Services for Authors, Illustrators, Publishers, Agents and Other Organisations
Below are just a few areas I work in. I have a wide range of skills across children's publishing, so if there's anything you want to get in touch about that isn't listed here, please do. Even if I'm not the right person for the job, I probably know someone who is.
Prices vary based on each project and I will tailor costs to an individual piece of work. I am more than happy to discuss your requirements and budget.
PROJECT DEVELOPMENT FOR PICTURE BOOKS AND BABY BOOKS
PROOFREADING AND COPYEDITING
FOR YOUNG FICTION AND MIDDLE GRADE
You have an idea for a book and you know what you want to achieve, but perhaps you aren't quite sure how to do it. Or maybe you have a draft ready but it needs some work to really fit the bill. I can talk you through formats and styles, and help develop a book from a simple brief. If your book is already written, I can provide development suggestions and look at accessibility so you can be sure the book suits a wide audience of readers.
Have a great story and want to get it ready for publishing? I am available for proofreading and copyediting, and can also provide developmental editing if you're still at the earlier stages with your manuscript. I will also highlight changes you can make that will open up a book to more readers (and sometimes retailers).
If you're an author / illustrator thinking about contacting agents and publishers, I can provide assistance as you write your pitch as well as give you an overview of what you need to know about publishing.
I'm also available to agents who need an experienced reader to assess submissions.
