Editing for authors of contemporary fiction including psychological thrillers, crime, mystery and suspense, and creative non-fiction including travel and food writing.
Do you want your writing to connect with your audience and captivate your readers? Do you want them to enjoy your book and, hopefully, tell other people good things about it?
As a trained copy editor and proofreader, I’ll make sure your writing flows smoothly and is free from any distracting inaccuracies and inconsistencies, awkward sentence structure or repetition. I’ll also check that the nuts and bolts of punctuation, spelling and grammar are correct, so you can self-publish or submit to publishers and agents with confidence.
If the prospect of an editor going through your pride and joy makes you shudder, rest assured that I will treat it with a delicate touch. Any amendments and suggestions will be clearly marked for you to either accept or reject. It’s your book – you have complete control. My role is to help you connect with your readers in an engaging and accessible way, without altering your style or voice.
‘When we first started working together she took my very raw manuscript and, having read it, convinced me that she could make it fit to publish. I remember feeling a surge of confidence from her encouragement and set to work with a will on the corrections and suggestions she provided for me.’
William V Kelly, author Until the Fat Man Sings, Place in the Sun
