Since obtaining his proofreading qualification at the end of 2013, Murray has successfully completed more than eighty proofreading projects.  Some of these have been one-off manuscripts, but the majority have been undertaken on behalf of three publishing companies, namely Pen & Sword Books, The History Press and Pitch Publishing. All projects were completed within tight timescales and to the satisfaction of the editorial managers concerned.
