Professional Freelance Technical, Business & Book Editing & Proofreading Services
You want your writing to be noticed for your ideas and impact, not your mistakes. Typos, poor grammar, redundancies, misspellings, improper punctuation, and faulty formatting can embarrass you; destroy your credibility; cost you clients, customers, and readers; and jeopardize your livelihood. It’s not only foolish to finalize any print or digital publication or presentation without having a skilled editor or proofreader review it first, it’s also costly.
Writing errors can result in undesirable outcomes. That’s why hiring a skilled editor for content scrutiny is so important. As your editor, my goal is to get your writing noticed for your ideas and impact, not your mistakes—without changing your voice.

I chose Tia as my editor because of her leadership and track record in the literary community and because I strongly believed she would understand and appreciate my story. I was absolutely impressed by the professionalism, attention to detail, and overall excellent execution of the entire process of working with her. The best part was the accurate copyediting and suggested revisions. I felt like I learned so much about fiction writing and the proper and effective way to use grammar to enhance my writing.
I spent a lot of time researching talented Black freelance editors. As a result of the research I did, I knew Tia would be good. She is the best. Initially, I was anxious about how much of my manuscript was going to be cut, chopped, or re-arranged during the editing process. She listened to my preferences and generously indulged me during the “getting to know you” part of the process until I no longer felt anxious at all. Her competence and professionalism made it easy to trust her with my work, plus she is well-organized, responsive, and kind.
Tia's honesty, expertise, and keen eye truly stood out. The best part of the service was the professionalism, great communication, and amazing copyediting. I am very pleased with the service and quality of work that was performed on my manuscript.
I was a little anxious at first; I didn't want my voice erased. I was immediately relieved to see that she heard my voice. Tia got me. She called me on my BS though, and I sometimes laughed at the questions she posed as we improved my work. I learned a lot from her explanations with the edits and appreciated the research that she put into her work. By the end, I had a better grasp of tenses and a much cleaner and more concise story.
