“Andrew was a key part of the book getting over the line. A strong attention to detail and always thinking about story as well as copy. Very impressed. Highly recommended.”
The Final Flight
“Andrew is a peerless editor. Easy to deal with, fast, honest with his insights. Without him, I would still be floundering in doubt. Can't wait to work with him again.“
Byron TD Smith
“Working with Andrew is the literary equivalent of having a personal trainer. He's encouraging, instructive and great at tightening up flabby prose.“
After The Flood
“All my expectations were exceeded. Andrew is thorough and communicative, and his work went way beyond the brief. I couldn't have been more fortunate in my choice of editor.“
The Trophy Room
“Andrew is prompt, thorough and personable. I've worked with him three times, and there's a simple reason why I keep coming back: he takes my writing and makes it more ME.“
What type of edit do you need?
1. Writing Coaching
You have plenty of ideas, but you need help with style principles, story and character concepts, and turning your notes into a clear outline.
Work with me over a series of phone calls or Zoom sessions, where we’ll develop your writing voice, and build your confidence to get words onto the page.
2. Structural Editing
Your manuscript is written, or in progress. You need help with the bigger picture, as the story takes shape.
I’ll critique your work, paying close attention to pacing, development, plot, plausibility, style and character.
You’ll then be able to redraft and move on to the pre-production stage.
3. Copy & Line Editing
Your manuscript has been scrutinised and redrafted. You need a close-up copy edit to prepare for publication.
I’ll rework clunky sentences, kill typos and tics, check facts, and polish everything for the optimum reader experience.
Your writing will then be ready to transform into a broadcast-quality book.
