Handing your work over to a contractor can be a nerve-wracking experience.
I get that – and I can help.
I am a professional editor and proofreader, and have been working as an independent contractor since 2008.
Note for November 2022: Some of you may have noticed that this website also looks like it’s been working since 2008, and you wouldn’t be wrong! “Redesign website” has been on my to-do list for ages, and I’m delighted to report that I’m currently working with a lovely and talented fellow called Brian, who will soon dazzle us all with a fresh new site.
Until then, however, we will all have to wait with bated breath for the big reveal. (No pressure, Brian!)
So, dear reader, read on…
What I do
Whether you need a substantive edit (where we do a lot of rearranging, fact-checking, and rewriting), a second pair of eyes to double-check the text on your website, or just a quick scan of your PowerPoint slides to make sure all is in order, I will work with you to make the editing process as simple and pain-free as possible.
I work with established authors, academic / scholarly writers, and new, emerging, and indie / self-publishing authors, writing on every topic under the sun. No matter what shape your manuscript is in, or what subject you’re writing about, I’m happy to take a look and talk more with you about your needs and requirements – and your worst fears. (Believe me, I really get this!)
Not sure what kind of editing you need? Here’s a quick guide.
And if you want to learn more about how to work with an editor, here’s a little book I wrote with Mark Dawson, one of my top clients, called How to Work with An Editor: A Guide for (Nervous) Clients. It’s free to download, and answers many of the questions you may have.
Meanwhile, have a look through my site and see if what I have to offer is right for you. If you think we’d work well together, or if you want to talk to me further about your requirements and my rates, drop me a line and I’ll happily answer your questions.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Your words. Your voice. Your way.
