Creating Perfection


You’ve finished your manuscript and are taking the next step towards getting published.

Whether you’re self-publishing or going for a traditional publishing contract, you have recognised that you need to get your manuscript checked by a professional copy-editor and/or proofreader.

I am an experienced and established freelance copy-editor based in West Yorkshire, who offers several flavours of editing services to suit the needs of the author and the project. I have worked on over 100 manuscripts over the last twelve months alone.

You will find details of all my services, rates, portfolio, and lots of advice for authors on the various pages. From submission critiques to developmental editing, pesky plot lines and cheeky characters, I can help you ensure your manuscript is practically perfect in every way.

You can see some of my past projects here: My Editing Portfolio

I’d be delighted to have a chat with you about your project and will happily provide you with a sample edit so you can see how I work and we can see if I’ll be the right for you and your manuscript.

I promise to sensitively and delicately balance your voice with the needs of your readers.

‘Emma was recommended to me through a discussion site, Book Connectors on Facebook, for authors. They have my heartfelt thanks. There seem to be a lot of bad editors out there but the gods were smiling on me when I found Emma. She took my manuscripts and turned them into something far better than I could ever have achieved. She is professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. Emma, and the process I went through with her, made me a better writer, more confident in my abilities, and more aware of the pitfalls I had unerringly found trying to go solo. Thoroughly recommended and worth every penny she charges.’

‘Hi Emma, Thank you so much for this, it is incredible. I have only had a chance to briefly look through it, but it’s so clear that you understood my style and voice.

As soon as the next one in the series is complete I shall most certainly be calling upon you!’
