Pendley's Pro Editing
Nonfiction, business, finance, education, real estate, health, self-help, YA, childrens
I've worked on everything from e-magazines, educational workbooks, and résumés, to self-improvement guides, B2B, and hundreds of presentations for Amazon conferences. Whether your book needs a copyedit, proofread, or an index, I will ensure it adds value to your hard work.
I spent 15 years in business, primarily in banking and finance, dabbled in real estate, property management, and a bit in the legal field. I earned an accounting degree but it was not my passion. Instead, I discovered language, books, and the written word fascinate me. I've completed several editing courses, earned a Specialized Certificate in Copyediting from UCSD, and completed UC Berkeley's course Indexing: Theory and Application.
My references will attest to my determination to accept nothing short of perfection in my work. I take pride in producing the most professional piece possible. I'm not happy unless you are happy. Please see my website for client comments.
Born and bred a California girl currently residing with my family not too far from the Mexican border, I’m quite familiar with common U.S. customs and practices as well as the Latino culture.
Please note: I do not read, edit, or index political, religious, erotica, horror, or supernatural material.
