***  One Paragraph Pitch:

 

My name is Christine Keleny-Craven. I am currently looking for freelance copy editing work. I have been working in the medical field as a Physical Therapist for 30 years so I am familiar with medial terminology. I have also been a supervisor in a therapy clinic for approximately 24 years, so I am a self starter, I have extraordinary customer service skills, and I know how to get things done. I also started a self-publishing company in 2004 to publish and sell my own books (5 to date). Since December 2013 I have opened up that business to helping others self-publish. I have a certificate in copy editing from Mediabistro of New York and have done probono editing for other independent authors for two years. I have recently started running writing and publishing workshops at local libraries in my area. I am available to take a copy editing test to confirm my skills meet your needs. Feel free to contact me at christinekeleny@yahoo.com. My publishing website is: ckbookspublishing.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
