Economy Edits

Many thanks, Nicole. Every moment has been a revelation and a joy. 🙂




happy i worked the weekend

No, it doesn’t make sense.

Until you learn that yesterday and today have slipped by me in swirls of meetings, queues, broken bikes and new office chairs.

So, because of the hours I put in on Saturday and Sunday, I should still be golden when it comes to completing the edit of G for ND on Sunday. I just need to buckle down and do the hours between now and then.

Yes, I could be editing now, instead of writing this drivel. But it’s an update. Of sorts. 😉


reading the next edit

Does that make sense?

As an editor, I sincerely hope so. 😉

Although, of course,  there is an element of play involved. 🙂

But what I mean is…

Late last night I requested and was sent a kindle-friendly copy of the next book I will be editing (from August 18th), so I have a chance to view it as a reader first before tackling as an editor. I did that with the current edit, and think it helps.

Here’s hoping. 🙂

Oh, and I’m currently LOVING working on the the current book, G, and have received nothing but positive replies from the author, who must be one of the more receptive and open writers I’ve ever come across, from a critique-receiving point of view. A joy to work with. 🙂


started work

So, I started working on ‘G’ on Friday, and continued today. Deadline is the 17th.

I’ve got to say… This is such an interesting story full of intriguing ideas, and with a chemistry between the two main characters that positively sizzles.

This is going to be fun. Work. But fun.

In other news, I updated the theme here (what do you think?), and will be linking to my website. Final update as and when. But nothing should change for you lovely people. It just makes me feel like I look more professional. Because, when it comes to the writers I work for, I absolutely am.


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. 🙂



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.
