Why use my editorial services?

Professional expertise

I’m an experienced editor with a degree in English Literature and Language. When you choose me as your editor, I provide a keen eye for detail, a solid knowledge of grammar and style, and a passion for helping writers create their best work.

Confidentiality and security

It’s scary sharing work with others. But taking that first step will give you the confidence boost you need. Rest assured, your writing is kept safe and confidential. You can trust me to handle your material with the utmost care and respect for your intellectual property.

Publication-ready manuscripts

Whether you want to self-publish or find an agent, I can help you write a manuscript that meets industry standards and is more likely to capture the attention of publishers, literary agents and readers.

How it works

1. Get a quote

Complete the contact form on an editorial service page (or the bottom of this page) to receive your quote.

2. Send your work

If you accept my proposal, I request 50% upfront payment to begin work. Once this is received, you’re ready to send your work to me.

3. Reading stage

I’ll complete my reading of your work, which may take up to a week or more.

4. My assessment

I will complete my review of your writing, mark up your document with suggested changes and feedback, and/or complete the manuscript assessment report. This may take up to two weeks to complete, depending on the service.

5. Collaborative approach

I offer open communication throughout the editing process. You have the opportunity to review and  discuss suggested changes by email, ensuring that your unique voice and story are preserved.

6. Final delivery

You’ll then receive the fully edited manuscript. Your satisfaction and confidence in your novel are my top priorities, so I’m still available to answer any questions.
