Having conferred and arranged work with my regular clients for 2015, I find the following dates remain open and available, should you want to book my editing services:
Also, if you are desperate for something to be edited outside of these dates, please still try me, as I am an able juggler.
I am happy to work on fiction, non-fiction, blog posts, essays – wherever you would like help.
I still offer the FREE 1000 WORD SAMPLE EDIT, if you want to try me that way.
Looking ahead, I am willing to pencil in editing jobs for 2016, if you think you might have something requiring work by a certain time, or if you have a schedule for an ongoing series, for example, and know roughly when your first and final edits should be completed.
My rates for 2016 are likely to increase to £4 or $6 per 1000 words, but any work booked before July 2015 will be guaranteed 2015 rates of £3.33 or $5, so book early to save money.
Whatever your editing needs, please feel free to try me – I’m easy. 😮 😉
We are happy to announce that we will be working with Ernesto Pavan in July. Some of you may already know him from some helpful suggestions on Google+ or his
As for Ernesto himself… “I’m a crazy Italian who writes in English, loves Indian and Japanese food, and writes about weird stuff.”
Having seen how quickly my available editing slots filled up this last week, I thought it wise to announce that I am now happy to accept bookings for July 22* and beyond.
I will consider any length, fiction or non-fiction, blogs or articles…
If you are ready to book, simply let me know your word count and preferred range of dates, and I will reply as soon as possible.
If you would rather take advantage of my free 1000 word sample edit before deciding, please forward that to me at email@example.com with a short synopsis and full manuscript word count, and I will work on it and return as soon as possible, and you can see if we will be a good fit.
Despite suggestions from many that I should increase my fees, they remain as low as they were, despite my experience ever-improving my abilities. 🙂
I look forward to hearing from you soon, and working with you later.
* was originally July 11, but a new client has since been scheduled. 🙂
I know I have said it before, but I will say it again…
I edit for the most wonderful writers. I really do. I feel truly blessed.

21/01-31/01 … MBS 1st

I don’t edit for others as much as I could, because I also like to write my own fiction. And I probably don’t charge as much as I could, but I’m still happy with my rates. The above will provide a liveable income, and possibly even help fund a dream holiday I would like to take to the USA around the end of March/early April. So things are looking decidedly rosy today, and it’s all thanks to these wonderful writers and their amazing imaginations. 🙂
Yes, that’s right. Thanks to a friend of a dear friend, I will now be helping to sub-edit a collection of horror stories. More information will be made available nearer the publication date, which is expected to be around Thanksgiving (in the USA). But I am so looking forward to this. Of course, it does mean that the scheduled re-editing work on my own zombie story has been postponed, but I couldn’t say no. 🙂
Tonight I am VERY pleased to announce that in December I will be working with Geraldine Evans on the latest novel in her British Detective series. I’ve already begun reading the first, and it’s a page-turner. Find her here:
