Tia Ross | Copyediting & Proofreading Services

The expert freelance literary, corporate & technical copyeditor your project needs


The first year of law school means legal writing 101, which for me meant many sleepless nights…until Tia. As an expert editor of everything from fiction to legal and business docs, Tia was able to help me not only in law school but in my professional pursuits after the bar. Tia’s professionalism, skill and talent have been invaluable to me and so many others that I have referred. Her quick turnaround and insightful feedback have made me a better lawyer and writer. If you have a project that needs editing, do yourself a favor and hire Tia Ross.
Detra Hicks, Esq.
One of the most courageous things I’ve ever done is to allow others to play voyeur to my most private thoughts by memorializing them in a series of books. I knew that I would be selling myself short if I did not entrust my work to an editor with the integrity, experience, and professionalism to make a good writer a great one--an editor like “the” incomparable Tia Ross. I say the name with reverence because that is how the news was received when I made mention of Tia to one of the local bookstore owners who carry my books. Her stellar reputation precedes her. Tia’s reliability, work ethic, and extraordinary skills as an editor are only surpassed by her generosity of spirit and her willingness to share her vast store of knowledge with others to ensure their success. I am a better writer because of her. Thank you, Tia, for your guidance. Thank you for sharing your resources. And thank you so very much for the fantastic job you do with my novels. If you are a serious writer and want to elevate a good manuscript to a great one, you need the best editor in the industry. You need Tia Ross.

Before I met Tia, trying to find an editor I could build a relationship with that understood my projects and maintaining my voice as a writer was a nightmare. Not only did Tia improve the readability of my book with her precise attention to detail and word usage, she helped me to identify my most common writing errors and taught me how to correct them.​
Ashley Sauls
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.

Tia Ross' editing skills are excellent! I own a small business and hired Ms. Ross to edit our store profile and the "About Us" section. She had the edits along with a partial rewrite to me within a couple of hours. Everything made total sense and I was very pleased and impressed with the outcome. I HIGHLY recommend Tia Ross!​
Neecha Mayfield
I embarked on novel writing in 2012 and have since published five books. Fear coupled with not knowing whether my novel writing would be a good work that would reflect top professional quality, I bounced around utilizing several editors. Tia Ross came highly recommended from a masterful writer who is among my favorite authors. Tia is not only a superb editor, but her writing coaching skills are beyond an appropriated definition. She takes your writing product and provides direct and honest feedback. While not just performing skilled editing work, she equally teaches you how to write more effectively. My only regret is not meeting Tia before 2016. Tia is now my only editing source and road map that I follow as I continue to write. Tia Ross is the best of the best!

Multi-tasking is Tia's special skill, and although she wears many hats, she does it all with quality and competence. She is also kind, gracious, and responsive—which I appreciate in a colleague/mentor—and is always willing to go out of her way to help someone out. I've encountered many shady individuals in the publishing biz, who are just out to make money off of naive, aspiring authors, but Ms. Ross is a woman of integrity who truly cares about the work she does and the people she works for.

I'm so glad I came across Ms. Tia Ross during my search. She transformed my manuscript into a work of art.

Tia's in-depth knowledge and skill was astonishing, but her attention to detail and customer service was even more extraordinary. I would recommend Tia's services to anyone in need. In fact, I already have.

Thank you for being my editor. I only wish that I had met you sooner. I was impressed by the depth of your edit. You pointed out things that made me want to hit myself in the hand, wondering why I did that.
