Premier Proofing specializes in copyediting and proofreading any kind of writing on the web—but particularly all of the awesomeness written by life coaches, bloggers, and those in the personal development field.
I will take your blog posts, e-books, print books, newsletters, and web copy and zap them with the magical power of grammar so that your audience can hear you better.
With my ultra-quick turnaround, you’ll have your writing back speedy quick (usually within 24-48 hours or less) so you can hit “publish” with pride!
Clear, professional, accurate web copy, newsletters, blogs, and e-books are a critical part of sharing your message with the people who need you.
Potential clients—whether they’re aware of it or not—use your writing as one of the ways of determining if you’re an expert and someone they can trust with their money and time. If you want to be taken seriously and given a chance, the writing you present to the world needs to be not only heartfelt and convincing, but accurate and polished.
Having a professional proofread your writing is one of the fastest, easiest, and least expensive things you can do to help distinguish yourself from thousands of others in a very competitive field. (more…)
There’s a lot of confusion and inconsistency out there when it comes to rates for editing and proofreading. You can find people who charge by the hour, the word, the page, or the project—with all kinds of add-ons, minimum fees, and upcharges to make things even more complicated.*

“I do most of my own editing because I write very much as I speak and my audience is used to the occasional typo and “Timism.” However, when I was launching my premium product, Aligning With Your Core Values—which was aimed at a bigger market—I knew I needed to be a bit more professional. Lynn did an awesome job and even my designer commented on how well she had done because editing my writing style isn’t easy. Great to work with, very professional and timely—what more could you ask for?” — Tim Brownson, Life Coach at A Daring Adventure
I must admit to a mad grammar-nerd crush on Steven Pinker (crazy Einstein hair and all!). I was first introduced to his work in a fascinating class I took in college, “Language Acquisition and Processing,” which taught us how children learn language. One of the texts used in the class was Pinker’s The Language Instinct: [...]
It’s amazing how much word geekiness can be found on Facebook….this one cracks me up every time I look at it. (You may be saying “Wow, it doesn’t take much to amuse that girl!” Yeah, you’d be right.)
