"The second most-frequent writing request, after books, is for school papers.  We respond to all such queries by refusing to help a student cheat himself (or herself) out of an education." David Leonhardt quoted in Maclean's, Canada's national magazine

What sets The Happy Guy Marketing's copy editors apart: Our minds remain on the big picture while our eyes focus on the details.

There is nothing that says "amateur" like misspellings, poor grammar or disconnects in a text. A fancy flash video website can instantly tumble on the weakness of a few words. A book reviewer can quickly write off sloppy writing without ever noticing your content. Fortunately, it is so easy to head off those costly mistakes before they happen by hiring a freelance Canadian copy editor, proofreader or book manuscript editor.

"Make sure your words carry forward your messages, both express and implicit."

What our proofreaders and editors do for you

We can provide all the basics. We can proofread:

  • correct spelling
  • correct grammar
  • correct punctuation
  • correct word usage (Do you know when to use "that" and when to use "which"?)

Of course "correct" might include slang or other terms, depending on the nature of your audience and your product. And "correct" might mean something different, depending on whether you are writing primarily for the domestic market or the market south of the border. You want to consistently say "color" or "honor", depending on the market.

We go beyond simple proofreading to ensure consistency. For example, if some pages of your book or newsletter are written in very formal language, you probably don't want a few pages written more colloquially.

Our copy editors can do all this, PLUS we can add colour (or "color"?) to your manuscript. Some adjectives and adverbs can add a little colour, but a few well-placed action verbs or powerful analogies can give your book or website an energy and vigor that compels readers to take action. (Re-read that last sentence; notice how the words that make it jump off the screen are verbs and nouns?)

Canadian copy editors are in high demand

The chart below shows what services Canadians are asking from us, and as you can see, there are a lot of people just like you seeking editors to perfect their text:

Our editing clients speak out.

Gabriel Sinki - Christian author

I can't thank you enough for the excellent job you did. The article flows like a symphony... Of all the editors that did help me out - in my other publications - you are the best. I am very happy that I found you. and grateful for David that he recommended you. I will now submit the article for publication and if accepted I will hand you the book for your editing.

Marty - memoir writer

I opened your edited file today. Although I have not had the strength to make the changes, they are PERFECT. You have done exactly what I had hoped you would do - you made my story better. I am eager to incorporate your suggestions and send it to my publisher. Thanks so much!

Toni - author, Alabama Blue

Debra is exactly the person/editor/lady I was looking for. She is not re-writing my book, she's making it better. I took 98%+ of her suggestions on my first fifty pages. I am very pleased and inspired. I LOVE WHAT SHE IS DOING WITH ALABAMA BLUE.
