The author of nine published novels, I have over fifteen years editing, proof-reading, and ghost-writing experience. In that time, I've worked with all kinds of different writers - from first-time authors to the far more established - on all kinds of different projects: fiction, non-fiction, biography/memoir, self-help books, scientific and academic texts etc. My last big project was editing and providing additional content for a memoir for a Wolf of Wall Street type character, a rag to riches story of a man from an abusive and impoverished background who conquered the financial markets. The client was so happy with the end result, he is currently querying U.S. literary agents. In terms of my working practises, I will edit your manuscript in three stages. Firstly, a basic edit to eradicate any typos, grammatical lapses, repetition of words/phrases, etc. Secondly, a more developmental edit focusing on structure, pacing, character development/arcs etc. And thirdly, a final read through to ensure your work has that essential professional polish. I use Track Changes in Word and can make a start right away. I look forward to hearing from you.
