Creating Perfection


Welcome to Creating Perfection.

I’m Emma, a freelance copy-editor and proofreader from Bradford, West Yorkshire.

I work with indie and self-published authors on most genres of fiction and can edit your manuscript to either British or American English spelling and grammar rules. The benefits of a fresh pair of eyes can never be underestimated and overfamiliarity with your words can mean mishaps are easily missed.

Whether you need help with the direction of your work in progress, need advice on your synopsis and submission package, or are ready for a detailed edit or proofread, I can help.

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 hope you find the answers to all your questions here and look forward to discussing your project with you in more detail.

Emma xxx

‘Emma was recommended to me through a discussion site, Book Connectors on Facebook, for authors. They have my heartfelt thanks. There seem to be a lot of bad editors out there but the gods were smiling on me when I found Emma. She took my manuscripts and turned them into something far better than I could ever have achieved. She is professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. Emma, and the process I went through with her, made me a better writer, more confident in my abilities, and more aware of the pitfalls I had unerringly found trying to go solo. Thoroughly recommended and worth every penny she charges.’

‘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.’
