Editing Service

Do you keep getting knock-backs from literary agents?

An objective view of your book from someone in the publishing industry can help you solve problems such as tangled storylines, flat characters, and cliched writing.

As a published author, I know just how soul-destroying it is when the rejection letters are piling up; I also know how tailored your novel needs to be before a literary agent will champion it. That’s why I’m offering an editorial packages.

I will give your novel my all – reading it and writing a report about it, including an in-depth look at structure, narrative drive, characterisation, plot and writing style, followed by an optional hour and a half follow-up telephone or Skype brainstorming session.

Editor’s Report – Up to 90,000 words plus synopsis – £400

Mentoring – This is open to writers who want one-to-one encouragement to finish and finesse that novel. Packages are individual, but can include two hours per month – one hour will involve me reading your work, and the second hour will be a meeting either via Skype or face to face. It’s up to you. I will help you power-up your writing, strengthen your story and synopsis, and eventually help with your submissions to literary agents. Drop me a line on the email below to find out more.

About me: My debut novel The Maid’s Room was published in hardback by Hodder & Stoughton in November 2017. The paperback arrives on 19 April this year. I have just finished my second novel which will be published by Hodder & Stoughton (date TBC).
