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.

‘Professional, helpful, and very approachable. A truly top-notch editor.’

‘I cannot recommend Emma highly enough. She has been endlessly patient with me, as a debut author in developing my manuscript. Her editing is forensic in detail and her constructive criticisms of the plot and pace of the book have helped me enormously to construct “Going Dark” into a novel I will be proud of. She has helped me to understand that my desire for realism has to be balanced with the need for excitement and intrigue. As an ex police officer this has been of huge value. Thank you so very much.’
