Joseph Diskett - Editor

Brisbane, Australia

Editor specialising in commercial/genre fiction — let's work together to make your book the best it can be!

Overview

Hi! I'm Joseph.
I'm a freelance editor, and while my 'home genre' is speculative fiction, I work with all kinds of commercial (or 'genre') fiction.

I believe it's vitally important for an author and their editor to have a relationship grown on trust, and that's why I like to work with my clients all the way from the initial structural report to the nitty-gritty proofreading.

I offer three basic levels of editing:
Structural Report — Where I read your manuscript and provide a written report providing feedback on the strengths and weaknesses of the plot, pacing, characters, worldbuilding etc, with suggestions for improvement.
Copyedit — We'll work together to improve the story at the sentence-level, making small changes to improve the overall narrative.
Proofread — A final pass over the manuscript to check for spelling and grammar errors to ensure it's ready for publishing.

But every author is different, and we can work out what kind of editing plan works best for you!
