diary/schedule now posted

As the subject says: my Diary & Schedule is now posted here:

Please contact me if you think I can be of any help, if you would like to take advantage of my free 1000 word sample edit, or if you have any questions regarding what I do, how I do it, or… well, just about anything edit-related, I guess. 🙂




How Brave Are You?

HOW BRAVE ARE YOU? is the working title of the compelling and eye-opening book I have been editing for the wonderful Nicole Delacroix:

It is a riveting and sexyfun read, being a somewhat voyeuristic ride through the innermost thoughts of all the kind (and kinky) souls who anonymously completed Nicole’s questionnaire. I was intrigued, shocked, amused and (yes, I’ll admit it, a little) titillated by its honesty and good-time-sass. 😮 🙂

So yes, the final run-through is now complete, and I want to thank Nicole for letting me play a part in her crazywonderful ride, and wish her & HBAY all the very best in finding an agent/publisher.

The question now is: HOW BRAVE IS AN AGENT?

If you think you know of one who might just be brave and insightful enough to be interested in an unputdownably sexy read, please get in touch. 🙂



more work in my inbox – Blood & Oil by M.A. Leibfritz

I am delighted and honoured to announce that M.A. Leibfritz has chosen me to edit her sci-fi/fantasy novel BLOOD & OIL.

Due to current commitments, work won’t begin before August 15th, but after reading and sample-editing the opening pages, I must say the story pulled me in and intrigued me, and I am seriously looking forward to working on this project.

Many thanks to Tamsin over at for the recommendation.



available for work from August 18th

Hello from


I will have one or two pieces of final edit work to do after August 18th, taking 5-10 days, but they will need to be scheduled as and when the authors are ready.

Apart from those, I am available to work on new projects. 🙂

So, if you have some editing/copyediting/line-editing you want doing, please contact me by posting a reply to this with your email address, or email me direct at

I am happy to work on anything from a one-page letter to a 500,000 word novel. Or longer. Although, obviously, that monster-novel will take a much longer commitment than the letter.

My rates are still just £3 or $5 per 1000 words, or a flat £3/$5 fee for anything shorter. For shorter pieces I will invoice upon completion, but for longer works I will invoice half when I begin and half upon completion, with an option (not obligatory) for a half-price final read through whenever you have completed any alterations.

Please read my testimonials page for more insight, and/or forward a 1000 word sample for me to work on and return, free of charge, no obligation, for you to decide whether you want to work with me.

I am already  looking forward to working with you. 😉


mini update, with schedule to come

Just to keep you up to speed on what I’m working on…

Currently working through the line edit for the second Munchkin series book. Yay!

Then there will be a final edit check for HBAY – you wouldn’t believe me if I told you. 😮

Then I’m hoping to work through a final edit check on Munchkin 2.

And THEN I’m hoping to work on a different book by one of the above authors; and THEN a different book by the other author. 🙂 🙂

When I have confirmation regarding these, and have figured out my schedule, I will announce availability and actively seek more books to edit and clients to help. However, if you would already like me to consider you, please contact me @

Otherwise I shall post n request as and when.

I will happily edit fiction or non-fiction, any length; and will also help with blurbs, promotions, letters etc.

Try me.

Rates are currently just £3 or $5 per 1000 words.

two of the loveliest writers

I just want to say what a pleasure it is to be working with Kimberly Morgan & Nicole Delacroix on their manuscripts. They are two of the sweetest people, especially considering how I’m nitpicking their babies.
