My mission statement: to work hard and have a good time.
My name is Corey (C.B.) McCullough. A few years ago, I was digging up prehistoric artifacts and conducting cultural resource surveys for an environmental consulting firm, where I was often covered in dirt, mud, and ticks. Before that, I was a full-time copywriter for an asset management company, putting together product descriptions and advertising material for online sales. Now, I’m a full-time freelancer specializing in editing, proofreading, and creative writing. My running totals as a freelancer are as follows.
General Editing: 7 fiction novels, 4 nonfiction books, and 2 children’s books
Copy editing: 281 blog posts and 557 news articles
Proofreading: 5 academic essays, 128 pieces of copy
Ghostwriting: 2 novels, 2 nonfiction books, and many articles and blog posts
My clients say I’m skilled, professional, reliable, flexible, and easy to work with. Freelancing is my full-time job. I work Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., but I’ve also been known to work until 3 a.m. to meet an emergency deadline or rise at 4 in pursuit of extra work.
My skills include editing, copyediting, proofreading, creative writing, fiction editing, structural editing, ghostwriting, rewriting, blog writing, book writing, game writing, ebook formatting, self-publishing assistance. I’m experienced with Associated Press Style, Chicago Manual of Style, Amazon KDP, Createspace, WordPress, Scrivener, Apple Pages, Microsoft Word, Office Suite, Mac programs, and more.
