I'll help you strengthen your narrative voice, polish your craft, and deliver a book that's true to your vision.

I'm open, collaborative and flexible, and I've worked across multiple genres in both trad and indie publishing.

I'm tight on story and structural work, but also a meticulous copy-editor.

If you don't have a finished manuscript, I can still help. I love to coach aspiring authors, levelling up their technique and confidence as they tackle the first draft.

Andrew has worked on all four of my Phil Tyler Mystery Thriller series. The fact that I can't imagine ever working with anyone else is a testament to the relationship we've built and the outstanding quality of his work.

Barry Litherland, September 2022


Chele Cooke
Andrew is not only a talented editor, giving the highest quality in work, he's also an exceptional person. He's highly collaborative, and his passion for projects shines through his comments and advice. He kept me updated every step of the way, and our calls to go through his work displayed how much he loves what he does. He devotes himself to making a project the absolute best it can be, and I...

Justin Cembal
Andrew elevated my voice. I've had experiences in the past where a less experienced editor had stripped down and redressed parts of my manuscript into a gauche costume of what I was going for. Andrew did the exact opposite. He sharpened the text and where he was necessarily heavy handed it was with elegance and an experienced ability to maintain my years of effort. From trimming redundancy ...

Justin Cembal, June 2022


Andrew Copeman
Andrew is extremely professional to work with, and executed the brief slightly ahead of the original schedule. His commentary and advice at key points on the manuscript is pointed and delivered without unnecessary over-elaboration. I'd have no qualms about working with him again in the future. Indeed, I hope to do so.

Andrew Copeman, February 2022


Barry Litherland
I've worked with Andrew on four books now and I would work with him on others, without hesitation. His attention to detail, thorough and precise work, and helpful and unstinting advice were better than anything I could have imagined. He could not have been more helpful or more professional.
