Clare FlocktonEditor

Ottawa, ON, Canada

I am an editor who loves to read anything I can get my hands on. I want to work with you to make your work flawless and publishable.

Overview

I am a voracious reader with five years editing experience, making me the perfect editor for you. As well as my editing experience, I run my own tutoring business helping students from age 6 through to university age better grasp the nuances of the English language while focusing on creating flawless copy.

I understand that you want to make sure your novel is impeccable. I want to help you reach that goal.

I have a keen eye for detail. I have an exceptional grasp of grammatical conventions, and will be able to detect spelling errors, punctuation, as well make suggestions on how to correct any plot weakness.

I can suggest rewrites and even give suggestions that you are able to accept or decline; after all the work is yours and must belong to you.

I am presently seeking:
YA authors
Romance authors (contemporary)
Erotica authors

I have reasonable rates; we can work on an hourly wage or flat rate. My turn around time is extremely quick.

Please feel free to contact me to request a quote.


Thank you very much
Clare Flockton
