Why choose me to edit your novel?

  • Training and experience

    I’m a qualified editor and published author. This means I bring to your book not only editorial expertise but a deep understanding of line craft and the key elements of fiction.
  • Sensitivity

    Good editing should empower you, not deflate you. As your editor, my job isn’t to judge your work. It’s to give you thoughtful, constructive feedback with one aim – to help you craft the best version of your book while keeping your voice and style intact.
  • Creative control

    I use the Track Changes and Comment features in Word to edit your manuscript so that everything I do is visible. You decide which edits to accept and which to reject, retaining full creative control of your work.
  • Professional standards

    I’m an associate member of the Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd) and an entry-level member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP), and am bound by their Codes of Practice and Ethics. With every job, I aim for the highest editorial standards.

the result was a much better script that I proudly presented to my publisher

When I got my manuscript back from Angela, I was shocked to realise it wasn’t just a couple of typos here and there as I’d imagined. She had done a huge job, and the result was a much better script that I proudly presented to my publisher. So, from the bottom of my heart, a big Thank You to Angela.

Annika Ohlson-Smith, Fiction Author

I highly recommend Angela to anyone who wants to release the best version of their book

I found Angela to be an exceptional editor to work with. I had trialled a number of freelance editors previously and the editing process with Angela was by far the smoothest I have ever experienced.

Jax Calder, Fiction Author

a killer combination for polishing a manuscript

Working with Angela is always an enriching experience. She’s an editor who is fully committed to her clients, helping craft the best possible stories with a keen eye for detail, while still respecting the author’s voice and creativity.
