Writing a great book is so much more than the right words in the right order. When beautifully written with depth and passion, a book becomes memorable and cherished or shares genuine value with the world. That’s my job as a freelance book editor and author coach.

I’ve worked with business owners who want to share their expertise, fictional authors on YA novels, people struggling with their mental health who use writing as therapy, and those who have words worth sharing.

I’m a multi-award winning business owner, published author, and some of my clients have hit bestseller status, and I work with national and international clients. With almost a decade of experience in storytelling, I’ve edited and proofread over 4.5 million words, but for me, what really matters is the connection. And so, I’m selective about who I work with and only take on two to four clients per month then I can truly dedicate the time to each book and client.

Whether you are writing or have finished your business book, self-help guide, a short novella, or a 150,000-word YA novel, I can help you write, edit, and market to your own target audience.

Even without the brand or author, I bet you know who I’m referring to when I say “Because you’re worth it”, “Just do it”, and “A rose by any other name…”. It all comes down to knowing your audience and marketing to them.

Freelance book editor and author coach - 5-star client reviews and all 5-star book reviews.

As a professional writer and writing coach, I’ve written and edited for hundreds of clients over nearly ten years, producing purposeful prose that feels authentic and well crafted. I began tracking the numbers in only 2015 and since then have edited and proofread over 5.5 million words.

Do I need a Professional Freelance Editor?

Many think an editor’s job is just to check for typos and there are free apps out there, so why pay? An editor’s job is so much more than that! It’s not just what you say, it’s how you say it that sells books. So we sell the delight and intoxication, not the perfume. Well-written books will climb the ranks and help grow your audience for your next book or can drive traffic if you’re using it as a lead magnet for clients.

Whether you’re in need of a freelance book editor in Glasgow or in the surrounding areas, or looking for a remote editor if we’re more global neighbours then get in touch. I work with clients face-to-face and via Skype, so no matter how far away we are, we can still sit down together and chat over coffee.

What if I want to learn how to do it myself?

If you’re trying to work out how to stay motivated, finish your book, get it published, or market your self-published book then you’re using up your valuable time that could be better spent on what you enjoy. I also provide author coaching sessions where I can provide you with the tools, resources, and accountability to finish and publish your book.

Think how much time you are going to save not having to research everything you need to know to become an author! I can coach you on the techniques so you can learn how to write, publish, and marketing your book quicker, better, and smarter. We can take action on your writing locally and digitally and together. I coach people from concept to publication and beyond, fiction and nonfiction authors, aspiring and experienced novelists and business owners who want to elevate their status in their respective industry.

I’ve also curated a massive list of the exact apps and resources that will save you time and help you become published quicker and keep your sanity! I love helping authors define their audience and showing them how to appeal to readers.

If you are an individual with a story to tell or an entrepreneur or business owner based in Glasgow, Edinburgh, or along the Central Belt then I’m happy to travel within reason. Alternatively, we can book a Skype session to work together.
