I currently work as a Commissioning Editor for CRC Press / Taylor & Francis, an international book publisher. I read and assess book proposals, book drafts and manuscripts on a daily basis. Each year, I work with over 100 authors. My experience is in academic, professional and/or non-fiction style books. I am happy to work with either UK or US English.
For chapter and manuscript drafts, I can provide development feedback on the content, structure and formatting of the manuscript. This can encompass elements such as text flow, style and phrasing, section ordering, scope, missing content, length reduction and market analysis. This will ensure that your manuscript has the best style, approach and content for its market and goals.
I can also provide copyediting and/or proofreading, where I will be assessing the grammar, spelling and readability of the text. Copyediting is more intensive and can involve rewriting sentences or paragraphs where necessary. This will ensure that your content is clear, well-structured, and comes across in a convincing way. Proofreading is a more basic service, picking up on errors within the text.
I am also experienced in giving advice on the content and formatting of book proposals, helping to turn an idea into a fully-formed outline. When assessing or creating book proposals, I can explain which information is most important to include, how much information each section should contain, and exactly what an editor will be looking for when assessing the proposal.
I have experience working on computer science, cybersecurity, networking, communication, management, business, entrepreneurship, auditing, engineering and emerging technology (AI, 5G, IoT, metaverse) books, so I am particularly qualified to assess proposals and manuscripts in these areas.
“I recently worked with Gabby for both development editing and copyediting of my latest book, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. She is meticulous in her attention to detail, catching every typo and error and suggesting clarifications and improvements to the language. The development edit was also incredibly helpful, offering valuable insights and suggestions for how to structure and organize the book for maximum impact, as well as more specific comments where I could improve particular paragraphs. Her services helped to transform my manuscript into a polished, professional work that I am proud to have published. I highly recommend her services to any author looking to take their writing to the next level."
