Editing, Proofreading and Manuscript Assessment Services

Are you looking for an editor who can make your manuscript shine? Whether you're a first-time author or a seasoned professional, I would love to help you get your next writing project out into the world. 

A member of the International Association of Professional Writers and Editors, I have helped writers at all stages of their career get their books into the hands of readers. I work regularly with both independent authors and publishing houses, and can assist you at all stages of your publication journey.

Specialising in fiction and creative non-fiction of all lengths, I provide honest and detailed feedback and corrections, while ensuring your unique author's voice is retained. As an author myself, I know how terrifying it can be to send your book baby off to the editor! That's why I deliver my feedback in a kind and supportive way, offering the advice you need to make your book the best it can be.

Developmental Editing

Developmental editing focuses on the "big picture" of a book. It addresses issues with structure, plot, characterisation, and any other areas that may weaken your story. With each developmental edit, I also provide a detailed manuscript assessment report, highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of your book, along with suggestions for improvement. 

Cost: US$22 per 1000 words (includes detailed manuscript assessment report)
