EDITING: Continuing on from last month, with the update of The Marriage Certificate, I am now at the stage of proofreading a proof copy of the printed book. This involves checking for any last-minute typographical errors and layout issues, and amending those before the book is approved for publication.

CPD: When time permits, I am continuing with the series of online courses offered by The PTC, and have recently begun Editorial Project Management.

AVAILABILITY: Unfortunately, I am currently unavailable to undertake projects with new clients.

EDITING: For the past month, I have been updating a novel I had previously edited and that was self-published in 2013 by the author. The Marriage Certificate, by Stephen Molyneux, will be republished in paperback and as an e-book, again using Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP). The original publication has been re-edited, re-typeset, and a new cover has been designed (by Christine Hammacott).  The new manuscript and cover have both been uploaded to KDP, and I am in the process of checking the online proof copy to ensure that the layout of the book appears correct, before ordering copies of the book for proofreading. Once proofreading has been carried out, and any corrections made, the book can ultimately be published.

CPD: Also, this month, I signed up for a series of online courses offered by The Publishing Training Centre (PTC). A total of fifteen! They should keep me occupied for a while. These courses cover different aspects of publishing; some of which will not be directly relevant to me as a freelance editor, but will provide useful background information.  So far, I have already completed two courses: Introduction to Publishing, and A Commissioning Editor's Guide to Working with Authors.

AVAILABILITY: Unfortunately, I am currently unavailable to undertake projects with new clients.
