Database Research

For substantial writing such as theses or capstone papers, AE Freelance Editing can provide tips on the best research methods, databases, and archives for your project, as well as offering fact-checking services. 


For nonfiction works such as history books, memoirs, or biographies, we can compile high-quality research packets with the facts and scholarship that you need to get started or augment your argument.

Historical Fiction

For novels that feature your own creative flair, but are set within an established time period, AE Freelance Editing offers research consultations to ensure your historical fiction novel is accurate. 

Even the tiniest of inconsistent details can pull your reader out of your carefully crafted story; if the details are all on point though, fans won't sweat the small stuff and will enjoy your brilliant prose.
