Editing

Have you finally finished the book you’re planning to self-publish? I can help you with suggesting the changes that help your story to shine through. 

I specialise in editing non-fiction. My interests are as eclectic as me and include: creativity, health and wellbeing, arts and culture, fitness,  yoga, horse-riding, travel, nature, food, and style.

Editing usually refers to substantial changes to a manuscript. As part of my editing service, I suggest changes to the structure of your book and identify sections you may want to revisit to make them flow better.

As a writer myself, I know from experience how hard it is to spot any errors when you’ve spent a long time with a text. Having someone look at it with a fresh pair of eyes can be incredibly useful before you publish.

I’ve created the editing service to help you focus on the things that excite you. There are a few simple steps involved:

  1. You get in touch to let me know you’re interested in editing.
  2. I will set up a discovery call to find out more about you and your project and talk through what support I can offer. 
  3. I will you give you a personalised quote and timescales for your book.
  4. If you decide you want to go ahead, I will send you an agreement to sign. If you decide that it’s not for you or you’re not ready yet then there is no obligation. 
  5. You send me your manuscript and I start the editing magic.
  6. I send you a copy of a marked-up version of your manuscript and a document with editorial suggestions.

I also offer proofreading which is the final step of editing
