SERVICES

I provide a full range of editing services for fiction and non-fiction works. I also offer free sample edits to help determine the level of editing required and to create an estimate.
Not sure what editorial service you need? Don’t hesitate to contact me to find out more information.

Copyediting

I will provide line-by-line edits to ensure clarity of writing and language consistency. I will check and correct for consistency of grammar, spelling, capitalisation, punctuation, font usage, numerals, hyphenation and other similar elements.

I will also eliminate repetition, unnecessary words or phrases, and will flag wordy or awkward language that may need correction or explanation. 

Proofreading

This is the final step of the editing process and is used to pick up final errors before publication. I can help you refine your document by checking for typographical errors, proper word usage, basic grammar, typos, misspellings and ensure consistency with punctuation and format.

Also known as developmental editing, this form of editing focuses on the content of the manuscript.

In fiction, I will focus on overall theme, style, plot, characterisations, dialogue, pace, flow and other story-telling techniques. In non-fiction, I will focus on tone, pace and organisation of ideas. All my suggestions will be made with the target reader in mind.

This is the step before structural editing where I will read your manuscript closely to identify the strengths and weaknesses within the story.
I will evaluate the overall structure, content and style; and provide clear, objective feedback in an in-depth editorial letter.
