Welcome to the website of Transformations Editing, an independent editing company specializing in the editing and proofreading of nonfiction books, and to my new blog, Metamorphosis.
This new site is intended to be more dynamic and content rich than the original site. To that end, I've decided to begin blogging. You might think that this is a natural choice for a word person and something I should have started long ago, and in a way, you'd be right. Until now, though, I wasn't sure I was ready to jump into the conversation. There are zillions (all right, maybe thousands) of bloggers writing on topics similar to ones I'll cover here: editing, writing, language, and freelancing. What can I contribute that will be different and valuable?
The answer: Posts based on my own experiences editing and proofreading books, working with clients, and marketing my services. If you're a fellow independent editor or proofreader, I hope you'll find that we have much in common and much to talk about. If you're a book author or aspiring writer, I hope that my posts will help you as you prepare your manuscript for an editor. And if you are a staff editor, I hope that you'll spend a few minutes learning about how Transformations Editing can help your busy editorial team.
