Are you thinking of self-publishing your book, and/or submitting it to traditional publishing houses or agents? Are you writing an essay or dissertation that needs some attention? Perhaps English is not your first language? I can help you get your work ready for submission.
I am an experienced copy editor and proof reader, having worked for publishing companies in-house and as a freelance editor. I have extensive experience in editing non-fiction books, novels, academic essays, dissertations, and many other kinds of writing. I will work with you to get your writing into the best possible state and help you polish it to allow the content to shine through.
As a rough guide, proof reading is usually £10 per 1000 words, and editing is £12-£15 depending on the level of work required. Email me for a free quote – I’m open to negotiation. I am happy to discuss any questions or projects you might have.
I look forward to hearing from you!
‘I was delighted that you took so much care over the manuscript, I really felt you’d understood what I was trying to do with the story. I appreciate the time it must have taken and agree with the vast majority of your edits. I hope to work with you again on my next MS. Thank you!’
‘Thanks so much for returning the final edit in good time. Happy to see that very little needed to be changed at this stage. I very much appreciate the suggestions you made earlier on re rewording, it has definitely helped. I can see you have a real interest and affection for this genre which I’m sure makes a difference. Thanks again for your meticulous attention.’
