Whatever you want to achieve with your writing, I can help you get there. Whether it be to pitch a self help guide to a publishing house, put together a collection of service user narratives and accounts, or write an autobiography for family and friends I can help you achieve that dream.
With over a decade's worth of experience in-house and working as a freelance editor, I have a wealth of knowledge and understanding that I can bring to your manuscript. My expertise lies in performing manuscript assessments, and developmental edits, looking in particular at the structure of your manuscript and the style of your writing. I will always give you a detailed report and be available if you have any questions before, during, or after.
I can also provide direction and advice on how to proceed once your manuscript is ready, including putting together a synopsis for agents, developing an elevator pitch, and writing a covering letter that will get you noticed.
I help authors at various stages during the writing process. Together we structure and plan out the manuscript they want to write, then I read through and comment on drafts until a manuscript is ready for submission. Once complete, I work with designers and typesetters to create the perfect book.
I read and gave feedback on submissions.
I worked with authors during the production phase of the publishing process. I took the typescript through copyediting, typesetting, proofreading, indexing, and printing stages.

To the public, he was some kind of noble "IQ warrior" or that disgraceful "race and IQ guy."
