Copy editing and Proofreading Services
One thing I've learned in walking through this internet world, all of us need a good editor. No matter who we are, sometimes we just need a fresh pair of eyes. I'd like to help you make your next project the best it can be. Whether you're planning to submit it to traditional publishers, or looking to self-publish, I can help you find those errors that sneak in to any manuscript.
Entails spell check, proper word usage, scanning for double words, and occasional suggestions for clearing up meaning or refining sentence structure.
This service is meant for those manuscripts that have already been gone over by beta-readers, content editors, etc., but needs a final polish.
I have experience publishing in several genres, as well as a broad general knowledge of many areas from marketing to elder care, child rearing, and education. I've been an avid reader for many years. Some of my favorite genres have been Christian romance, mystery, suspense, historical, and western. I can certainly help you with your editing needs.
I offer a free 1,000 word edit so you can see if we will work well together.
Projects will be accepted on a case by case basis. I edit any Christian fiction, and non-fiction books, as well as children's and middle-grade Christian or secular fiction. Secular fiction will also be considered, but only clean reads.
For further details and price packages, please contact me or leave a comment here and we'll get back to you.

"I am a writer of fiction. That I do well.
Proofreading and editing? Not so much, and without that final polish, I looked...amateurish.
Such was my position until Sherry Chamblee got a hold of my stories.
She not only proofed my books for typos, but also edited to find inconsistencies in the stories. Things as a writer I didn’t notice because...well I wrote it, of course it makes sense to me.
Sherry professionally corrected my manuscript to make it reader worthy without destroy my writer's self-esteem."

“I was very impressed by the services provided by Sherry Chamblee. In fact, I plan on referring my fellow colleagues to her site if they need any books, or documents edited/ proofread in the future. Sherry, Thank you so much for your assistance with my less than perfect writings. Your proofreading and editing greatly helped the readability of my work. I appreciate your strong attention to detail. I would confidently recommend you to anyone needing assistance polishing their work. Sherry Chamblee has edited several books for me and she is wonderful. I am completely satisfied with the editing, proofreading, and suggestions. Good, timely and reliable service. I have never been very good at writing and I am even worse at proofreading. I love the fact that I have a second set of eyes to look over my writing. I will be returning again! Thank you very much!”
