These are often common overlooked issues in newly written manuscripts:


• Organisation

• Flow and continuity

• Spelling, punctuation and spelling

• Fixing redundant words and passages (less is more)


Writing a novel can be a magical but sometimes difficult journey. But when your first draft is complete, that journey is not over.


Problems with punctuation, spelling and grammar?  A proofreader looks for errors such as misspelled words, words that are correctly spelt but mean something different, misuse of apostrophes, and so on.


An editor will read your work in the guise of a very critical reader, giving feedback on all aspects of your writing. Such as characters, plot, style and pace.


An editor and proofreader can be an invaluable service to detect small but insignificant writing mishaps, or to help your writing realise the essence of its voice and meaning.


We can work with you to make sure your book is the best it can be.




We will check for typographical errors such as spelling, grammar and punctuation. We will also give minor advice and recommendations for the text, in the aim of improving its style and overall flow.


You can view your final edit before your approval of it.


Full Edit:


This is a more through procedure. We will review the content and quality of your manuscript, addressing tone, style, voice and organisation. If it is a fiction book we will also check for major plot holes and any character inconsistencies and suggest improvements on dialogue and overall pace of the story.


You will be in constant contact with the editor or proofreaderthroughout and can discuss the procedure in depth at the time, all changes can be reverted. The aim is for your complete satisfaction of the finished edit.


You can have your final edited document back, regardless of your decisions to publish and print it. Or you can have the editing/proofreading as part of a publishing package, it is entirely up to you and flexible to your needs.
