Here’s what you’ll get at a glance.

Tracked changes

I provide actionable recommendations using tracked changes so you can easily consider my edits, deletions and formatting revisions.

Fact check

I highlight anything that looks out of place, and any contradicting facts that might be hiding in your book.

R

Spelling, grammar & punctuation

While I don’t exclusively prioritise accuracy, I still make sure to catch spelling, grammar or punctuation errors for you.

My copy-editing goes beyond just proofreading for grammatical errors. I also focus on improving the clarity, flow and coherence of your writing, while also ensuring that it follows style rules.

As a copy-editor, part of my role is to ensure the accuracy of your book’s content. I’ll be on the lookout for anything that seems inconsistent or contradictory, and bring it to your attention so that you can make the necessary revisions. My keen eye for detail means that I won’t let questionable statements slip by, giving you confidence that your book’s clean and polished.

What’s accepted?

Genres: Fantasy, science-fiction, speculative fiction, young adult, middle grade and paranormal.

Lengths: All lengths

The costs

Rate: £0.009/word and up, depending on the manuscript. Exact costs will be determined during a pre-edit assessment. Simply fill out the form below for your own personalised quote.

What you get

This service includes a thorough review of your writing, during which I will provide my recommendations for various aspects, such as spelling, grammar, punctuation, dialogue formatting, inconsistent capitalisation, unintentional repetition, redundancies, passive voice, and the overuse of italics and exclamation marks.

You will receive your manuscript back with tracked changes, either provided in Google Docs or Word (depending on your preference).
