Ryan M. Howard

Trinica’s professional proofread became an immeasurable help to me during the last stage of my editing process. Before going through the full manuscript containing her corrections, I read the cover letter she provided detailing an overview of the manuscript as a whole, highlighting the specific types of corrections that were made.Trinica’s expertise enhanced the readability of my manuscript. She hyphenated certain words that required as much, expertly removed unnecessary commas, and made key punctuation improvements for some dialogue tags that needed fixing—all in addition to other insightful fixes as well.I’m so very grateful for her time and work. Thank you, Trinica!
