Welcome

I am a freelance fiction editor, based in East Hampshire, UK, successfully running my own business since 2012. I offer two separate services: 1) professional editing only; 2) a self-publishing package.
 
I pride myself in treating a client's novel as a traditional publisher would, and with patience, dedication, and commitment. In return, I ask the same from the author. Professional editing is not a quick fix of spelling, grammar, and punctuation; neither is it to read through a story to see if it has merit. It is a skilled job of presenting the author's words, intentions, and meanings to the reader; in a clear, concise, and coherent manner.  With this in mind, it is important for the independent author to realise that the journey to publication is a long-term project. Depending on the level of work required, and the word count of the typescript, expect a timescale of between three to nine months. 
 
This website contains a lot of information about the editing process and all the stages through to self-publication. If you are seriously considering either, I recommend a read through before contacting me, so that you have a basic understanding of what is involved. Writing the story is only the first leg of the journey. Yes, professional editing costs money, but it is a financial investment that will set your novel apart from those that have not benefited from such a service.

The menu options along the top-right of the screen categorise the information into helpful chunks. To continue your journey, click ABOUT.
