About C.B.

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.

If my skills match your needs, let’s talk!

  1. Heya, just wanted to say thanks for the nomination for Next Big Thing. I appreciate the gesture. I’m going to post a response to it on PSA tomorrow (hopefully). Take care of yourself.

  2. Hi! Thank you for stopping by my blog and liking my post. 🙂 I’m glad I stopped by – I studied Anthropology in college with an emphasis on archaeology. I would love to hear about how you ended up as an archaeological technician! I wish you luck with your writing!

    1. A fellow anthropologist! Awesome! Anthropology is a great field of study for writers. All sorts of stories are buried in human cultures– past and present. (A lot of anthro theory went into creating the world in The Fallen Odyssey!) As for me, I do archaeological work for an environmental consulting firm; mostly phase I surveys for pipeline work. If you’re trying to go that route, I recommend:
      There is a ton of work going on right now. Once you get your foot in the door, you won’t have any trouble keeping busy full time, if that’s what you want. Best wishes in writing and in archaeology. – CB

    1. Thank you! I have to agree with your most recent post. Ereaders just don’t have the soul of good, paper-and-bindings, physical books. I recently self-published for kindle, but I’m in the process of getting it printed for those who prefer that option. (Like myself!) Hope you continue to enjoy McCullough Writes.

    1. Thanks! I hope you’ll consider checking it out. The prologue is online (above). And Part 1: The Path Less Traveled is available for only $.99 on Amazon for those interested in testing the waters.

  3. Am playing catch up on people who’ve come by my site: so thank you kindly. What you write about CreateSpace in one of your posts I can also vouch for.

  4. I always wanted to be an Anthropologist, in fact I haven’t spoken this up til know but I’m in the process of my first book. Reading your work is inspiring me, Thanks.
