New Writers

If you have a completed manuscript and are unsure about publishing your work, I now offer an editorial appraisal.
Unfortunately, I cannot take bookings for this service. It will be a case of first come, first served, and take second place to my main editorial duties (unless I am not editing at the time). Upon completion, you will have:
  • learned how to improve your own writing (because there is always room for improvement!)
  • gained a better understanding of the creative writing process
  • become familiar with the requirements of writing for publication
I accept any genre of fiction, but you must meet the following criteria:
  • You reside in the UK, and UK English is your first language
  • Your manuscript is complete, word-processed, with a basic structure of chapters/parts, and is your own work
  • Word count is no greater than 80,000 words. 
The fee is the same as my standard editing service: £10 per 1,000 words, as the work involves a similar procedure.
Email me by clicking on the Contact link below. This will open up your regular email app. Include a few lines about yourself, what you have written, and what your ideal timescale is (if any), and I shall get back to you as soon as possible.
No social media! No pop-ups, ads, or 'before you go' ploys!
