They’re tricky little things.

One minute you’re confident that yours are perfect then the next minute a niggling
doubt creeps in.

Like the feeling that there’s a monster in the closet waiting to jump out at you, you won’t know if there’s anything there until someone else takes a peek.

That’s where editors come in.

Yup, this is me. Yes, it’s green.

We’re not afraid to have a look and see whether there’s anything wrong, or to give you the reassurance that everything’s OK.

My name is Sara and I’m an editor specialising in historical fiction and non-fiction. I understand that you want your words to shine: you want your product to be the best, whether that’s a book, a play script, a brochure or even your business documentation.

I offer an editing service that is tailor-made to your needs. Whether you need a copy-edit, a proofread or something in-between I can help. I also index books if that’s what you want – don’t forget that indexes are a gateway to the knowledge hidden inside your book.

If you need editing, proofreading or indexing, need a handy FAQ page for when you’re unsure or want to read a weekly blog that talks about all things freelance, have a look around my site and see what I can do for you.

Contact me and we can talk through your individual editorial needs.

Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders
