As an English Literature and Philosophy graduate from the University of Birmingham (UK), books are my passion. Books are unique in their ability to change the world, even long after their author has gone. As a result, I became a freelance book editor and proofreader, utilising my skills and knowledge to help authors deliver books that are worth reading.
With over 10 years of experience, I’ve worked as a freelancer and in-house for the UK’s leading global ICT publisher (Packt Publishing), proofreading over 400 books on a range of ICT & Tech subjects—often written by non-native speakers. I also copyedited over 20 Manager’s Guides to business topics for Impackt Publishing. As a freelancer, I have content edited and proofread over 30 books in the genres of Self-Improvement, Business Development, ICT, Entrepreneurship, Philosophy, and more. I’ve worked with first-time self-publishing authors to New York Times bestsellers. You can see a selection of the books I’ve edited in the sidebar.
With so many editors out there, the question is always, why choose me? Aside from my substantial knowledge of the English language and my experience in the publishing industry, I’m a conscientious individual who believes that we should all strive to make the world a better place for others, whether that is through writing a book or in other ways. I travelled the world for a year, exploring different cultures and working from beaches to forests, and my experience and philosophical training translates to deep, critical thinking.
So if you choose me as your editor, what you’ll get is a constructive and challenging critique of your book, honest feedback on the quality of your book, and comprehensive, practical guidance and suggestions on how to improve it.
What’s more, through the editing process, I will ensure your book is clear, well-structured, compelling, and informative. I offer all stages of the editorial process, from editorial assessment (critique) to structural/content editing, copyediting, and proofreading. At the end of the editorial process, you’ll have a book that’s not just publishable – but worth publishing.
If you’ve written a book and want to get published, please get in touch. Whether you’re a non-native speaker or a first-time author, are self-publishing or seeking a traditional publisher, together, we’ll ensure your book is the best it can possibly be.
When you contact me, please tell me your book’s word count, genre, intended audience, aims, and anything else you feel is useful for me to know. If you have a budget or deadline in mind, you can also let me know this. If you know what type of editing you’re seeking, then that’s great, but if not, you can check out my guide – What Type of Editing Do You Need? If you’re still not sure, then get in touch and I can help you choose the right type of editing for you.
You can also check out my services and pricing guide, though please bear in mind that every book and every author is different, so we can agree a price that suits the project and your requirements.
