fiction editing and proofreading

Specialist fiction editing for authors and publishing houses

Hi, I’m Louise and I’m an experienced fiction editor. I offer careful, sensitive and thorough editorial services to independent authors at all stages of your writing career. I work with trade publishers too, and I’ve recently edited for Titan Books, Allison & Busby, whitefox (for Head of Zeus) and Bloomsbury Publishing.

If you want the best for your book and your readers, editing is a necessary step in the publishing process. If you are a new and emerging author the prospect of publishing your book by yourself can be scary. But it needn’t be if you can find the right help and the right editor who clicks with you and your story.

I believe that every project deserves to be treated with sensitivity, honesty and respect. I appreciate how much time, energy and emotion it takes to write a novel. You’ve brought your characters to life and painstakingly built your fictional world. You’ve made sacrifices, and this is not something to be taken lightly. I will take the time to understand your needs and work with you to make your text the very best it can be.

I’ll be an advocate of your book, celebrating the parts that work well and helping you identify the areas you can make better. I’ll support you on your journey to publication.

So, take your time and have a look around and at the end of your visit I really hope you’d like to work with me.

First class edit. Clear, helpful, really couldn’t ask for better. – A Segal, crime writer
