elevate your content

When you write, you embark on a creative path that begins with the inception of an idea and blossoms into polished prose that expresses that idea to its fullest glory. The savvy writer makes it look easy to readers. But you know it’s anything but! That’s why it’s important to assemble a team who can work with you throughout the process.

Our Editing & Proofreading Services

Line Editing — Content editing

Creative content, writing style, and language use at the sentence and paragraph level. (e.g. Clarity, fluidity, and pleasurable to read. Atmosphere, emotion, tone.)

Finalizing Your Content

The ideal steps involved in taking your content from concept to creation to publication depend upon the type of content you’re writing. I recommend lining up a “success team.”

What type of expert should you choose for each stage of the process, and how much should you do on your own? Base the answer to this question on your skill level and your budget, but at the very least, consider hiring a copyeditor and proofreader. Your manuscript will benefit from a fresh pair of expert eyes—a professional who’s just as invested in your success as you are but can maintain a professional distance.

What Our Happy Clients Say

To finally become a published author, sometimes, it only takes one person who believes in your talent to help guide your big dream into amazing reality. For me, that one person was my friend and editor, Heather Murata. She encouraged me while I wrote and then skillfully line-edited, copyedited, and proofread my baby, my novel.

Like my own personal cheerleader, Heather hoorayed my successes. When needed, she pointed out grammar mistakes, correcting them clearly, yet with a friendly touch. If my setting lacked the five senses, Heather was the voice whispering in my ear—what did it smell like? When passive voice crept in—threatening to derail my sentences—she red-flagged the wordage.

Her carefully-considered suggestions made my writing strong—the result: smooth-flowing chapter after chapter, all the way to THE END. Upon completion, I gained confidence in a well-written book. I owe that confidence to Heather.

I’m so pleased I chose Heather to proofread and copyedit my novel. Her knowledge and expertise go far beyond the written word. I highly recommend Heather Murata’s services to anyone looking to polish up their words and allow them to shine.
