Copy Editing & Proofreading

As a self-confessed ‘grammazi’ and possessing a good eye for detail and context, I have written, copy edited and proofread many manuscripts in my time, including (but not limited to): novels, short stories, essays, training manuals, literacy tests, and news articles.

I work with authors to realise their aims and am very sensitive to each writer’s personal style, which should never be lost. It is a process I very much enjoy – even though, now that it is mainly done digitally, I often don’t get to use a red pen any more!

“Andy has worked with me on my last two novels, providing prompt and helpful copy editing advice and a thorough and detailed proofread.
Good copy editors and proofreaders are hard to find. Andy is one of them.”
Justin Newland, author of The Genes of Isis, The Old Dragon’s Head and The Coronation

“As an author, I know how important it is that my writing is published in the best possible state it can be. It was crucial to find a copy editor and proofreader that I could trust with my work. After using Andy’s services for my first two novels, I wouldn’t go to anyone else; his professionalism, attention to detail and ease of communication made the whole process run smoothly, and was excellent value for money. I’m delighted with the end result and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.”
Jackie Carreira, author of Sleeping Through War and The Seventh Train
