NEWSFLASH from author, Kevin Cooper 😃
I am offering new services folks!
I will edit any genre be it a novel, novella or even a collection of poetry and/or short stories.
My qualifications are M.Ed with English as a subject area. I have lectured English at the college level as well as other subjects. I’ve also been a reading mentor with children’s books and adolescent literature. I’ve authored several works which include memoirs, YA fantasy, fictional short stories, and poetry, and am well acquainted with the self-publishing procedures.
Depending on each individual manuscript and one’s needs, my editing can include:
- punctuation, compound words and hyphenation, possessive nouns, use of apostrophes, capitalisation, correcting inconsistent tenses, and spelling
- identifying repetition
- suggesting alternatives to overuse of passive verbs and gerunds/participles
- highlighting clichés
- comments on dialogue and structure, and highlighting areas of strengths and weaknesses
- suggested rewrites of individual sections of prose
The style of a work is completely up to the author.
