How can I help you with your writing?

Academic novels

Are you looking for a fact checker or a proofreader to insure a mistake-free draft, also consistent in spelling, style, and terminology? I have experience of the academic publisher route. In 2018 I published with Palgrave Macmillan (Young People, Learning & Storytelling).

Are you a writer looking for a first 10,000 words edit, before submitting your book to a book agent or publisher? This may be a more affordable option for you, to get the writing sample and synopsis proofread before sending to an agent or publisher. Thus increasing your chances of them wanting to see more.

Self-published Ebooks

Ebook sales are on the rise. It is an exciting time to be a writer. It enables us to be in complete control of our vision without having to compromise with traditional mainstream publishers. With Amazon's tough policy, however, on removing books from its sales with typos, and a saturated Ebook market have your book stand out for the right reasons: your story. Don't be caught out by reader references saying: great story, shame about the typos, punctuation and grammar. I offer both proofreading and copyediting services. Big tip: if you are in the drafting stage the book is not ready for proofreading yet. Work on it until you are happy. Then sign up for a service like Scribo and get reader feedback (but do not rely on for proofreading). Then rewrite and come back to me for the final polish. What you will have is a highly improved script ready for the final errors to be removed.

Traditional publishing

I can help with children's story proofreading to academic texts on subjects such as biology, sociology, politics and literature. A tidy manuscript is a sign of a professional publishing business. Ensure that your manuscript is in tip-top form with spelling, grammar and punctuation consistency before the final print.

Book agents

If you are looking to hire an external native-English speaker to make final checks before submitting a manuscript to publishers you have found the right place.

Google Business reviews

If you are looking for an ebook editor you can trust, this is the right place. Please get in touch. I’m an actual person, not a robot or software proofing your work. I can provide feedback on the structural side, or a proofread to the level and budget you need.


Amazon Ebook publishing


“If an e-book only contains a few spelling mistakes, but is still readable, a simple warning message will appear on the details page of that specific title. It will make the average book buyer aware that there are some issues. If the book has bad formatting issues, and basically renders it unreadable Amazon will suppress it and the book listing will be removed.”

"I hired Emma to proofread my book Travelling While Black. I have to say I'm impressed. She did an amazing job! It really feels like it was written by a native-English speaker! The sentences were just above average, and thanks to Emma, they're now excellent! Thank you very much!"
