Substantive editing & copy-editing For novels


SHIPSHAPE (£375-£500)

A good writer needs to balance the equilibrium between two things in their writing: ease and force. Whether your plot is a complex piece of time travel, a rich tapestry of narrative shifts, or a more traditionally structured piece, understanding and navigating the structure of your work should be smooth sailing for all readers.

This package explores the narrative structure, tone of voice, and accessibility of your writing to make sure that everything is in ticking order. Think of it as a general check up to pick up any small details or loose ends that you may have missed.

This package is ideal for works that are in their more mature stages of development. I also highly recommend this service for dyslexic writers who need a little help perfecting their spelling, syntax and grammar.


Major Major (Starting from £700)

My rock n' roll package, Major Major is no catch 22, as this package includes every service you need to polish your rock into a diamond.

Tailored for each writer and each project, we'll work together to develop, finish and fine-tune your work, taking your novel through the full substantive and copy-editing process until it is the novel or collection that you set out to write.

If you’re in it for the long haul, then this is the package for you. In short, by the end of this project, you’ll have a manuscript that’s ready to present to a publisher, a loved one, or to a final stage proof-reader.

N.B. I will do what I can to highlight and consult on all errors I encounter, but due to the deeply involved nature of my input, I would recommend sending the final work out for professional proofreading.
