Lucy Littlejohns – Editor

Fastidious fiction proofreader focusing on romance, horror, thriller and fantasy. I work for publishers including Bonnier Books and Solaris.

Overview

I'm a proofreader with a passion for fiction - usually romance, but I also enjoy horror, thriller and fantasy (just to balance it out). I have spent the last few years proofreading novels and short stories for publishers such as Bonnier Books and Solaris.

In addition to being a voracious reader, I have always been very meticulous about spelling and grammar. Proofreading makes me happy as I get to indulge in my obsession!

I take great pride in what I do and look forward to giving your work the finishing polish. You can rest assured that I will take great care with your work and communicate with you regularly throughout the process.


"Lucy has been fantastic throughout the proofreading process. Her communication is excellent, including regular updates on progress as well as ongoing feedback. What's more is that Lucy is prepared to ask tough questions in order to make sure that both her and the author are on the same page. I would not hesitate to use Lucy again for all of my future publications. She is a pleasure to work with and a consummate professional." - Jym Brown, author of 'Clever Enough to be Stupid'
