What you get with this Offer
I will read and assess a chapter of your book and give you written feedback* based on my 16 years' experience as an author coach and editor. If you are preparing a sample to submit to literary agents I can help you get your work ready to send off, including proofreading and formatting a sample of up to 12 pages and drafting a cover letter (see add-ons below).
I have worked on non-fiction, fiction, autobiography, memoir, science and technical (STM), travel guides, historical fiction, fantasy, erotica, sci-fi, true crime, new age and religious texts, self-help and workbooks, and I will consider any other genres on a case by case basis. Several of the authors I have worked with have successfully published their work.
If you want to get your whole book edited, I can do this too. Based on my assessment of your initial chapter I can provide the level of editing your manuscript needs including:
> development editing to improve deep structure (with in-depth feedback)
> copy-editing to improve flow (without feedback)
> proofreading to prepare your manuscript for submission
I provide the whole service!
Recent feedback for my work copy-editing a true-crime novel:
“I am delighted to recommend Rebecca, not just for her proofreading and editing skills, but for her ability to grasp the core issues involved in a very complex work of non- fiction. Rebecca took my rough piece of coal which she quickly fashioned into a polished diamond. I thoroughly recommend her professionalism, but please form an orderly queue for her services behind me.”
- John Morris, author of The Clydach Murders
*Feedback will comprise approximately 1 A4 page of typed notes and will include an assessment of the level of editing required to bring the manuscript up to scratch.
What the Freelancer needs to start the work
I will need a sample of your book (the first chapter and a synopsis if you have one) as a Word document.
*Note that for your peace of mind I adhere to strict codes of confidentiality at all times and you will be asked to sign my standard non disclosure agreement for this purpose.*
