Editing services are available across a range of genres.

Fiction & Literary Nonfiction

  • Literary Edit

    This comprehensive edit involves a review & critique of your book, which is delivered in a review & critique document accompanied by an annotated version of your manuscript. This type of edit is commonly known as a substantive or developmental edit and reviews high-level issues as well as nitty-gritty plot points.

  • Content Edit

    Copy edit addressing sentence structure, flow & substance at a detailed, line-by-line level.

  • Proofread

    Line-by-line edit addressing spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

I offer a three-tier editing package which includes a literary edit, a second round of edits (including a line-by-line content edit), and a final draft proofread. Rates are dependent on size and scope of work. For a quote specific to your currency and requirements, please contact me. As well as discussing scheduling and capacity, I will request a synopsis and/or extract of your book, and offer you a free, no-obligation, five-page sample edit to check we will be a good fit.
