Editing 
I have worked as an editor, copy-editor and proofreader for a number of years, having received my qualifications in copy-editing and proofreading from Chapterhouse Publishing in England in 2009. Although particularly interested in history, archaeology and biography, I have worked on everything from cookery magazines to travel books to geology monographs for traditional publishers as well as independent authors. At present, I am working mainly on academic books, including many edited volumes. I also provide indexes and can be contacted for quotes and information at l.fentonpublishing@gmail.com.
Testimonials:
Dr Olusola Ogunnubi, University of the Free State, South Africa and Samuel Oyewole, Federal University, Nigeria: 'We must sincerely thank you for coming to our rescue to provide an excellent editorial assistance ... The proofreading we received from you was timely and thorough ... We look forward to sending you more manuscripts for editorial assistance in the future.'
Dr Shun-Ping Chen, Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences, Germany: 'It was a great pleasure to work with you ... I am deeply impressed ... Thank you again.'
