My company is called “Dailey Freelance Blogging” officially. But some of my bigger projects have been proofreading and editing books. Unfortunately all of these projects are still in the works so I cannot provide clips.
But the three major projects I have worked on are:
- a memoir by a white American Buddhist heavy metal enthusiast and painter with Tourette’s.
- a memoir of a Hindu woman with a rare disorder called Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia, who is a devotee of Swami Sai Baba. HHT is a condition related to the clotting of the blood.
- a work of fiction involving the author’s personal genealogy, the history and mythology of Ireland, as well as a heaping helping of metaphysics.
So as you can imagine, I have grown accustomed to working with material that is quite complex, with a great amount of depth, and of deep personal importance to the authors. It has been my great honor to have had these writers entrust me with their stories.
On these projects, I have considered myself merely an editor. The content of the work itself is up to the author, and I’d never dream of intruding on their vision. I provide suggestions when asked, but beyond that my job is to help the author’s story (as they tell it) come through in the most cohesive, coherent, and effective way possible.
I understand that as the author of the work, it is YOUR labor of love. It is your life. I have a great respect for that.
Again it is my honor to work with you.
