stop shop for other literary services, including career advisement, help with finding an agent and information about publishing houses and printers. Her eagle eye has saved me much embarrassment! I can't believe the mistakes I missed even after reading my work myself numerous times before sending it to Tia.
