SmallBWSueI am a fiction editor and proofreader based in East Hampshire, UK, having started out as a trainee proofreader for The Better Book Company, Chichester, West Sussex, in 2007. I am an Intermediate Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.

I offer a professional service, and references are available on request. Alternatively, please see my testimonials page. I welcome both new and established writers.

My fees are based on the word count of your original document – I do not charge an hourly rate.

I always carry out a free sample edit before editing commences. This enables me to establish the level of editing required, estimate how long the whole novel will take, and provide you with an example of how I work.

I am in the process of transferring my original website to this one, which includes a blog for those who are interested in the editing process and/or self-publishing their work.

If you would like more information about the editorial services I offer, please browse the menu options at the top of the screen, or contact me using the form below.
