Hello and welcome! My name is Jane, and I’m an editor and proofreader living in the Cambridgeshire fens.
I offer services in copy-editing, proofreading and book formatting. I also offer a consultation service, or a complete project management service should you require, tailor-made to your needs.
I work with independent writers, helping them craft their work to the highest standards, concentrating on the reader’s experience, while all the time retaining the writer’s voice and style. I understand how overwhelming the publishing world can be, and I offer a friendly, understanding ear to help you navigate the best path for you and your book, whether that be traditional or self-publishing.
I also work with businesses and community groups. I can review your literature and digital copy to ensure the highest standards, help you present a professional image, and ensure clarity and suitability for your intended audience. No job is too large or too small, and I can often offer a very fast turnaround time if you’re in a rush.
I have over 20 years experience in working on fiction and non-fiction books, newsletters, brochures, magazine articles, websites and more. I have trained in both editing and proofreading with the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), and I also run my own small indie publishing house, so I understand the publishing process from start to finish. I also know how nerve-wracking it can be!
Please feel free to browse my site, including the FAQs. I offer a free, no-obligation initial consultation, and/or a free 500-word sample edit or proofread of your manuscript. Please contact me if you’d like to know more, or if you’d like to understand more about how you could benefit from hiring me!
As a member of the SfEP, I abide by its Code of Practice.
I thought I had a good eye for detail until I used Jane’s services! Jane has proofread a range of texts for me including lengthy blog posts, magazine articles and even job applications. In particular, I was impressed by her ability to spot inconsistencies in style and tense that had passed me by. I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again.A.W.
I have had the pleasure of working with Jane for the past three years and her editorial services have been invaluable. As a writer and scriptwriter I have written several scripts of varying styles and lengths and one novel. Jane has professionally copy-edited and proofread each one, returning them (sometimes to very tight deadlines) annotated with corrections and suggestions, all clearly marked and explained. Jane is diligent and hard working and has a great eye for detail. She will sometimes challenge my work and offer alternative ideas which I hadn’t thought of. I will continue to use Jane’s services and skills in the future and I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone.D.J., Managing Director, DMJ-Imagery Ltd.
