Welcome to Creating Perfection.
I’m Emma Mitchell, a freelance fiction editor from Bradford, West Yorkshire.
Working with a professional editor is one of the most important steps on your publishing journey.
I offer a complete publishing service, from developmental and copy-editing to proofreading and formatting, synopsis assistance to editorial guidance, I will guide you through the whole publishing process.
Whether you intend to submit to agents and/or publishers, or you’re self-publishing, presenting your readers with a manuscript that is the best it can be is essential.
I work closely with all my authors to ensure I know what they want from me, what their hopes are for the reader’s experience, and to get to know their characters just as much as they do.
I pride myself on balancing the voice of the author with the needs of the reader.
‘Emma doesn’t just make corrections for me; she has an incredible ability to understand my voice and make changes that enhance my work in so many ways. Without her edit of The Afterlife of Walter Augustus, I doubt very much that it would have won the Kindle Storyteller Award or the been a Gold Medallist at the IPPY Awards. She has now edited four books for me with two more in the pipeline. Working with Emma is always a pleasure.’
Hannah Lynn – award-winning author
Whether you need help with the direction of your work in progress, advice on your synopsis and submission package, or are ready for a complete edit or proofread, I can help. I work with indie and self-published authors in most genres of fiction and can edit your manuscript to either British or American English spelling and grammar rules.
