  • I carry out all aspects of fiction editing - developmental editing, copy-editing and proofreading.
  • I am happy to work on most genres and any length of MS, but most of my work has been in romance, thriller, murder mystery, young adult, travel, and memoir writing.
  • My prices are calculated according to each individual MS, but ball-park figures, based on an average 80,000 word book, are: developmental editing from £400, copy-editing from £600. and proofreading from £300. With regard to short stories and other short fiction I would generally suggest a combined edit/proofread at £15 per thousand words.

I take on any design project, right now I am focusing on book cover design and manuscript preparation for the self-publishing author. My fee for design and typography for a paperback and eBook and submitting same to Amazon KDP is £380.00. However, being semi-retired myself, I understand that some people are on a budget, and I recently completed such a project for just £190.00. I don't focus on any particular genre.  I also offer editing and coaching as an extra service, fee by arrangement. Contact details are on my website www.publishingbuddy.co.uk or 01702 294367
