You want your writing to captivate and connect with your audience. You want to draw your readers into the world you’ve created and make them feel a part of it. And you want your readers to wax lyrical about the great book they’ve just read.

So give your writing a professional edge. As a trained copy editor and proofreader, my aim is to rid your manuscript of errors while making it more readable. I’ll make sure your sentences flow smoothly, free from any distracting inaccuracies and inconsistencies, awkward syntax or repetition. I’ll also check that the nuts and bolts of punctuation, spelling and grammar are correct, so you can publish and share 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.

If you are looking for developmental help, I also offer a manuscript critique service which takes an unbiased and honest look at the big-picture elements of your novel, such as plot, structure and characterization.

‘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
