Services

I supply an on-screen copyediting and proofreading service (using Microsoft Word).

Adobe Acrobat Reader is the software I use to do on-screen proofreading.

Email me your files, together with your brief and the house style you’d like me to follow, so I’ll know your requirements.

I’m familiar with both UK and US style, and have copyedited many books in either style. (See the portfolio page on this website.)

I no longer edit on paper (also known as ‘hard copy’ editing), as it’s far faster and more efficient to edit on a computer (also known as ‘on screen’ editing).

For publishers

Subject areas

  • Biblical studies
  • Theology
  • Church history
  • History (ancient and modern)
  • Psychology
  • English literature
  • Biography
  • Natural health (herbal supplements and natural cures)

For authors

I recommend you go the self-publishing route rather than seeking a literary agent to promote your book to a publisher, or trying to find a publisher for your book.

Why?

Because (1) few literary agents seem willing to look over new manuscripts, (2) few publishers are willing to take the risk of publishing new authors’ works, and (3) you’ll see your book in print a lot faster.

In my opinion your time and money would be better spent in self-publishing your book on Amazon.

Hire me to find the best keywords for your book (so searchers will find your book faster), check your book’s structure, spelling and grammar – and even format your book correctly to Amazon’s specifications.

I’ll also project manage your book’s cover design and typesetting, if you don’t have the time (or desire) to do this.

Cost

Once we’ve discussed your requirements, within 24 hours I’ll email you a breakdown of my charges and timescale, so you can decide whether or not to go ahead.
