Services

The services I offer are shown below. I currently limit myself to two novels a year: one in January, and the other in July. This may be with a new or an existing client; however, new clients are accepted on a submission-only basis during November (for a January start) and during May (for a July start). There is no change to the procedure for short stories.

  • OPTION 1: 'EDITING'
  • I begin with a structural edit, from which I produce a report for the client. This involves one complete read-through of the typescript, and is followed with copy-editing provided I had found no serious structural issues. If so, these will need to be rectified by the client before copy-editing can commence.

  • OPTION 2: 'TYPESETTING' (for self-publishing projects only)
  • After editing is complete, I format the typescript so that the text is displayed in an industry-standard layout ready for publication. Please note that two separate formatting processes are required for a printed book and an e-book.

  • OPTION 3: 'PROOFREADING'
  • This option is only available for typescripts that have been professionally edited and typeset (formatted), whether I have carried out that work or not. I check for last-minute errors and omissions before publication takes place.

  • OPTION 4: 'PUBLISHING' (for self-publishing projects only)
  • Depending on client wishes, I can either assist with self-publishing or publish using my own imprint, Shadenet Publishing. Whichever is chosen, the client always retains ultimate control over their work. For more information, click here to open a PDF file that can be saved or printed.
