Services & Pricing

Our mission is to help our clients produce clean and bright communications - which is why we selected our name Edelweiss Editing.

Just as that beloved flower is described in the lyrics, we want your copy to be clean and bright. Always.


With over 25 years in the journalism and PR field, let us take the red ink out of your communication needs, no matter how small or large the project may be. Whether you need proofreading, copy writing, editing, or just another set of eyes on your work, we can help you to reach your goal of the mountain top of success. 

So say goodbye to the status quo.

Patsy Pelton is a member of the Association of Women in Communications (AWC) and American Copy Editors Society. In 2012, Patsy launched Edelweiss Editing. Currently she serves as the freelance copy editor for the award-winning San Antonio Magazine for the past 6 years. She has also continues to provide all communications and advertising support for PelRay International as well as for other clients.

She is the former associate editor of Today’s Catholic Newspaper in San Antonio. During her tenure at Today’s Catholic Newspaper, she won two national Catholic Press Awards for the annual archdiocesan directory she produced in 2006 and 2008. Under her direction, the staff also earned third place in General Excellence for 2 consecutive issues from the Catholic Press Association. She has served as editor for two e-books written by national newspaper consultant Ed Henninger and for novelist Robert Lawrence. 

As a lifetime Girl Scout, she researched and compiled the first history book of the then-Girl Scouts of San Antonio Area Council to mark the Council's 80th anniversary in 2004. 

Before moving back to Texas from Alabama in 2001, Patsy worked with the faculty at Our lady of the Valley Catholic School in Birmingham and authored the successful application for the school to be selected as a "Blue Ribbon" school in 1999. This was a rare achievement as less than 5% of schools who apply on their first attempt were successful in that goal. The school newsletter that she started, "On Eagle's Wings," still is produced for the school by parent volunteers.

She is a proud graduate of San Antonio Thomas Jefferson High School, where her journalism career began as the Monticello yearbook editor. While at the University of Texas at Austin, she worked on the Daily Texan newspaper on staff with Buck Harvey as editor, who is a former San Antonio Express-News sports writer. She was a proud member of the Cactus yearbook staff for two years and was inducted into Kappa Tau Alpha (Journalism Honor Society) and Society of Professional Journalists (Sigma Delta Chi). She served as president of Gamma Delta Epilson, the women's auxiliary organization to Alpha Phi Omega. She was selected as a Cactus "Goodfellow" prior to graduation in 1976.
