I am a freelance fiction editor and proofreader. I have undertaken professional training and have experience in editing novels ranging from contemporary fiction and romance, to thrillers and sci-fi.
I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading and am therefore bound by their Code of Practice. I am committed to my continued professional development which is ongoing through the Institute, and my qualifications to date are listed here.
I aim to offer a quick turnaround whilst not compromising on quality. A 90,000-word novel usually takes around two weeks, depending on the amount of work required. If it is likely to take me longer than this, I will always let you know. I am happy to provide you with a sample of my editing; please contact me if you would like to see an example. My preferred working methods are to read through a copy of the manuscript before beginning editing, in order that I can gain an insight into the premise, plot and structure of the story. I can then edit as appropriate. Please contact me for a free quote.
Please see my Services page to read in more detail exactly what I offer as both a fiction editor and proofreader. My Prices page details my hourly rate, however please feel free to email me directly and I will gladly offer you a quotation. I also have a number of Testimonials from clients which should give you an idea of the quality of my work.
