Creating Perfection ~ freelance fiction editor

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.’

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.

Let me help you the way I’ve helped these authors…

‘Emma was a dream to work with and played a huge part in helping get my MS submission-ready. I have no doubt that her work on my MS helped me get a contract with one of the top publishers in the UK and I will always be grateful for that. Highly recommend her services.’

‘I remain indebted to Emma for helping me hone my debut novel before it’s publication. Her eye for detail was superb, and she identified areas that the reader would benefit from in the murky haze of a spy & forensic thriller that had pace – but needed to be more precise. Highly recommended and great to work with!’
