Happy New Year!

Our new little guy is here, born last month making our family of four a family of five, and I’m ready to take on clients part time. If you or someone you know needs writing, research, or editing help, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send an email to rondabowen@writingresearchediting.com.

The new issue of Equanimity Magazine is out. Read about Teen Wolf’s Cory Saintgnue, the Peanuts Movie’s Rebecca Bloom, and Ben Lecomte’s coming journey across the Pacific Ocean.

I’ve been guest posting about sewing over at BWD Fabrics. Be sure to check their site out if you’re interested in sewing and crafts.

I’ve completed some more content writing for company websites including Mason’s Small Engine Repair and Cumberland Ace Hardware.

I edited a client’s abstract for a philosophy journal submission.

The Professional Editing Services I Offer My Clients

I offer many different editing services. Contact me today for a quote on my services to find out how I can help you with your dissertation, thesis, article, short story, or book project.

Editing services by Ronda Bowen

Typing and/or Formatting involves taking your manuscript and putting it into the preferred format. If you are submitting a manuscript or book proposal, self-publishing a novel or non-fiction book, or preparing a dissertation, this service saves you time.
Editor’s Analysis involves looking at your manuscript and determining what services your manuscript may require if you are unsure as to what it is your manuscript needs.
Proofreading for spelling errors, obvious grammatical errors, formatting problems, and typos helps you to appear professional and polished.
Copy Editing involves checking for errors in sentence structure, spelling, and punctuation. This service also includes checking to make sure your manuscript is consistent, clear, and as concise as possible.
Content Editing is an analysis of your fiction or non-fiction manuscript and it ensures your book is consistent throughout. This service looks at characters, plot points, argument structure and more.
Substantive or Developmental Editing is the most involved of my editing services. This service includes copy editing and proofreading at the end of the project, as well as a focus on the structure, marketability, plot (for fiction), argument (for non-fiction), etc. of your work..  This form of editing is interactive between editor and client. I read your work once and offer initial comments, then we work back and forth through comments and line editing to achieve your desired results.
Fact Checking goes through your manuscript to guarantee all information is accurate and accurately cited.
Bibliographical Editing involves going through your manuscript and ensures that every source you used has been accounted for and that your footnotes, end notes, and bibliography are in the proper format (APA, MLA, CMS, etc.)

I can help you in many ways. If you are stuck on a project and you are not sure what direction to take it in, having someone with experience perform an editor’s analysis can help you to understand the elements you might be lacking. If you are finished with your dissertation or thesis and want to make sure there are no typos or spelling errors before handing your project in to your advisory board, proofreading can help. If you keep a blog, you may want an editor to ensure that your entries look professional.Whether you need help with your self-published book project or you want to send sales letters free from grammatical errors, contact me today to set up your free half hour consultation session.I always work with your budget to ensure you get the editing assistance you need.

I will put the most recent information in your hands.

The first step in producing a quality writing project is obtaining quality research.

Things are picking up around here in Wichita, Kansas. I’ve been helping a few clients with their writing and editing projects. I edited a philosophy article to ready it for publication, I created written content for several websites, and I’ve been working on boosting my blogs, particularly Wining Wife™. I’ve even been working on a few interview-based articles for Equanimity Magazine, as well as continuing to help with fundraising efforts for this organization. While things have been busy with getting settled in, I am taking new writing and editing clients, so if you or someone you know needs a content marketer, writer, editor, researcher, or social media consultant, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

I’ve been working on building a new website that highlights my various projects. Right now, it is still in the construction phase, but it does have both my resume and CV  available on it. In the coming weeks, I will also add a list of publications, my portfolio with links to completed work, overviews of my various projects (Guess what! I do more than just writing and editing), and more. I also will be kicking off a blog there that showcases the various things I do – writing, photography, sewing and crafts, research projects, and more. The blog here will focus more on helping you with your content marketing, research, academic writing, and blogging projects. I’m excited about a few new projects I have on the horizon as well.

If you need a writer or editor for your project, please don’t hesitate to contact me. In your email, let me know about your project, your ideal deadline for the project, and your ideal budget for the project. You can reach me easily at rondabowen@writingresearchediting.com. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
