Copyediting - correcting grammar, punctuation, spelling etc. I work on both fiction and non-fiction books and can also edit academic papers, online content, print copy (such as brochures) and storyboards.
Fiction editing - I specialise in crime fiction, thriller and scifi/fantasy, but love to work with authors writing in any genre.
Line editing services - For those whose manuscript needs some extra attention, I will work to improve the flow and structure, remove inconsistencies relating to plot, characters, etc.
Developmental editing (often called structural editing) - This is a full manuscript markup and includes tracked change comments in the manuscript and an editorial report summarising issues and suggested changes.
Manuscript critiques/assessments - This inclues an editorial letter outlining issues and suggested changes to your manuscript and is a ‘light’ version of a full developmental edit (no manuscript markup).
Proofreading - The final check before publication! I proofread both fiction and non-fiction books, online content, print copy and more.
You can see some of the books I’ve been lucky enough to work on below. For samples of my editing work, please get in touch.
