EDITING: FICTION, NON-FICTION & POETRY
all services offered to experienced and unpublished authors alike
WORK IN PROGRESS
A detailed mark up of your manuscript, looking at the overarching plot, characterisation, structure, viewpoint, pacing, dialogue, and language (including syntax, repetition, tone, tense, etc). Restructuring, rewriting and/or adding extra material can also be arranged, if required, for an extra fee.
FEE: from £130 per 10,000 words
PREPARING FOR PUBLICATION
Preparing a manuscript for publication with detailed copy-editing, offering line-by-line corrections, checking accuracy of language (spellings/grammar/syntax), internal timelines, consistency, and facts.
For multiple-author anthologies or pamphlets, project management and communication with each individual author can be included for an extra fee.
FEE: from £100 per 10,000 words
SYNOPSIS & COVER LETTER
Condensing your entire manuscript into a synopsis that fits on a single A4 page can be hard to get right. I'll give you thorough advice on the content and layout of your synopsis and on your covering letter too – a tool that should never be underestimated. For short stories, novels and memoirs.
FEE: from £80
As well as offering editing services, I can take your manuscript to the next level with typesetting, providing print-ready or e-book-ready files. Designs include all front-end and copyright material, as well as a choice of page and chapter layouts. I also provide book cover design – examples of this work are available on request.
FEE: from £300
