Editing

Whether you need a simple document proofread, or have the bare bones of your blog post or website copy but need that professional spit and polish, or need help with editing your book, I can help.

Publishing a book is on most people’s bucket lists these days. And why not, it’s an amazing lifetime achievement. These days it is notoriously difficult to get a book published so many people decide to self-publish. Whichever option you choose, your manuscript needs to be word-perfect —without spelling, punctuation or grammatical errors. Whether you’re writing a non-fiction book, a memoir, or a novel, I have ample experience in both structural editing and copy editing.

“When your story is ready for rewrite, cut it to the bone. Get rid of every ounce of excess fat. This is going to hurt; revising a story down to the bare essentials is always a little like murdering children, but it must be done.” ~Stephen King
