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.

As a debut novelist, Emma was the perfect editor for me. She kept me on track, helped steady my nerves, and shaped my book in ways I hadn’t thought of. Without her encouragement and guidance there is no way my novel would be currently riding high in the rankings. I look forward to working with Emma on my next manuscript and think she is an absolute star!’
