Creating Perfection ~ freelance fiction editor

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, I can 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.’

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.

You will also find a wealth of information in my blog posts, from case studies on self-published authors to self-editing help, there’s something for everyone.

‘I found Emma on Twitter and contacted her to do the edit on my trilogy: The Hope Prophecy. She told me when she could get to each one, and when I would get them back. She then did what few editors have ever done before: got them back before, or exactly when promised. I can’t even begin to articulate how professional her work is. It was the most thorough well managed edit I’ve ever had, and the end result was a much better book. Emma is a gem of an editor, and her advice is spot on. She’ll get all my books from now on and is now an essential part of my team.’
