Review Business Writing or Book


10 per unit - Virtual OK - Posted Jan 18, 2017

Would you like another pair of eyes on the report or book you are writing? I am happy to give you feedback on flow, sentence structure, message clarity and emphasis and other areas that need revision. I have written business documents, training programs and books for over twenty years. I have also reviewed other people's writing.

I am not specifically an editor - although I can usually catch grammar and punctuation mistakes. My focus is more about how you are communicating your message, drawing in your audience, retaining interest and, in general, making sense in the communication.

If you are writing a book, I can read it and give you ideas on how to make it more interesting and how to tie ideas together. I prefer to work on non-fiction, but will definitely review your fiction book (depending on topic).

I review all types of documents - reports, communication of all types, newsletters, and training courses.
I can also review marketing material, website text, blogs, e-books, etc.

I specialize in words, not digits, so I won't check your calculations, but I can tell you if the document is laid out well or if it is ordered in a logical manner, if it is easy to read and understand and if the important points stand out.

I am happy to take a look at the document and tell you before we seal the deal if I think I would be a good review for you.

I can also write a book review for you on Amazon or other services, after reading the book, for an extra fee.

Here's what I don't do:
I cannot make recommendations on legal documents.
I don't review erotica, fantasy, scifi, or the occult.
I don't review college writing for APA or other style compliance
I'm not a standard editor.

I charge ten Simbi for each 500 word unit. (I am fairly generous, so I won't charge extra if it is 515 words!)

Training & Qualifications

I have been writing for over 35 years. I have written and reviewed business documents, such as those described above, and books for myself and other people.

I have a strong background in business writing and have managed national business operations that required all types of writing.

Availability & Preferences

Flexible - will contact you within 48 hours

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!
