Andrew Brassleay – Editor

Copy-editor and proofreader with over 20 years in the trade on newspapers, magazines, books and websites.


Having worked on both print and digital platforms, including app editions, I am trained in using Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat.

Subject areas I've covered across my career, and not just in book publishing, include: celebrity; charity; current affairs; education; fashion; film; food; gaming; health; leadership and management; literature; military history; news; property; puzzles; sport; theatre; travel; television.

Please see below for books I've either worked on as either a copy-editor or proofreader. I'm adaptable, whether you just want me to look out for spelling and grammar, or interrogate the text with an opinionated edit.
