Claire Bradshaw – Editor

I'm a copyeditor and proofreader specialising in fantasy books. If you write about magic and made-up worlds, I'm the editor for you!

Overview

Hey, writers! I'm Claire, and I've been working as a freelance editor and proofreader since 2015. I specialise in speculative fiction, primarily fantasy, which is the genre I live and breathe.


I've worked with a range of fantasy and romantasy authors to shape Amazon bestsellers and award-nominated novels. Whether you're seeking a detailed copyedit to refine your manuscript on a line-by-line level, or you're ready for the final polish of a sharp-eyed proofread, I'd love to hear about your project.


CLIENT TESTIMONIALS


"I've had the privilege of working with Claire over the course of my entire career, and most recently, with my bestselling romantic fantasy series, THE LEGENDS OF THEZMARR. Without Claire's masterful attention to detail and dedication to refining my work, my books wouldn't be the success they are today.


Since my debut in 2017, Claire has worked for me as both a proofreader and a copyeditor over the years, and together we've worked on three epic fantasy series – all of them Amazon bestsellers. She never fails to provide considerate, constructive feedback, and her reliability is exactly what an author needs throughout the editing process."


—Helen Scheuerer, author of THE LEGENDS OF THEZMARR


***


"Claire was our first choice for our in-house editor here at Talem Press. Not only has she been closely involved in the production of our founder's bestselling trilogy, THE OREMERE CHRONICLES, but she is also editor for THE RELIC TRILOGY, the bestselling YA fantasy series from Bronwyn Eley, and the breathtaking adult fantasy series THE PRICE OF MAGIC by Bonnie Wynne, including the Aurealis Award–nominated THE NINTH SORCERESS.


Claire's professionalism is unparalleled and her dealings with our authors are nothing short of exceptional. We can't recommend her editorial services enough."

Claire is wonderful to work with. She vastly improved the manuscript with insightful edits and suggestions. She met all her deadlines, communicated clearly, and provided great value for her work. I look forward to working with her again in the future.
