Editing & Proofreading Services

I offer copy editing and proofreading services alongside two packages which include providing an interview with the author and an advance review of the text. All fees are listed in British Pounds but I am happy to convert the fees once in conversation with you about what you need. 

Visit the Contact page to email me. Please be specific in your email - what service you are interested in, what genre your text is, and provide a brief synopsis or outline. 

If you wish to enquire about book reviews please use the Contact page. I write book reviews for free in return for a free pdf/ebook version. I will only accept book reviews on the basis I have time and I am interested in the book itself. 

Payment will be taken via PayPal (or Payhip if necessary). Payments can be made upfront once we have discussed what you need and I have accepted the work, or payments can be split in half, with the first half being made upfront and the second half being paid once the work has been completed. 

Copy Editing

Copy editing includes detailed line by line edits and suggestions as well as a final proofread once the line edits have been responded to. Line edits will focus on formatting, grammar, expression and content.

Promotion Package

Alongside proofreading your manuscript I will also provide you with an advance review and an interview. The advance review will be shared on this website, my Instagram, on Goodreads and on the platform you will be selling your book on. The interview with you will be shared on my website. You will receive a copy of both the review and the interview to use for promotional purposes. The price of the package will depend upon the length of your manuscript but the set fee for the interview and advance review is £50. 

The promotion package for a short poetry chapbook for example would be £75.

The Complete Edit

This package will begin with copy editing and proofreading your manuscript before interviewing you and providing you with an advance review. The interview and advance review details remain as they are written above. The set fee is £50 plus the fee for copy editing your manuscript. 

The complete edit for a short poetry chapbook for example would be £100 but for a 400 page novel it would be £250.
