It bothers me when I open a book and find it peppered with typos and inconsistencies in the plot. Nothing takes the fun out of reading faster than careless editing or lack of proofreading.
Everybody makes mistakes—they sneak in like mosquitoes through a bug screen—but most errors can be caught by a skilled editor or proofreader.
Since I founded Annette's Blue Pencil in 2018, many authors have trusted me with their manuscripts. Whether you need proofreading, story development consulting or copy/line editing, my services are tailored to what the author needs, and now include proofing translations from English to German.
I’m working with you to make your manuscript shine.
Praise for Annette's Blue Pencil
“I used Annette's Blue Pencil to proof my first attempt at a non-fiction historical book. Annette was excellent at correcting the small words that would improve the book to make the wording more concise, effective and consistent. She was also able to explain ways to make the overall book better – such as providing ideas for pulling my topic together without repetition and suggesting additions to add more interest to the book.
I would DEFINITELY give Annette's Blue Pencil Two Thumbs Up, Five Stars or an A+ rating.”
