Are you looking for an honest, straightforward and friendly-but-professional editor for your contemporary fiction manuscript? Great, I think I know some of those. Let me get you their numbers…

Oh wait. I am one of those. And you (probably, because you’re looking at my page) are a writer who knows that there’s so much more to self-publishing than writing a book and sticking it on Amazon (other ebook platforms are available). You know that you owe it to your work and to your readers to invest in your writing, to make sure it’s correct, clear and consistent. You know the value of enlisting a professional, unbiased pair of eyes to make sure your story truly shines.

I offer substantive, line and copyediting services (see my Editing services page for exactly what I mean by that) and manuscript critiques. I can help with bigger-picture, structural issues – making sure that you have an engaging and plausible plot, believable characters and just the right pace – or I can help you polish up your prose – not only correcting errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation, but tweaking clunky syntax, reducing repetitive or redundant phrases and making sure your writing is consistent and stylish.

If you’d like to find out a bit more about me (and why wouldn’t you? I’m fascinating), have a wander over to my About page.
