WHAT FOX AND FLOWERS PROOFREADING OFFERS

Fox and Flowers Proofreading's editorial services can be found below with details listed in each section.

All services come with a free sample reading of 750-1000 words for manuscripts and book proposals (depending on the overall word count), and 250 words for online/professional content. I will respond within two business days to further discuss the project in question, pricing, and the anticipated deadline. 

I use the following programs to go through documents and make my edit suggestions and/or mark-ups: Microsoft Word using Track Changes; making notes within PDFs in Adobe Acrobat Reader; or with editing suggestions in Google Docs. I am familiar with the Chicago Manual of Style and Associated Press Stylebook.

Additional charges will incur if you request a rush order for your project.
