Hi, I'm Deborah, I'm a proofreader who works with authors, podcast owners and businesses to make sure their written content is as clear and correct as it can be; so they have more time to do what they do best - their job!

Proofread and copy-edit of a steamy erotic short story by Veronica Barrett. Available on Kindle Unlimited and Amazon.

Formatting for e-publication was also done for the client.

The multi-page directory of artists was integral to the marketing material for Open Studios West Berkshire & North Hampshire. Attention to detail was required for both the text and the image elements. As part of a volunteer team, I enjoyed this project very much and completed it every year from 2003 to 2018.

I thoroughly enjoyed proofreading the informative yoga website owned by Christel Wellness Yoga. It's always satisfying to ensure that written content is accurate and free of errors, particularly when it comes to a website that aims to educate and inform visitors. The attention to detail and quality of the content on the site made the task a pleasure. Overall, it was a great experience to be part of such a valuable resource for yoga enthusiasts.
