My editorial services

Alongside my writing, I am a copy-editor and proofreader with over twenty years of professional wordworking experience. I've edited and proofread over seventy books for trade publishers, including fiction for adults, teens and children, along with travel, sport, lifestyle and history.

I've also worked for academic and corporate clients, was a commissioning editor at Random House South Africa, and have led novel-writing and copy-editing courses at the Writers College and for the Professional Editors' Guild. I am an Advanced Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.

Services offered:

My competitive rates vary according the scope of the job.

A sample edit (£190 / R2,800) is a popular starting point for independent book clients. I copy-edit the first 10,000 words of your manuscript – enough to start a style sheet and identify particular areas for attention. I provide an editorial report and you can choose whether to continue the job, at a lower rate.

Email me at LGedits@pm.me for quotes and enquiries.

These are just some of the brilliant books I've worked on:
