A plane crash explodes into a desperate fight to save the world from a deadly secret weapon. As ex-army man Steven struggles to understand the mystery of its destructive power, he is locked into clearing the smears ruining the life of an old friend. And the one true love in his life. Was that a lie? Are his skills still strong enough to defeat the greatest enemy he’s ever yet had to face and reveal the truth hidden in the murky depths?

booking for July & beyond

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 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. 🙂



more new client news

Thanks directly to Chris the Story Reading Ape (THANKS, CHRIS – you an indie’s angel)

I can happily announce another new client, this one boasting an intriguing science fiction novella that I will work on in November. The writer is Melissa, and can be found here n here:


2015 editing sessions now available

Plan ahead, and book your 2015 editing needs with me.

It is never too early to schedule those all-important first and final edits for your book, to give you and it that extra advantage in tomorrow’s active and competitive indie writer market.

Even if you are not yet ready to submit your work for editing, if you book a slot with me (time dependent on estimated manuscript length, as in a 60k novel perhaps two weeks) I will hold that window open for you. But then we will also be able to bring it forward or push it back as you require, if your needs or schedule changes. Once you are “in” you have that advantage.

My rates are low, but my work is of a high quality. Please read my testimonials, marvel at my rates, and consider me for your editing requirements. I have worked on fiction and non-fiction of all lengths, from a blog post or 100 word story up to a 900 page (275,000 word) novel.

Or submit a short sample for a free trial edit. 🙂


space for one book edit

Okay, I have space for one more book edit in November, and one in December.

This could be full-length fiction, a collection of shorts, something non-fiction, blog entries – whatever it is you have that you want edited.

And it’s first come, first served.

Although, if you are someone seeking assistance, I will try my very best to find a way to help you.

Try me. 🙂


book now to guarantee today’s rates

I’ve been told I should charge more than I do. And when I look around at some other editors I realise my rates are low. But there are two good reasons for this:

  1. I’m relatively new to editing others’ works
  2. I want to make good editing financially possible to anyone

And so, while I probably should increase my rates from just $0.005 per word, and possibly will, if you pre-book at least one weekly time slot (dependent on book length: 30k = 1 wk) I will guarantee that I will only charge you my current rates. Even if I do increase them the moment after you book.

So, please, if you want good quality editing help with your manuscript, have a look at my testimonials, discover a little about who I am, ask any question you want, and then consider pre-booking me to help with your stories. Believe me, I will respect them as much as you, and will do my absolute best to improve your heartfelt words.

I am happy and experienced with both fiction and non-fiction, and will consider anything from a 1000 word short story or article to a 1000-page novel in your 10-volume series. 

I am definitely available for bookings from September 29th, possibly the week before. I look forward to hearing from you, and working with you. 🙂
