Hi, my name is Liz Smith. I’m a freelance proofreader, editor, indexer, and sermon transcriptionist based in beautiful Mebane, North Carolina. I specialize in Christian nonfiction, and I’m passionate about getting the gospel message out in print.

From the preached word to the hands of the reader. 

 


Proofreading and Editing

I provide professional proofreading and editing for biblically solid Christian works such as:

  • manuscripts (nonfiction only)
  • websites
  • blogs
  • newsletters (print or electronic)
  • journal/magazine articles
  • Bible studies and devotionals
  •  

E-book Conversion and Print Formatting

Professionally designed print formatting for your self-published book or other project as well as conversion to e-book reflowable format (ePub and Mobi) for publication to Amazon Kindle, Apple iBooks, Smashwords, Kobo, B&N NOOK, Google Play, and others.

Indexing

Because I specialize in Christian nonfiction, I know (and love) the subject matter. I consider it a challenge as well as a ministry to bring the concepts and items of a well-written biblically based book to the readers seamlessly and transparently.

Sermon Transcription

Many theological books were birthed from the sermons of gifted teachers and preachers. I believe it’s beneficial to the body of Christ—and for the expansion of the kingdom—to get sermons reproduced into the written word for many reasons:

  • Sermon transcripts are a fantastic starting point for manuscripts, tracts, pamphlets, blogs, and journal articles.
  • Some people, such as the hearing impaired or those who do not have audio capabilities, can still be blessed by the Word of God by reading a transcript.
  • Excerpts of sermon transcripts can be shared on social media or through email or text.
  • Some people prefer reading to listening, and others like to read while watching or listening, which reinforces content.
  • Print material makes studying and finding content easier—keyword searches and highlighting for Bible study; even clickable links can be inserted into a PDF or on a website.
  • Search engine optimization (SEO)—written text online will be picked up by search engines, making sermons or other media easier to find.
  • Transcripts can be translated into other languages.
