Proofreading ... what is it?

  • children's books; (my niche)

  • online articles;

  • e-books;

  • manuscripts;

  • magazine articles;

  • short stories;

  • novels

  • advertisements;

  • email newsletters;

  • newspaper articles;

Proofreading is the last step before your written material is published and after the material has been edited. 


I will help by correcting:

  • misspelled words or typos; 

  • all punctuation;

  • repeated or incorrect word   usage; 

  • minor format issues;

  • capitalization;

  • subject-verb agreement;

  • grammar/sentence errors;

  • on request - minor rewrites.

A Little About Me

Hi there!  I am so excited to meet you!


Reading, proofreading, copyediting, and content writing are passions of mine. I love to help my clients by critiquing their work product and assisting them in producing their best-written piece possible. I do have twenty-plus years of experience auditing/proofreading documents, composing and proofreading manuals, and correspondence of all types. Since then, I have graduated on to my own freelance proofreading-copyediting-content writing business.  I would love to work my magic for you.

When I needed a proofreader to look over my website copy, Marty provided high-quality services. She has a keen eye and was able to answer my questions about some specific spelling and grammar concerns I had. I recommend Marty when you need to ensure your writing or copy is as polished as it can be. Thanks, Marty!

Service Review














Marty is quick, responsive, and friendly. I can publish my article with confidence thanks to her help!


 Marty has been proofreading textbooks for us for almost a year and has done a wonderful job.  She has not missed a deadline given to her — in fact usually gets it to us a head of time.  We work with a lot of clients needing proofreading services and those Marty has worked for has never had a complaint, which is a good sign in our business. Unfortunately, we usually only hear from them when they have complaints.  Marty is very thorough and pleasant to work with.

As you reflect on your time in Accounting Benefits, Benefits & Services, and Agency Compensation, do it knowing that you made a positive impact on each one of those areas and have established relationships that will continue. Your work ethic, attention to detail, customer focus,  and never-ending diligence to create process efficiencies exemplified your constant approach to be "Remarkable". Above that, the respect your peers & leadership have for you demonstrates the amount of appreciation each one has for the person you are and the work you did.

"It was such a pleasure working with Marty who seemed to have all the answers to our questions about proofreading. I would highly recommend her who made it all so easy and painless. Thank you Marty.

Anthony Jones

Marty made the whole process of book proofreading much easier. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a truly qualified proofreader. I could not have done it without her expert knowledge and professional process during the whole writing process.
