Getting it right for you
Are you an independent author looking for a professional editor to give your novel or short story the attention it deserves?
Do you need advice on what kind of editing you need – perhaps you’ve just finished your first draft, and you’re looking for feedback? Or have you spent months on revisions, and now you need someone to do a final polish?
Wherever you are in your journey, give me a call or send me an email, and we can have a chat about how I might be able to help.
I’ve worked in publishing for more than a decade, and I’ve been freelance since 2013. I focus on editing fiction for indie authors, self-publishers and commercial publishers, specialising in science fiction, fantasy, thrillers, horror, LGBT fiction and romance. I’m an Advanced Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
I’m friendly and approachable, and will always respect your needs, your voice and your style.
How I work
I offer a free sample edit to give authors a taste of my work, and to allow me to assess what level of editing is needed and make sure we’re on the same page.
I always use Track Changes so that authors can see exactly what I’ve done, and I add queries in-text using the Comments feature.
I’m experienced with both US and UK English, and I frequently use the industry standards Chicago Manual of Style and New Hart’s Rules.
