Author or Publisher Services

With you all the way, from the first draft to the book launch.

First-time writers

You’ve written your first manuscript; now what?

Get in touch and tell me about your manuscript, your genre, your target audience and your dreams. Firstly, I will evaluate the manuscript and give you objective feedback. Then, I will recommend the services that you require to develop your writing. Services range from developmental editing, structural editing, line editing and copy editing to proofreading. I will also advise you about the difference between traditional publishing and self-publishing. If you wish to secure a publishing deal, I will help you to be in a prepared position to approach a publisher. If you would rather self-publish, I will guide you through all the steps required to publish your book.

Manuscripts undergo a selection process.

“Elizabeth was essential to the success of my book and beyond. I self-published my debut book using Elizabeth’s book editing and proofreading services, and I could not have done it so well without her. From the very first time I contacted Elizabeth, she had golden advice to offer in terms of adjusting the content to make it more appealing to the reader without losing my tone of voice. She is highly competent, very professional, hardworking, and delivers beyond expectations. I would suggest using Elizabeth’s services to anyone in an instant. Not only does she do her job exceptionally well, but she goes the extra mile by providing the support, guidance, and encouragement one would need amid a daunting project. Thank you, Elizabeth!”
